Matt Healy of The 1975 talks with The Guardian about how he has survived the last two years on the road.
Gigs in Britain are pretty much the only time I see or talk to my family. Sometimes, I feel guilty when I get a call from someone saying: "I haven't heard from you in a month." I think: "Wow, that's not right." You have to make an effort. That kind of thing keeps you grounded and sane. I feel that my family are more understanding than my friends, though. They get it.

The Gaslight Anthem share with NME that they were influenced by The 1975 on their new album, Get Hurt. We talk about the producer choice in today's special episode of the AP.net Podcast.
The band tracked down producer Mike Crossey in an effort to see if they could tap into something similar to the British group. "We were like, 'well that sounds different Ė what would happen if a band like us works with a guy who makes records sound like that?'" says Fallon.

Seventeen Magazine have "interviewed" The 1975.
With their seriously cute rocker looks, it's no surprise that the boys admitted they've "got, like, briefcases full of bras" from fans. But in case you've sent a special gift to the guys, you'll be happy to know that they keep them all! "We keep everything. We keep absolutely everything. But we canít fit everything in our [apartment] anymore. Itís too much stuff!" said Matthew. The coolest thing they've ever gotten? "[Puzzles] of our own faces. That was pretty cool."

The 1975 were guests on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning and took part in the "Call or Delete" prank phonecall game. Matty Healy not only prank called Niall Horan and Harry Styles of One Direction but also confirmed that he is writing music for the group (which may add more of an explanation to this photo). Listen to the whole bit in the replies.
