British pop-rock band The 1975 have announced that they will be embarking on a huge US tour commencing in April. The band have been making waves all over the world since releasing their second studio album ‘I Like it When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It’ in 2016.
The 1975 are one of the hottest bands to come out of the UK over the last few years. Following the release of their self-titled debut album in 2013, the Manchester four-piece have not only stormed the charts in their home country, but have also managed to make a significant impact in the USA.
Fusing elements of indie, electro and conventional rock, The 1975 seem to have come up with the perfect formula for fantastic contemporary pop music, and much like the bands of the mid 2000s such as Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines, The 1975 seem to have tapped into the current youth consciousness.
This undeniable affiliation with young people in the UK and US has been generated by the outspoken sentiments of lead singer Matt Healy, who has seemingly declared himself the voice of the disenfranchised progressive youth.
Over the last few months Healy has given several speeches referencing both Brexit and result of the US election and in many ways, this is the perfect time for the band to tour the states. Amazing performances and a good pinch of controversy lie ahead.
