The 1975 Premiere New Video for "Robbers"

The 1975 have finally unveiled their official video for "Robbers"! Click HERE or below to check out the new clip directed by Tim Mattia. "I got really obsessed with the idea behind Patricia Arquette’s character in True Romance when I was about eighteen," explains frontman Matthew Healy, "That craving for the bad boy in that film it’s so sexualised. It was something I was obsessed with. 'Robbers' is about a heist that goes wrong – I suppose you can read it as a metaphor – and a girl who’s obsessed with her professional killer boyfriend. It’s a romantic ideal."

The 39-track deluxe edition of The 1975's self-titled debut album is available now on iTunes. The guys are currently out on their North American headline run with Bad Suns as direct support. All upcoming tour dates can be found HERE.

School of Seven Bells Announce Put Your Sad Down Record Store Day 10" Details

School of Seven Bells is pleased to announce the Put Your Sad Down 10" which will be made available at participating stores on Record Store Day 2014 (4/19/14). In August 2013, an extremely limited run of 500 copies of the EP were manufactured and solely on sale at a special sold-out benefit in New York City, to raise money to support producer/guitarist Benjamin Curtis' recovery during his battle with T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. This marked the first and only time the EP was released physically.

The remaining copies unsold from the benefit (about 300 to be exact) will be made available for the first time since, this coming Saturday. Each of the 300 copies comes with a dust sleeve designed by graphic artist Blanda Eggenschwiler, commissioned specifically for the production and 100% of the proceeds went directly to Benjamin and his fight.

Put Your Sad Down is the last studio release recorded by School of Seven Bells. Benjamin Curtis lost his battle to cancer at age 35 on Sunday evening, December 29, 2013 in New York City after courageously combating the condition for nearly a year.
