The 1975 Announce First US Live Dates

Manchester natives The 1975 today announced their first ever live dates in the United States. The headlining run will kick off in Chicago, IL on March 20th at Subterranean and wind down on March 31st at the 96X Spring Fling in Norfolk, VA. The band is currently at work completing their debut album, co-produced by Mike Crossey (Artic Monkeys, Foals, The Kooks), which is due out in early summer via Vagrant.

Over the past few months, The 1975 – comprised of Matthew Healy (vocals), Adam Hann (guitar), Ross MacDonald (bass), and George Daniel (drums) -- have been rolling out a series of EPs to showcase a selection of the songs that will be be featured on their highly anticipated forthcoming album, including the much blogged about tracks “Sex”, “You”, and “Chocolate” (listen below).

The 1975 have already taken the UK by storm – a result of their amorphous drifts between brooding art rock, crisp electronica, dancefloor R&B, and 80s gloss pop – channeling a diverse range of influences including Joy Division, Alt-J, Peter Gabriel, Phoenix, and more. Late last year, their track “Sex” was declared the most viral track of the week in the UK on Spotify and was selected for “In New Music We Trust” on BBC’s Radio One.

See below for all announced live dates and stay tuned for additional dates to be announced including appearances at Austin’s SXSW festival.
