'Britain's biggest new band" - Q
'one of this year's biggest breakouts" - Billboard
They may have only left the country two weeks ago, but UK outfit The 1975 will return to Australian shores in January 2015 for three massive east coast shows. Taking to the stage at Melbourne's Festival Hall, Sydney's Hordern Pavilion and their first headlining show in QLD's capital at Brisbane's Tivoli Theatre, the hysteria continues to grow for the four-piece on Australian turf.
Last month the Brit-rockers toured across Australia for Splendour In the Grass and four sold out sideshows. Venues were upgraded, second shows were added and it was clear that the worldwide force of The 1975 had hit Australia.
Having played over 400 global shows in the last 18 months and put in countless miles on the road, The 1975 have seen crowds grow significantly throughout 2014. Fuelled by word of mouth buzz, their live shows continue to thrill whilst consistently confounding expectations. The band, a recent US VEVO Lift Artist and MTV Artist to Watch, won the mtvU Breaking Woodie for Best Emerging Artist at this year's SXSW and have performed on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
The 1975's debut album 'The 1975" is out now via Sony Music Australia. A collection of memories, overheard conversations, and snapshots in time, The 1975's eponymous debut album is a love letter to youth, played out in bold and brash technicolor. Having topped the UK album charts and sold out every headline show to date, The 1975 have cemented their status as Britain's biggest new band.
