The album can also be purchased in a variety of physical formats: CD, double gatefold vinyl on heavyweight transparent pink vinyl and a super deluxe box set HERE.
Last week THE 1975 announced their 2016 headline tour which kicks off April 18th in Los Angeles at Shrine Expo Hall. The tour will hit major cities including Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Boston’s Tsongas Center, Columbus’ LC Pavilion, Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and more. Tickets are available now HERE.
The 1975 are one of the breakthrough British bands of the past decade. They got together as school friends on the outskirts of Manchester and arrived, reinvigorating the alternative scene as they took 2013 by storm. It was a year that set the band on what Matthew Healy has described as a “delirious ascent”. Propelled by anthemic songs such as “Chocolate” and “Girls,” their self-titled debut album entered the UK charts at No 1 and went on to sell 1 million albums worldwide. The 1975 have shifted over 1 million singles in the U.S. and sold in excess of 500,000 tickets stateside.
