The 1975 with The Japanese House
May 5, 2016 @ 6:00 pm
The 1975 will embark on a North American headline tour in support of their much-anticipated sophomore album, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it. The album is available February 26, 2016 via Dirty Hit /Interscope. The UK art-pop quartet will hit major cities including a performance at Austin360 Amphitheater at Circuit of The Americas on Thursday, May 5, 2016.
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.
