Following up four critically acclaimed EPs, British alt-rockers The 1975 made their highly anticipated album debut in 2013, edging out the Nine Inch Nails' comeback record for the No. 1 spot on the UK Albums Chart. Featuring the band's signature blend of classic '80s pop and ethereal electronic elements, the self-titled album's outsized drum breaks and kaleidoscopic guitar work translate beautifully in concert settings. Hot on the heels of a string of intimate performances in 2013, The 1975 have fans eagerly awaiting their 2014 North American tour dates.
The members of The 1975 have been making music together since 2002, but it wasn't until 2012 that they began recording under the moniker. Over the course of 2012-2013 the band released 4 EPs, exploring a variety of styles ranging from synthpop to shoegaze. Their self-titled 2013 debut synthesized these elements, topping the UK Albums charts and spawning five singles including "Chocolate" and "Sex." Encoring their 2013 US shows, the band will treat North American fans to another batch of intimate performances in 2014.
