The 1975 conquered the O2 Arena in London
AMAZING is an understatement for what a great year it has been for The 1975 - this British rock band from Manchester conquered a lot of huge venues this year for their tour of their sophomore album, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. In fact, their last show before their holiday break is a sold out 2-night show at the infamous O2 Arena in London.
This four-member band has been around the indie-rock scene for couple of years now and been touring nonstop. They've released their first self-title album last 2013 and been touring all over the globe since then.
The band went hiatus for almost six months earlier this year doing nothing but focus on recording their second album in Los Angeles, California. Giving their fans only pink pictures of random things on Instagram and endless and typewritten poems by Matty Healy, band's front man, and vintage comic strips.
Rewind to early this summer wherein the band has pulled a stunt on their fans and deactivate all their account on social media for straight 24 hours. Which made their fans basically insane only just to realize that this is a rebirth of a much pinker than ever version of themselves.
Since then they've been huge on social media and cater to their dedicated audience as they tour all over the world. They've been known for passionate fans who waits in line for hours and even days just to get tickets for their shows and to buy their limited edition merchandise.
When they released the tickets for their upcoming show on O2, they were immediately sold out and they have to release more the day after. Which says a lot of their status being this huge name on music nowadays.
They've received an award from BBC as Best Live Lounge performance and also they are nominated for their deluxe box set in Grammy's 2016.
We are seen as lazy. We are seen as immature. We are even seen as what many have called “weak”, but those of us inside of that golden box, the box the generations before us made that we’re all stuck inside of, we know that it is the complete opposite –we are incredibly strong.
These movies have gone on to be not only redefining but has also become synonymous for New York.
I have tried writing the end of this paragraph, this biography, several times but nothing felt right. Nothing felt natural; I don’t want to explain the past of these guys. You have to listen to their stories and what they have to say.
ACL’s lineup never disappoints, and this year is no different. Headliners include Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Killers. Other highly anticipated artists such as Solange, Portugal. The Man, Foster the People, and Vance Joy are sure to impress.
he five tracks in the EP have built upon their old sounds. The tremendous influences from R&B and hip-hop that are met with Jessie Rutherford’s original love for pop music as a kid, a unique blend that creates this overarching sense of direction for the band.
