UK Band The 1975 Announce North American

SANTA MONICA, CA (CelebrityAccess) — The 1975 will embark on a North American headline tour in supporting their sophomore album, ‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it.’ The album is available on February 26, 2016 via Dirty Hit/Interscope. The UK art-pop quartet will kick off their tour in Los Angeles on April 18 at the Shrine Expo Hall and will hit major cities.


‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it' is available for pre-order now in a variety of physical formats: CD, double gatefold vinyl on heavyweight transparent pink vinyl and a super deluxe box set.


Billboard called "Love Me," "a spirited step away from the radio-friendly teen rock of its debut" and "an impressive coming-of-age shift," while Spin noted that "'Love Me' shows the band loosening their grip on accomplishing much of anything beyond the sprawling, joyous fun of making good tunes."


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 became a successful part of the alternative scene. It was a year that set the band on what Matthew Healy has described as a "delirious ascent." Propelled by their hit 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.
