The band will be releasing two albums in the next 12 months.
June 1st is an important date to Manchester pop force The 1975, as the group’s frontman Matty Healy named the band after finding “1st June – The 1975” written in a tattered poetry book. The date remains as one of the foursome’s trademark marketing tactics, as they use today to release a new single titled “Give Yourself A Try” after months of blind anticipation.
The song is a strong contrast to “Love Me” (the multi-platinum single that led the way for the band’s 2016 album), but shows the true roots upon which The 1975 was built.
“What would you say to your younger self,” Healy questions on the reflective record. “Growing a beard’s quite hard and whiskey never starts to taste nice. And you’ll make a lot of money and it’s funny ‘cus you’ll move somewhere sunny and get addicted to drugs.”
It was also revealed that the group will be releasing two albums in the next 12 months, with “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships” due in October and “Notes On A Conditional Form” in May 2019. The onslaught of new material will also be accompanied by a worldwide tour, which reportedly kicks off at the beginning of next year.
