After the recent publicity stunt that cryptically suggested the band could end, Manchester-based rockers The 1975 have today confirmed that they will be releasing their second studio album, as well as going on tour again at the end of the year.
In a letter to fans, the band said:
“[The album’s] creation signifies the end of the most inspiring and challenging time that we’ve ever shared as friends and artists… [We want to play] in venues we have loved and places that feel intimate enough to do a proper new show”
The band enigmatically tweeted a picture of the album’s artwork, yesterday.
The foursome will be embarking on a 16-date tour which commences on the 9th November in Liverpool. Following dates will include Nottingham, Edinburgh and Cambridge, before coming to Southampton’s O2 Guildhall on the 21st November. The band will then play Southend, London, Brighton and Swindon before finishing up the tour in their hometown of Manchester on the 28th November.
The release date for the album, which is currently known as 2, has yet to be announced
You can buy tickets for their upcoming tour here, on Friday 5th June when the general public sale starts. O2 priority members can purchase advanced tickets tomorrow (Thursday 4th June)
