Biography

The 1975 are an English indie band who formed in Manchester. The quartet is comprised of Matt Healy (vocals, guitar), Adam Hann (guitar), Ross MacDonald (bass) and George Daniel (drums). The group formed in 2004 and played under different names like Talkhouse, The Big Sleep, The Slowdown and Drive Like I Do. They started using the name The 1975 in 2012, after Healy saw the date "1 June, The 1975" in the back of a beat poetry book.

The band put out four EPs before the release of their debut album. The first of these, 'Facedown', was released on August 6 2012 and was followed by 'Sex', 'Music For Cars' and 'IV'. Their self-titled first LP was then released on September 2 2013. It was recorded at Liverpool's Motor Museum with Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg, Foals) and was released on Dirty Hit. It went to Number One in the UK and has since gone platinum.

The 1975 have toured consistently since their formation and have supported the likes of Muse, The Neighbourhood and Bastille. They played three sold out headline shows at London's Brixton Academy in January 2014 before headlining Royal Albert Hall in April 2014 and Alexandra Palace in September 2014.

The band recently took part in BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe's project to rescore Nicolas Winding Refn's film, Drive, contributing a new song to the reimagined soundtrack.
