The 1975 have won Best British Band supported by Pizza Express at the NME Awards 2020 in London this evening (February 12). Watch their acceptance video above.

Returning to the O2 Academy Brixton and hosted by Katherine Ryan and Julie Adenuga, the NME Awards celebrates the best of the last 12 months in music. See the full running list of winners so far here.

The band – who also won the Innovation Award – beat IDLES, Krept & Konan, Bring Me The Horizon and The Big Moon to pick up the Best British Band accolade.

“Thank you so much ladies and gentlemen, we’re deeply humbled,” said frontman Matty Healy. “I could talk for ages. I talk too much. Actions speak louder than words so we love you. Thank you so much. Take care.”

The night opened with a performance of ‘Deal Wiv it’ from Mura Masa and Slowthai, followed by subsequent performances from Beabadoobee, Yungblud and AJ Tracey. The 1975 will return to the stage later to close the show with a finale performance.
