It's another Manchester invasion on the horizon.
Manchester natives The 1975 announced their first ever live dates in the United States. They are popping their American cherry.
The headlining run will kick off in Chicago on March 20 at Subterranean and wind down on March 31 at the 96X Spring Fling in Norfolk, Virginia. The band is currently at work completing their debut album, co-produced by Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, The Kooks), which is due out in early summer via Vagrant Records in the U.S.
Over the past few months, The 1975 - comprised of Matthew Healy (vocals), Adam Hann (guitar), Ross MacDonald (bass), and George Daniel (drums) -- have been rolling out a series of EPs to showcase a selection of the songs that will be featured on the forthcoming album, including the much blogged about tracks "Sex," "You," and "Chocolate."
