The band is touring in support of A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships (Dirty Hit/Interscope Records), which Pitchfork declared “outrageous and eclectic” and Rolling Stone hailed as “spectacular.” It’s the quartet’s third consecutive album to top The Official U.K. Albums Chart. The 1975 took honors for best British Group and British Album of the Year at the 2019 BRIT Awards and were recently awarded two Ivor Novello awards – Songwriters Of The Year and Best Contemporary Song (“Love It If We Made It”).
In the States, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships claimed the No. 1 position on the Top Album Sales, Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was named one of the best albums of 2018 by numerous publications, including Pitchfork, TIME, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly and the Los Angeles Times. “Love It If We Made It” appeared on Best Songs of 2018 lists of critics at The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Vulture and NPR, with the latter noting, “‘Love It If We Made It’ feels like scrolling through a rapidly refreshing Twitter timeline…Even if modernity’s failed us, there’s a glimmer of hope in the explosive chorus.”
Following acclaimed main stage performances at Coachella and Governors Ball, The 1975 will headline Reading and Leeds in the U.K. in August. The band won praise for its spring U.S. shows. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said, “The 1975’s Matt Healy redefines rock stardom.” Praising their “raucous rock,“ the Boston Globe hailed them as “one of pop’s most exciting acts of this decade.” Reviewing their Governors Ball set, Billboard said The 1975 presented “a powerful sense of unity…The performance is a balance of impassioned and euphoric.”
