The 1975, January 2016: Here We Go Again!

UK buzz quartet The 1975 are set to continue their love affair with Antipodean fans with the announcement of (yet) another tour to Australia and New Zealand in January 2016 to possibly coincide with a sophomore album release.

Announced via a somewhat self-indulgent type-written letter from lead singer Matthew Healy, exploring much of the history of the band and their meteoric rise since the release of their self-titled debut in 2013, the tour and the later production stages of their second LP represents a “new phase” for the band:

“This is the beginning of a new chapter for The 1975. Our new record signifies the start of a new world for us, a more colourful world a less colourful world [sic].”

Amidst the rambling, kid let loose in a lolly shop enthusiasm and questionable eloquence, there is a real enthusiasm on Matthew Healy’s end. It’s likely to be reciprocated throughout much of the country, not least Brisbane, where in 2015 The 1975’s gig was upgraded from the Tivoli to the RNA Showgrounds’ Marquee. This tour will be their fourth to Australia in three years, after 2014’s debut visit, return for Splendour with sideshows, and this years’ earlier headline tour which added an Adelaide date as well as extra Melbourne and Sydney dates due to demand.
