Currently on tour, The 1975 are still riding high on the success of their second album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It. However frontman, Matt Healy claims the band are already working on album number three.The Manchester band went straight to number one back in February with their latest album in both the UK and America. Now touring, Matt Healy recently sat down for a chat with Billboard in between shows over in the States.
Never ones to stop working, the lead singer claimed there could be new music from The 1975 within a year. While talking to Billboard, he said that “I’m always making an album”.
He stated earlier in the year when speaking to NME that the current indie scene, avoid criticism by saying “I hate that indie band bullshit of acting like you don’t care so you don’t get judged about being shit. That’s what indie is now. That fey sense of ‘we don’t care’. Well, don’t do it then. Fuck off and do something else.”
So when he spoke to Billboard about how the band never stop working, you can’t help but think they’re a band that don’t just care about their own success but making sure the songs they put out to the public are worthy of their success. “I’m always confused by the language of bands who are ‘going to make a record’ or not being able to write on tour. I think that’s just something you do – whenever, wherever”.
The 1975 have only recently finished a sold out UK tour and are currently performing across North America but the Manchester band will be back in the summer to perform at Reading & Leeds.
