Hailing originally from Wilmslow and now based in Manchester, The 1975 will release their fourth album ‘Notes on a conditional form’ on 21 February, just after their appearance at Leeds First Direct Arena on 17 February, part of their latest UK tour.
The band’s genre has been described as pop rock, although there has been debate about this over the years. Their first 3 albums all reached No.1 in the UK, with the second also hitting the top spot in the USA, all of which bodes well for the forthcoming release.
Together since high school days and having toured widely and undergone several transitions, band members are:
Matthew Healy, lead vocalist and rhythm guitar
Adam Hann lead guitar
Ross MacDonald bassist
George Daniel drummer
Their February Dates:
Newcastle upon Tyne 16th
and in March:

Adam combines his interest in Leeds with a flair for writing discovered back in school days. He says he’ll tackle any topic as long as it’s Leeds.
