The 1975 is definitely back from hiatus. After scaring their fans with rumors of the group pursuing solo careers, Matt Healy, George Daniel, Adam Hann and Ross MacDonald revealed that they will be going on a huge tour and releasing a new album soon.
According to The Music, the indie pop band is set to return to Australia for a massive 2016 tour. They will be heading to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth from Jan. 17-23. Tickets started to go on sale last July 17.
Early this year, the group announced that they will be only playing in smaller venues moving forwards so that only the “most dedicated” fans will be able to attend. In the open letter written by the group, they said that they felt it was necessary to go back to intimate settings where they could give their fans a “proper show.” They added that they only wanted to play for fans who really wanted or needed to be there.
Fans of The 1975 were heartbroken when Healy posted a cryptic tweet saying ““SO WE MUST LEAVE, WITH A PARTING ‘WE LOVE YOU’ — WE ARE ALREADY GONE.” Many took this as a sign that the group is breaking up for good. It also did not help that the band deactivated all of their social media accounts for good. Some, however, speculated that it was merely a publicity stunt to draw attention to their upcoming album and tour.
