English indie rockers The 1975 have just announced that they’ll be following up their recent debut at a major US festival (Coachella) with a world tour this fall. They’ll start this side of the Atlantic on November 1 Montreal. From there, they’ll move on to Toronto and then enter the US through Detroit and onto to the Midwest. After playing the Roseland Ballroom in Portland, OR, on November 13, the band will play shows in Vancouver and Seattle, and then head down the West Coast, playing Los Angeles and Seattle, before going on to a run through Arizona and Texas. They’ll play Track 29 in Chattanooga, TN, on November 28 and then hit Atlanta and Raleigh, NC. The group’s East Coast will start on December 2 at Echostage in Washington D.C., then play Philadelphia, before finishing up with two shows at Terminal 5 in New York on December 4 and 5.
Hailing from Manchester, England, The 1975 first formed when its members were still in high school. In August 2012, the group released their first EP, Facedown, and followed it up with three more over the following ten months. The releases, along with a heavy touring schedule, generated significant interest and earned them a serious fan base. In September 2013, the band released their first full-length album, The 1975, which hit No. 1 on the UK charts and 28 on the US charts.
