On Sunday the band posted a series of cryptic messages that alluded to them splitting up. The band's frontman Matt Healy posted a comic strip which seemed to suggest the band were done.
As well as including drawing of an Old Matty and a New Matty, the comic said “Our projected identity must change not only visually but philosophically – how do you do that?...Firstly we must reclaim our identity & repossess our control of it…Until then there won’t be any pop music or dancing with long hair…The hardest part of any relationship is to say goodbye…So we must leave, with a parting ‘we love you.’”
The band then vanished from social media. You can view the comic strip below.
The 1975 released their self-titled debut album in 2013. The second album is expected to be released soon.
Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday (June 5th) and are available for O2 Priority customers tomorrow (Thursday June 4th) at 9am.
