The 1975 want to headline Glastonbury Festival 2019
It was over a year ago that The 1975 first teased the follow-up to their 2016’s I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It.
Earlier today (Thursday 31st May), The 1975 went on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to debut their new long-awaited single “Give Yourself A Try”. Frontman Matty Healy also revealed the band’s audacious plans for next year which would see them hit the touring road in January 2019.
“I think it’s about time you headlined some major festivals,” said Mac (obviously hinting at Glastonbury Festival) – Healy’s reply was somewhat discombobulated saying: “haha, so do we, anyway, um, we’ve got a lot, um, yeh”.
The Mancunian band also announced they’ll be releasing two albums in the next 12 months – with the first due out in October, bearing the name ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, will be followed by ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ which is set to drop in May of next year, just one month prior to Glastonbury 2019.
The 1975 took to The Other Stage back in 2016 which was the last time they graced Worthy Farm.
