The 1975 Takes On 2016

Before kicking off its U.S. tour at House Of Blues Boston tonight, The 1975 unveiled the routing for its next trip through the States. The British rock band returns to our shores in April.

For first dibs on tickets to the spring tour, you’ll want to pre-order a copy of the group’s sophomore album.

I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It is due out Feb. 26 via Dirty Hit/Interscope. Matthew Healy & Co. have been praised for the LP’s first single, “Love Me.”

“From the speaker-hopping funky jangle to the unexpected but brilliant cock-rocking guitar solo, ‘Love Me’ fizzes with overweening confidence, fitting for a song Healy says is about narcissism (‘got a beautiful face but nothing to say’), and is a monster hit whatever their inspirations,” NME writes.

The 1975 wraps up 2015 with U.S. headline dates booked through Dec. 20 in Seattle. The band will also stop by The Night The Buzz Stole Christmas in Kansas City Dec. 11 and KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas in Inglewood, Calif., Dec. 13.
