The 1975        

English Alternative/Indie Rock Band Known for "Chocolate"

The 1975 are an English alternative/indie rock band based in Manchester. The group consists of Matthew Healy (vocals, guitar), Adam Hann (guitar), George Daniel (drums) and Ross MacDonald (bass).

They have released four EPs: Facedown, Sex, Music for Cars and IV. Their self-titled debut album was released in September 2013 through Dirty Hit/Polydor. The album debuted at No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart, ahead of Nine Inch Nails' comeback album.

The release of the band's first EP, entitled Facedown, in August 2012 saw the band's first UK airplay on national radio with lead track "The City," which featured as part of a BBC Introducing show with Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1. The 1975 once again garnered national radio attention in late 2012, with BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe championing their single "Sex" from the Sex EP. They embarked on a tour of the UK and Ireland which extended in to early 2013, before beginning a US tour in the spring.

Upon the release of Music for Cars EP on 4 March 2013, The 1975 found mainstream chart success with single "Chocolate," which reached No. 19 in the UK singles chart. In May 2013 the band released IV EP, which included a new version of the song "The City." The track charted in UK and received airplay in several other countries. The 1975 toured extensively to support the releases and to build hype before releasing the debut album.
