UPDATE (27th November, 10:40am):
No matter which year you’re born in, The 1975 will make Laneway Festival Singapore 2016 even more of a smash not to miss.
That’s right, festival goers! The English indie rock band is going to perform at next year’s Laneway Festival Singapore 😉
Formed in 2002, The 1975 consists of vocalist/guitarst Matthew Healy, guitarist Adam Hann, drummer George Daniel, and bassist Ross MacDonald.
The English indie rock band has been garnering fans since the release of its hit debut album in 2013. So far, they’ve released 4 EPs, but its self-titled debut album was the one that blasted them to stardom by getting to the top spot in the UK Albums Chart in September 2013.
In the following year, the lads kicked off their sold-out UK tour that included shows at both Manchester Academy and London’s Brixton Academy. They continued with landmark shows at the Royal Albert Hall and Alexandra Palace before going on a sold-out tour across the US.
Earlier in October this year, the band released “Love Me”, their latest single from their 2nd album. Titled “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It”, the album is slated for release in February 2016.
With The 1975 being the notable addition to the current lineup, festival goers are guaranteed to have an epic good time at Laneway Festival 2016.
