      EVENT DETAILS
      THE 1975 (SF LIVE DEBUT) WITH BAD SUNS THURSDAY JULY 25

      Healy, McDonald, Hann and Daniel met at school in Manchester as teenagers and began to play music in 2002. After Hann invited the members to form a band, they passed their early days covering punk songs in a local club. Healy was originally the drummer, but took over vocals after the previous singer left to start another band. Daniel was recruited as the new drummer to complete the final lineup. Having previously performed and released material under various names including Talkhouse, The Slowdown, Bigsleep, and Drive Like I Do, the band eventually settled on the name The 1975. Healy recounts that the name came from the back page of an old Beat poetry book, whose previous owner had written "1 June. The 1975" inside. Further writings inside, detailing a suicide note from a previous owner describing his descent into insanity and his desire to take his own life, struck a chord with Healy. The band first appeared as The 1975 in January 2012, in the run up to the release of their first EP and after signing to UK based Indie label Dirty Hit. In April 2012, The 1975 supported Little Comets on their nationwide tour. The release of their 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 second single Sex. They embarked on a tour of the UK and Ireland which extended in to early 2013, before beginning a US tour in the spring. They found mainstream chart success in spring 2013 with third single "Chocolate", which reached number 19 in the UK singles chart.
