On October 17, 2000 the short-lasting nu metal hype reached a potential peak when the Jacksonville-based heavyweights released their third full-length and the lines between alternative culture and mainstream pop went full blurry.

Needless to say, we support this cause on all levels.
Almost a decade after first arriving on our musical map the British pop heavyweights have finally released their fourth full-length. It became a wild ride, yet a very personal reflection on Matt Healy's twenties and maybe the middle of this lockdown is the perfect moment to talk about what appears to be the end of an era for the group. NBHAP head and longtime The 1975 fan Norman Fleischer spoke with the band leader about past, present and partly also future.
