We’re officially on pop emergency standing, people – The 1975 have done their vanishing act again, suggesting we’re on the verge of a new ‘era’ for the band.

Earlier today, we noticed the band’s website had gone blank. While that could have simply been a technical error, the band have since deleted their Instagram and Twitter accounts. It’s a trick the band have played in the past when moving between album eras.

The 1975 have been in the studio at work on new music, and at least one teasy tweet from inside their camp arrived over the weekend, with manager Jamie Oborne hyping the new record.

Back at the start of January, the band shared photos from the studio, including a to-do list that stated they should ‘make [a] great record’, while frontman Matty Healy’s appeared late in 2021 supporting Phoebe Bridgers in LA with new songs in tow.

It’s time to start looking for posters, checking source code and watching social media like digital hawks, Dear Reader. Let the nonsense commence.
