The 1975 have announced an intimate London show for next month.

The Manchester band will take to the stage at the 2000-capacity Pryzm in Kingston on Thursday, October 13 ahead of releasing their fifth album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language, the following day (October 14).

Tickets are due to go on sale “over-the-counter-only” at Banquet Records this Sunday (October 2) at 9am. Fans can gain access to the special gig by purchasing one of three album/ticket bundles that are available via the record shop. Alternatively, a ticket-only option costs £16.

Any remaining tickets will go up for sale through Banquet’s official website at 5pm that same day. You can find more information here, and see the announcement tweets below.

The 1975 have already shared four singles from the forthcoming Being Funny in a Foreign Language: ‘Part of the Band’, ‘Happiness’, ‘I’m in Love With You’, and most recently ‘All I Need to Hear’.

Last month, Matty Healy and co. made their long-awaited UK return with a pair of headline sets at Reading & Leeds 2022.

The group are set to embark on a UK and Ireland arena tour in January 2023. See the full list of dates and find any remaining tickets here.

Speaking to Rolling Stone UK for a cover feature this summer, frontman Healy revealed that The 1975’s upcoming shows will feel more “intimate” than their previous gigs.

“I want people to feel like they’re in a little theatre as opposed to an IMAX because, you know, in an IMAX you can just go to the toilet,” he explained.

Elsewhere in the conversation, the singer discussed embracing ideals and being more earnest on Being Funny…. “This record definitely takes those ideas and says, ‘Well, nihilism in your 20s is very sexy, and very cool and well done, and maybe appropriate,’” Healy told RS UK.

Meanwhile, Matty Healy recently expanded on his decision to turn down a lucrative offer to support Ed Sheeran on tour.
