The 1975 have teased their return next month with a series of mysterious posters which have begun to pop up across the UK.

The new posters feature a fresh image of frontman Matty Healy, as well as seemingly promising new material on July 7.

As Dork initially reported, the posters come after the band’s online presence was re-activated today with social media accounts, new profile pictures and a hint at a blue, black and white colour scheme that could define the images of their forthcoming album campaign.

Elsewhere, the band’s website was updated with a photo of Matty Healy, and a new form for fans to sign up to receive “album 5 news first”.

In addition, it’s believed that June 1st is an important date in the band’s history – with Healy originally coming up with their name on that date.

You can see a selection of fan reactions below.

Healy and co. released their latest full-length, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, in May 2020. It followed on from 2018’s ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, the BRIT Awards’ Album Of The Year for 2019.

The band first confirmed they were working on new music earlier this year, when Healy took to Instagram to share a one-minute black-and-white video titled “Part 5, Day 1”.

The clip begins with the singer playing an acoustic guitar, with drums and piano also heard in the background. Later, the camera pans out to reveal what looks like a large studio space. Earlier today (January 5), Healy uploaded an image of the same setting. “Day 2,” he wrote as the caption.

Last August, Healy told fans on Instagram that he was “making another ‘classic record’”. Then in October, he played two new songs – including one called ‘New York’ – while opening for Phoebe Bridgers at her show in Los Angeles. 

The 1975 last performed live in early March 2020, shortly before the coronavirus forced the cancellation of shows worldwide.
