5SOS's Ashton says The 1975 are 'helping open the gateway' for young bands

Ashton Irwin, who drums for 5 Seconds Of Summer, has revealed that he is a big fan of The 1975 and believes they're great role models for upcoming bands to aspire to. 

The heartthrob took to his official Twitter page earlier this evening (May 24) and told his followers that: "The 1975 have been so important for upcoming bands! So happy they exist, and are helping open the gateway for young bands."

Matt Healy, The 1975's frontman, told Britain's NME magazine that on the night their latest album 'I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It' landed at No.1 in the UK he went home and celebrated by playing video games with his little brothers:

"I didn't really (celebrate), in a party sense. We were very focused on the London shows and it's a really long set. I've been spending a lot of time with my brother as well, who I haven't seen for a while. He's 15. I actually ended up just going back to my house and playing FIFA (soccer game) with him until 2am. And then I slept under a towel 'cause I didn't have another duvet. The night my album went to number one I slept under a towel."
