The 1975's Matt Healy gives new interview about life during quarantine

Matty Healy has given a brand new interview about life during quarantine [listen below].

During the interview, The 1975 frontman has revealed who he's self-isolating with during the coronavirus crisis, what he's been getting up to during these unprecedented times, and the possibility of the band making a brand new album.

The 'Love Me' hitmaker has revealed the band hope to tour as soon as the pandemic ends, but is unsure how long it will take before things return back to normal for everyone.

He told BBC Radio One that The 1975 will embark on a new era once their much-delayed album, Notes On A Conditional Form, is released this year - the second in their 'Music For Cars' series following 2018's A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

He has also teased that their next record will be "quite violent" and in the vein of the track 'People' from 'NOACF,' which saw the band switch up their sound and incorporate punk, hardcore and industrial rock elements.

Healy said: "This isn’t necessarily the last record, I don’t think it is the last record, but it’s the end of this era, whatever’s next will be very different and it will be a different time.

"I bet you we will just do a new record and I bet you it’s dope. 

"I think it’s going to be quite violent. 

"Even though 'NOACF' is really sprawling, the later statements are ones like 'People'. 

"We’re still in a place of agitation and anxiety, we’re voyeurs of violence on a geopolitical level and we’re a band, so we feel a duty to talk about that.

"And now we’re in a pandemic, so if you don’t make a record, what the f**k are you doing?"
