The 1975 have cancelled their 2021 tour plans, but are officially working on a new album

The 1975 have cancelled all their forthcoming touring for the year ahead.

In a statement, the band write: "We are really sorry to announce that we have made the decision to cancel all scheduled touring for 2021.

"These are incredibly difficult times for a lot of people, and until we can be sure that we will be able to play shows in a way that is safe for our fans and crew, we have decided the best course of action is to cancel our touring so that, where possible, everyone can get their tickets refunded sooner rather than later."

It's not all bad news, though. While we've had rumours of an album from the band's pre-fame guise Drive Like I Do - possibly dropping as soon as next month - they go on to confirm they're working on a brand new record as The 1975.

"We're currently making a new album and look forward to seeing you all at a show as soon as it is safe to do so," they state.

So, no Finsbury Park this summer, but perhaps a new record. Music For Covid, anyone? Sorry. Really, very sorry.
