I am bored of nationalism and I’m bored of racism. It’s over. Nationalism, religion, all these regressive things, they’re over. We can’t carry on in the way that we’re carrying on…
We’re from Manchester, right, and where we used to hang out, the actual place that we used to hang out, someone put a bomb in there tonight and then killed a bunch of kids, who were going to a fucking show in Manchester.
I don’t need to be educated on fucking anything to say that, that is fucking bullshit and I don’t know what it’s in the name of so I apologize if it’s not in name of religion or nationalism but these are the things that keep happening and I am fucking pissed off about it, and I am sorry.
For all of those who are wondering what is going on regarding The 1975 "changing their name":
Matty tweeted the following two statements:
1. “The 1975 are currently working on the final instalment of their trilogy of albums: Music For Cars”
2. “Drive Like I Do will release their debut album during spring time in the coming few years”
What this means (according to the news):
The 1975 is going to release one more album under their current name, completing a trilogy of albums (Music For Cars, consisting of: The 1975, ILIWYSFYASBYSUOI and a third album).
After that third album is released, they will continue under the name Drive Like I Do and release a new album (it’s described as their “debut album” because it will be the first new album they release under that name).
