Hi! I'm a new fan too and a have a few questions, hopefully you don't mind answering! 1. What's chocolate about? I'm very confused. 2. What's mattys hip tattoo say? I can't find any photo low enough. 3. Do you think mattys bisexual or just curious? 4. Don't you think he looks like Shia Lebouf?? That's it !

omg so sorry it took me so long to answer this but HELLO! WELCOME!! Of course I don’t mind answering!!

1. Here is what Matty himself has to say about Chocolate:

“’Chocolate’ tells the story of our relationships with the governing authorities of our small town. Smoking weed, smoking anything I suppose, boredom and what ensues when both parties challenge one another. It’s a love letter to boredom, limited opportunities of expressing yourself and embracing and understanding the make up of where you’re from. Musically and structurally it is the blueprint of our output, but I’d need an entire book to discuss that in detail.”

I got this information courtesy of genius.com. If you ever want to learn more about the band’s songs and what they are about I highly suggest going to Genius because the contributors on there are… geniuses!!!

2. It says “WE ARE KINGS” and it comes from one of the band’s old songs that they made before The 1975 called “Wolves.” Here’s a better picture for you plus bonus belly button:

3. I cannot speak for Matty because I have not heard him explicitly state his preferences. But I do have my suspicions:

Aside from that, I believe he has a girlfriend right now.

4. Well I just googled a picture of Shia LeBouf for the first time in forever and uhhhhhh… I DONT… PERSONALLY THINK SO BUT I CAN SEE WHY YOUD THINK SO I GUESS

Singing in the Shah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran

The acoustics  in the 400 year old mosque are amazing & notes hang in the air with crystal clarity. The singer is a student from northern Iran visiting Isfahan & had always wanted to sing in the mosque because of its unique acoustic resonance qualities. You have to stand on the tiled square for perfect effect.

On 12 June 2014, ISIS killed at least 1,566 (upper estimates of 1,700) Shia Iraqi Air Force cadets in an attack on Camp Speicher in Tikrit. At the time of the attack there were between 4,000 and 11,000 unarmed cadets in the camp. Alleged ISIS fighters singled out Shia and non-Muslim cadets from Sunni ones and murdered them.

1700,
killed in cold-blood,
their warm blood trickles down the river bank
embracing every grain of sand
meandering along the Tigris,
creating watercolour paintings of youthful dreams,

1700,
mothers with their hearts torn,
tears which carry the weight of the world
will not suffice for
the fire that burns inside of them.

seventeen hundred,
martyred on the plains of Tikrit
and no sympathy from the world
as it turns a blind eye
to the life of an Iraqi.
