Fans of The 1975 who have been in panic mode over the past few days, there’s no need to worry anymore because the band, and their members’, social media accounts have been reactivated.
For those not familiar with what has been going on, it all started when frontman Matt Healy posted a cryptic comic strip online hinting at a “good-bye.” Even though the English band had been hinting at a new record for months, some started to get concerned that it was the end of the group.
Then, on Sunday (May 31), all their social media accounts disappeared and no one could figure out what led to it. Of course, the rumors began all over again that the band had disbanded without anyone knowing.
But today (June 2), all their social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) were back with one noticeable difference; the band’s logo had changed color.
The logo, which once was black and white, is now white and pastel pink.
Looking back at the comic Healy posted, it appears the good-bye he was hinting at was for the band, but them saying good-bye to their old logo.
As of now, there’s a still a major rumor running around Facebook that the band will be changing their name, but considering the logo still says “The 1975,” we’re sure that’s just a rumor.
For now, let’s give the guys of The 1975 some major kudos for stirring the publicity pot because they definitely did make an impression on a lot of people (and music news publications) with this stunt.
