The 1975 wins best British Group & Album of the Year at 2019 BRIT Awards

The Brit Awards, sort of like the UK’s version of the Grammys, went down on Wednesday night (Feb. 20) at London’s O2 Arena and The 1975 took home some of the British Phonographic Industry’s most prestigious awards. The Manchester lads nabbed the Brit for best British Group and the coveted British Album of the Year for their latest record A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. The 1975 faced stout competition in both categories.

Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz, Years & Years and Little Mix competed against The 1975 for British Group while the pop-rockers toppled Florence + The Machine, Anne-Marie, George Ezra and Jorja Smith for British Album of the Year.

A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships arrived in November of 2018. The 1975 has released a number of interesting, interconnected videos for A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships tracks “102” (watch), “Sincerity is Scary” (watch) and "TooTimeTooTimeTooTime" (watch).

The 1975 embark on a spring tour of the States in 2019, including a stop at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre (tickets). Click here to browse AXS for tickets to select The 1975 U.S. dates.
