The 1975 played NJ, made live debut of “Frail State of Mind” (videos, pics, setlist)
The 1975 are gearing up to release their new album Notes On A Conditional Form on February 21 via Interscope/Dirty Hit, and so far they've shared three songs off of it: the eponymous intro track (featuring Greta Thunberg), the punky "People," and the more chilled-out "Frail State of Mind." And as they prepare for that album's release, they're back in the US for a short tour that started at Camden, NJ's BB&T Pavilion on Saturday (11/16).
The show opened with the A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships version of their eponymous intro track playing over the PA, and then The 1975 -- including a Bauhaus-shirt-wearing Matty Healy -- kicked off the show with a bang, going right into "People," and proceeding to play tons of other faves like "Give Yourself A Try," "TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME," "She's American," "It's Not Living (If It's Not With You)," "Love Me," and more. This show included the live debut of "Frail State of Mind," and before the encore, they played the Notes On A Conditional Form version of their intro track, with Greta Thunberg's speech blasting over the PA and matching visuals on screen, and it got some of the loudest cheers of the night. Then the band returned for their millennial generation anthem -- and sometimes political -- "Love It If We Made It," after which Matty Healy yelled, "I hope you all vote for Bernie!"
Watch video of the live debut of "Frail State of Mind," and see other videos from the show and the full setlist below. Pictures are in the gallery above.
Two days before the NJ show (11/14), Matty Healy joined Dashboard Confessional on stage at London’s St Pancras Old Church to sing with him on The 1975's "Sex," which Dashboard covered for his 2017 covers EP. Watch that below too.
