The 1975 have wiped their socials and we all know what that means

We're (probably, possibly, hopefully) just days away from The 1975's Music For Cars era - they've done an XXL bunch of teasing over the weekend.

The Manchester crew have also wiped their band and personal social accounts, and blacked out their official website - the last time they pulled a stunt like this we were all treated to the start of their I like it when you sleep... chapter.

Over the weekend posters started popping up around London, hinting at something with a timeline and the initials of upcoming album Music For Cars:

And then after those got spotted the band threw up some kinda manifesto on their social accounts:

Fans, understandably, jolted up into fifth gear to try and figure out what was going on - some reckon lyrics, which certainly seems plausible.

The poster also includes a catalogue number from label Dirty Hit - DH00327 - which seems to indicate a release is lined up for sooner rather than later. 1 June, perhaps?

We've still not had that much-teased What A Shame EP, and a rumoured release date for Music For Cars has been and gone - so who really knows when it all kicks off? Well, manager Jamie Oborne has some clue, at least:

Healy told us a while back that they were definitely working on the next record, and he's since said that the band plans to release new music in the near future. The 1975's Mercury-nominated second record was released in 2016.
