On Tuesday, the band The 1975 held a press conference to announce a new EP.
The band’s previous record, 2009’s ‘The Last of the Summer Sisters,’ was one of the most anticipated releases of 2016.
The new album, titled ‘Avenging Angel,’ was released on February 25.
The announcement was met with mixed reviews.
While the record was generally praised for its beautiful melodies and haunting vocals, some critics were more critical.
While most reviews were favorable, a review by Pitchfork called the record “a middling affair,” calling it “a more traditional-sounding, albeit better-produced album.”
This review was the third time the band has released a new record in the last few years.
The 1975 is known for their dark and gritty sound, which includes heavy riffs and a heavier, darker feel.
The group’s latest release, ‘The Calling,’ is their fourth studio album, and the band is currently touring in support of it.
The album was released in September and it was the band’s first album to not feature the band in its entirety.
“We’re just really excited to share with the world this new record, which was written and recorded entirely in Los Angeles, with a lot of our members here in Los Angles,” The 1975’s guitarist and singer David Van Patten told Rolling Stone.
“The first time we did it, it was just an acoustic acoustic, we had to make a whole new song.
So we decided to try it this time, and we’re really excited about it.
It’s definitely more of a traditional rock album, but it’s also more of the soulful, atmospheric rock that we’ve always been really into.”
The 1975 were nominated for the Grammy Award for Best New Artist for ‘Aquarium.’
