The group, fronted by Matt Healy, shocked fans by hinting at a break-up in a cryptic message which was posted online over the weekend (30-31May15), shortly before the rockers deleted all their social media accounts.

However, they have now assured fans the stunt did not signal the end for the band by reviving their online presence and sharing a letter in which they reveal plans for a U.K. tour later this year (15) and a new album.

The note reads, "The 1975 are currently in production of our second full length record. Its creation signifies the end of the most inspiring and challenging time that we've ever shared as friends and as artists... This is the beginning of a new chapter for The 1975. Our new record signifies the start of a new world for us..."

The tour kicks off in Liverpool, England on 9 November (15).
