At first listen, "It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)" definitely catches my interest and I can’t wait for the full album to be released. As someone who is new to the 1975 and who’s always looking for new music, this is definitely a release I'm anticipating.

Dave Stephens made the announcement in a recent interview with Kerrang! following a tribute show for Kyle Pavone.
The band recently finished touring with Bullet For My Valentine amidst the devastating loss of the late vocalist and will not take the much needed off-time to process the past few months. “I think as of now, we need some time to navigate our grief,” says Stephen.
Pavone passed away on August 25 from an accidental overdose. WCAR has since set up the Kyle Pavone Foundation to honor the late singer’s life. As for the future of the group, vocalist Dave Stephens says that the band has no plans on ever replacing Pavone.
“We wrote those songs together and they’re still my songs as well, but it’s weird even for me singing his parts,” he says. “I’m sure it’s kind of strange to the fans and the band, but I can’t imagine how much more strange it would be to have someone else singing them permanently. We don’t ever want to add another member again, and at this point, we’re closer than ever. We wanna do our best to honour [him] and make him proud but never replace him. He definitely won’t be forgotten.”
