Ernie Ball artist The 1975 took home two coveted awards at last night’s 2019 Brit Awards. The Manchester natives took home top honors with best British group and album of the year for their 2018 release, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. In their acceptance speech, the band said they were “humbled” to beat fellow nominees Anne-Marie, Arctic Monkeys and George Ezra.
The event, held at London’s O2 arena, boasted performances from some of the biggest British acts, such as Calvin Harris, Little Mix and Jess Glynne. Other winners of the night included George Ezra and Jorja Smith, who won best male and female respectively. Check out the full list of winners here.
The band is gearing up for their North American tour kicking off at Mexico City’s Vive Latino festival on March 16. Their fourth studio album is expected to release this summer titled, Notes on a Conditional Form. Manager Jamie Oborne hinted on Twitter that fans may expect to hear the first single by the end of February.
