It was co-produced by Mike Crossey, who has previously worked with Arctic Monkeys and Foals. The band were selling out shows even before the debut of their full length as Healy recalls in an interview with "The AU review". The lead single promoting the album is a re-worked version of "Sex", which was released on 26 August 2013. The song premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on 8 July 2013, and a music video was released onto YouTube on 26 July 2013. The 1975 debuted at no. 1 on the UK Albums Chart.

The 1975 toured in the UK in September 2013, among others performing in Kingston upon Hull as headliners at Freedom Festival, a celebration of the city's shortlisting for 2017 UK City of Culture designation,[18] and at iTunes Festival on 8 September 2013 as an opening act for indie electronic quartet Bastille.

The band undertook a North American tour in October 2013, a European for November 2013, and in January 2014 the band performed in New Zealand and Australia. In September 2013, the band performed three sold out shows at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire. In April 2014, the band performed for the first time in a major American music and arts festival, Coachella. The band played at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2014.
