The 1975 have quashed split rumours by announcing a new tour and revealing they are working on their second album

The 1975 have quashed split rumours by announcing a new tour and album.

The 'Chocolate' hitmakers sparked speculation they had broken up after posting a cryptic message on Twitter earlier this week saying "we are already gone" before deactivating their social media accounts, but have now returned by saying they are working on their second LP.

In a letter posted to the group's reactivated Twitter account, frontman Matt Healy wrote: "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."

The band - also featuring Adam Hann, George Daniel, and Ross MacDonald - gained celebrity fans in Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez after the release of their eponymous debut in 2013, and said the positive reaction to the record has inspired them to start "a new chapter".

He continued: "We simply couldn't have imagined connecting with as many people as we have since the release of our debut in 2013.This is the beginning of a new chapter for The 1975. Our new record signifies the start of a new world for us."

In the note, the group also announced a 16-date UK tour for November 2015, adding they are excited to get back on the road playing "HUGE shows (sic)".

They wrote: "We want to play shows, we want a real shared experience, we want to play HUGE shows that we never thought were possible, and we want to play festivals that people talk about for ages 'cos it was fun and it was music and the weather was perfect, and we want to be honest otherwise what's the f**king point? (sic)."
