English alt-rockers The 1975 are set to head stateside this spring for a tour that will bring the Manchester natives to Bethlehem.

The group will perform 8 p.m. May 12 at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center, officials announced Monday in a news release.

Tickets cost $39 and go on sale Friday through sandseventcenter.com and ticketmaster.com. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 800-745-3000 and at the box office, 77 Sands Blvd.

The 1975 dropped their self-titled debut album in 2013. They followed it up in February 2016 with the release of their sophomore studio effort, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It. The latter album includes the singles "Love Me" and "Somebody Else."
