The 1975‘s frontman Matt Healy has admonished NME for not presenting the group with the ‘Worst Band’ prize which they…won at the publication’s award ceremony earlier this year.

“It’s just quite funny,” he told Digital Spy. “I never got that award, I was really annoyed. I don’t care but I suppose if you make the forthright decision to give someone an award on a negative basis then you should do it!”

“They didn’t give it to us and they didn’t even present it at the thing, Wolf Alice were gonna go up and pick it up for me. If the NME don’t like us that’s fine, I don’t really care.”

“I don’t really care and I think the NME don’t really care that much. It’s so over now, we’re from different worlds and, you know, the NME don’t slag us off, they had one pop at us with that award. They don’t slag us off, they just don’t seem to like us.”

The 1975 start a tour of the UK at the end of September, and move on to mainland Europe throughout October.
