Songkick took at look at the hardest working bands of 2014 ... to no one's surprise, The 1975 take top spot. You can check out a PDF will a bunch of the data and stats here.
The Manchester quartet arenít just the hardest working band of 2014. Their phenomenal efforts over the last 365 days have shot them to the top of the Songkick leaderboard, having played more shows and covered more ground within a calendar year than any other artist since 2010 (when we started crunching numbers). The 249724km travelled by the band, venue to venue, would take them two-thirds of the way to the moon. Which is little surprise, given they averaged a gig every 1.8 days. Unbelievable!

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! talks with Stereogum.
Once we started playing this year and we realized how good it was ó you know, having people from Rocket From The Crypt and International Noise Conspiracy in the band is pretty fucking cool ó it just felt like it would be an absolute and total shame if we donít make a record with this lineup. Obviously the last record was really me just raking myself over the coals emotionally, so I just really want to make a fun record ó something thatís just really fun to fucking play and go on tour with. That might not sound like something terribly ambitious, but I think it could be great.
