When it was released in 2013, ‘Days Are Gone’ became a huge hit on Tumblr and did the rounds alongside other LPs such as The 1975’s own, Lorde’s ‘Pure Heroine’ and ‘Born To Die’ and ‘Ultraviolence’ by Lana. Rey on the blog site.
The album reached number one on the UK charts and number two on the Billboard Top Alternative Rock Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It also peaked at number six on the Billboard 200 chart.
Speaking to NME about the influence and success of the LP, Alana explained: “The crazy thing about ‘Days Are Gone’ is that the first thing we put out was the ‘Forever’ EP and we put it on the internet without knowing how. . promote things.”
He continued: “We didn’t know how to put the music out there. All we knew was that we were very proud of what we had created after six years as a group. We had got a record end of what we loved, and It was like, ‘Wow. , we found this. What do we do with it? So we put it on the internet without thinking about what was going to happen. And it changed our lives fully.”
The band also shared that even though it has been ten years since the release of “Days Are Gone”, the album still resonated with them in a new way.
“A lot of the songs we wrote in our twenties mean something different to us now that we’re thirty. I don’t know if we’re any wiser, though,” says Este.

The band also recently reflected on their experience with The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas during the early days of his career.
“Playing with Julian taught us a lot as well and he taught me a lot. Playing some Strokes songs on set, like ‘Automatic Stop’, I couldn’t believe it. I was there because I can’t believe that this is my life.” Danielle shared.
