Our love for The 1975, Matty Healy and 5 Seconds of Summer knows no bounds, which is why we're cracking out the factor 50 and buying one of those LED sun lights to combat all this potential shade.

So back in May, Ashton Irwin of 5SOS fame took to Twitter to praise The 1975 for the help they've provided for up and coming bands, writing: "The 1975 have been so important for upcoming bands! So happy they exist, and are helping open the gateway for young bands."

It was very complimentary, we saw an unlikely bromance forming and were already printing t-shirts with their ship name on.

Which is why Matty's latest comments to MTV are q confusing, as he outlines how fans of The 1975 also like 5SOS, but that they're 'not a faddy band'. Wait, what?

He commented: "One of the things that I love about The 1975 is now I've realized that we're kind of this gateway band. Gateway bands used to exist, but they were normally shitty — you know, bands that straddled between the truly alternative scene and the mainstream market.

"A soft, easy band for the kids to transition from the Backstreet Boys to f—in' Cannibal Corpse or whatever it may be.

"With us, of course we're gonna get a lot of kids who were into, I don't know, 5 Seconds of Summer. And then they get inside and they realize: I can stay here. I can grow with this band. This isn't a faddy thing. This isn't the Backstreet Boys. You're not being told to like us."

So, shade or no shade? What do you reckon? Discuss with us @Sugarscape, y'all.
