Travis announce new album ‘Where You Stand’
Travis, one of the UK’s best known bands, return after a five year hiatus with their seventh album ‘Where You Stand’, out August 19th on their own relaunched label Red Telephone Box via Kobalt Label Services.
Sounding and looking more invigorated than ever, the Scottish band, with “Super Swede” Michael Ilbert (The Hives/The Cardigans/The Wannadies) on production duties have delivered an album of effortless, melodic pop gems.
Written and recorded across London, Norway, New York, and taking in a production stint at Berlin’s legendary Hansa Studios (as enjoyed particularly by Bowie-fanatic Payne, who revelled in layering famous synthesisers of Low fame onto ‘Different Room’), the band ended up recording the songs on the same sound desk that produced both ‘Ok Computer’ and their own breakthrough ‘The Man Who’.
Watch the pre-single teaser for the upcoming album below:
With two No.1 LPs, five Top Ten singles, two Brit Awards and more than 8 million record sales Travis crafted songs which resonated throughout UK households, striking an emotional chord with hits such as ‘Turn’, ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me’ and ‘Sing’. ‘Where You Stand’ is the follow-up to their 2008 album ‘Ode to J. Smith’.
Travis are singer/guitarist Fran Healy, bassist Dougie Payne, guitarist Andy Dunlop and drummer Neil Primrose. Find out more on the Travis website.
