TRAVIS, one of the UK’s best known bands, return after a five year hiatus with a brand new album and tour. They will make a very welcomed return to the Olympia Theatre on October 21st.
‘Where You Stand’ will be the band's seventh album, it is due for release this August on their own re-launched 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 ‘A Different Room’), the band ended up recording the songs on the same sound desk that produced both ‘Ok Computer’ and their own breakthrough album ‘The Man Who’.
