Travis

Formed in 1990, Scottish rock band Travis have enjoyed international music success across an incredible 25 year career.

Travis released their debut album Good Feeling in 1997 which reached a very respectable ninth place in the UK album charts. The band then went on to release their second album, The Man Who (1999), which spent nine weeks at number one and sold over 2.6 million copies in the UK alone! Following this, Travis released their third album, The Invisible Band (2001), which went on to match the success of their previous album, with four weeks at the top of the UK album charts. Travis have twice been awarded Best Band at the BRIT Awards, as well as being awarded the NME Artist of the Year award in 2000.

Travis put on a unbelievable show for their fans and will be performing a mixture of their classic hits, as well as songs from their latest album ‘Everything at Once’, on the eve of the 2017 FORMULA 1 BRITISH GRAND PRIX weekend.

Melody has always been king for Travis. It’s where it all starts and where it all ends up, with someone singing along to a song on the radio…

About Travis

Travis is a Scottish rock band formed in Glasgow in 1990, composed of Fran Healy (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Dougie Payne (bass guitar, backing vocals), Andy Dunlop (lead guitar, banjo, backing vocals) and Neil Primrose (drums, percussion). The band’s name comes from the Harry Dean Stanton character Travis Henderson from the film Paris, Texas.

The band released their debut album, Good Feeling to great success in 1997 where it reached number nine in the UK Albums Charts. The band went on to achieve greater international triumph with their second album, The Man Who (1999) which spent nine weeks at number one in the UK Album Charts, totaling one-hundred and thirty-four weeks in the UK Top 100. In 2003, The Man Who was certified 9x platinum by the BPI and sold over 2.68 million copies in the UK alone! Following this, the band released their third album, The Invisible Band (2001). The Invisible Band went on to match the success found with their previous album and spent four weeks at number one and a total of fifty-five weeks in the top one-hundred chart.

Travis have twice been awarded Best Band at the BRIT Awards and were also crowned the NME Artist of the Year award in 2000.

“Even back in Glasgow,” Healy reminisces, “we were never part of all the bands that were kicking about. We were always on the perimeter, on the outside looking in. And, once in London, we were on the periphery of Britpop. We weren’t really part of it. We’re kind of outsiders, and we always have been.” Dunlop confirms the sentiment. “The great thing about being in Travis,” he says, “is that I feel, even at our most popular point, we never really fitted in. So there’s never really been that longing to adjust to anything culturally. It’s much nicer to follow your own path and grow naturally than to engineer yourself to whatever the current climate dictates.”

That path took Travis from the acclaimed, rocky sounds of 1997’s Good Feeling to the unexpected success of The Man Who, an album initially dismissed by critics but which wormed its way into the world’s hearts, helped by a memorable appearance at Glastonbury, when the heavens opened to greet the evergreen ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me’. The Invisible Band matched this success, while 2003’s rather darker 12 Memories was even lauded by Elton John.

Travis took a five year break before the release of Where You Stand, though not, Healy says, to preserve a friendship that he considers “unbreakable”, but to ensure the existence of the band itself. Indeed, Dunlop says the very thing that has kept them together is, quite literally, “time apart”. In fact, they now live in different cities: Healy’s based in Berlin, Dunlop in Liverpool, Primrose in the Lake District, while Payne divides his time between New York and Glasgow. But with typical unfussiness, they returned to the fray in a low-key fashion, self-releasing Where You Stand with just a VHS quality video – directed by Wolfgang ‘Good Bye Lenin’ Becker – to promote it. The album felt, in many ways, like a fresh start, a rawer, less polished recording that signalled the beginning of what might be seen as the band’s second chapter or, as Dunlop puts it, “a fresh lap in the band’s journey”.

Discography

In recent years, the band’s discography has included studio albums 12 Memories (2003), The Boy with No Name (2007), Ode to J. Smith (2008), Where You Stand (2013) and more recently Everything at Once (2016), which debuted at number five on the UK Album Charts.

In 2004, the band released their first greatest hits album, Singles which spent nineteen weeks in the UK top 100 album charts.

Latest Release – ‘Everything at Once’

Everything At Once positively overflows with conviction and confidence, the sound of a band once again locating their special chemistry and relishing it. But, at less than 33 minutes long, it’s unusually succinct, consciously purged of anything ostentatious or frivolous. Instead, seven of its ten songs – and the other three can hardly be considered decadent – are bold enough to sweep in and out of your life within three minutes.

Characterised by Travis’ idiosyncratic blend of optimism and melancholy, sentiment and temperance – plus, above all, unforgettable melodies – songs like the uplifting ‘What Will Come’, the celebratory ‘Magnificent Time’ (a co-write with Keane’s Tim Rice-Oxley) and the galloping title track, as much as the gorgeous ‘Idlewild’ (Healy’s first duet, recorded with Josephine Oniyama), the aching ‘Strangers On A Train’, the comforting ‘3 Miles High’, and the wry ‘Paralysed’ (with backing vocals by opera singer Alfie Boe), prove that Travis remain one of our most precious musical treasures. Much like the group that wrote them – one that once knowingly entitled an album The Invisible Band – these songs appear unassuming, and yet they endure longer than anyone might ever expect. Their success is unquestionable, but any explanation is elusive. That’s the magic that makes up Travis.

Everything At Once is an intricately detailed, deceptively simple collection of classic Travis, distilled to its very essence.”
