Travis Biography - Returning to 'Sing' Once Again
The group originally came together in Glasgow and consisted of friends Francis Healy, Andy Dunlop, Neil Primrose and Dougie Payne, who were all studying at art college in 1990. Whilst the band started as a project just for fun, the quartet decided to take it more seriously after graduation, having gradually started to accumulate a fan following. They recorded their debut album Good Feeling in just a few days with producer Steve Lilywhite, and achieved five top 40 hits from the release. Their chart success would continue to grow in the next few years, riding on the wave of Britpop popularity so prominent in the late '90s. Seminal album The Man Who spawned iconic singles 'Why Does it Always Rain on Me?' and 'Writing to Reach You', and the band enjoyed a status as one of the country's biggest live draws.
By 2000, they were touring with the likes of Oasis and Dido, and had secured a number one spot on the UK album charts with third release The Invisible Band. Singles 'Sing' and 'Flowers in the Window' became some of their greatest hits to date and led to them winning the Brit Award for Best British Band. The next couple of years would see the band take a break after drummer Neil Primrose broke his neck in a swimming pool accident, but he recovered and they made their comeback in 2007 with album The Boy With No Name, co-produced with Brian Eno. Following this only a year later came Ode to J. Smith, which many critics believe is their best record yet, earning a spot in Q Magazine Readers' Best Albums of 2008. After another short break, Where You Stand was released in 2013, proving another chart success in the UK and across Europe. With new material on the way, along with two exclusive live dates in London in early 2016, make sure you grab your Travis tickets now on StubHub to make sure you don't miss out.
