Travis isn’t a singular person. They’re actually four people in a band who will soon have seven studio albums under their belt.
Glasglow, Scotland is home to the four members who make up Travis; consisting of Fran Healy, Douglas Payne, Neil Primrose, and Andy Dunlop, the band formed in 1997. With countless awards, including two BRITs, being called “the cornerstone for the Britpop era,” and inspiring big ol’ rock bands like Coldplay, the band is set to release their seventh studio album, titled Where You Stand, on August 19, and it’s safe to say Travis is still going strong.
A new album is not the only thing in the works for Travis. The band is currently playing random shows across the UK and will make their way across the pond for a US tour in the fall. Travis recently added a DC date to their itinerary and will be playing at the Lincoln Theatre on September 20. Tickets officially go on sale this Friday, July 12, but we’re giving away a pair before they go on sale!
Travis recently released a video for “Moving,” the second single to come from their upcoming album. The video is said to have been made without the use of post production. Rather, according to the video description, “animations were projected on the band’s breath in real time.”
So, what can you do to score a pair of tickets to see Travis at the Lincoln Theatre on September 20 before they even go on sale?
To win before you can buy, drop a comment in the box below naming any track from Travis’ seven studio albums that you would like to hear the band perform on tour. I like the song “Another Guy” from the new LP.
The winner will be chosen at 9AM on Friday, July 12, before tickets are available to the public. If you don’t win from us, tickets will be available for purchase at 10am that day.
