Travis are pleased to announce the details of their new single ‘Re-Offender’, a poignantly beautiful love song about being trapped in a brutal relationship.
This is the first single to be taken from their much-anticipated fourth album and the band’s first release since 2001's landmark LP "The Invisible Band”. “Re-Offender” has been produced by the band and Tchad Blake.
In the past, Travis have addressed the politics of relationships, love and life itself, but now they direct their sights at both domestic and global concerns. Travis do not claim to be the experts, but with all the significant World events which have dominated everyone's minds since they last put pen to paper for the Invisible Band, Travis believe they have the responsibility to document injustice, it would be almost impossible to ignore it.
As a direct response to going on anti-war marches in London and Glasgow, Fran recently contributed an acoustic version of the track "The Beautiful Occupation" to the War Child album "Hope", released to raise awareness and funds for the innocent victims of the war in Iraq.
Almost a year on from drummer Neil Primrose's horrific accident in France, the band are once more back playing live. June saw the band play an intimate show in Blackburn and the following night witness a triumphant return to Scotland and Edinburgh's Usher Hall in aid of the famine relief charity Concern. The band debuted four new songs at the show including Re-Offender and Definition of Wrong.
