12 February 2012

Just spent the past week at the bottom of England at the studio of one Tim Rice Oxley of a band called Keane. It was a heady week. Much music played. Much wine drunk. We even sojourned to the infamous Beachy Head where many people take there own lives each year. While there we noticed some mobile clergy in a cool marked for business priest auto. They patrol the area looking for potential suiciders. Lots of little memorials there right at the edge of the country. Here is a pic of us in a classic band pose. That’s the thing with bands. If you are in one long enough, you naturally compose yourself so even casual shots look like Anton Corbijn himself has shot them…

    I’m so glad to see the four of you all back together again. It’s such a day brightener and I have to admit, as soon as I saw the picture, I was so excited I almost started crying. 😛 I can’t wait to hear your new album and, hopefully, I’ll be able to go to a couple of your gigs. Until then… <3 I love all four of you and I miss you so much.

  33. Ida says:

    Pozdrowienia z Polski. Kocham Was chłopaki! 🙂

  35. Fred says:

    Great to see you back together. Hope you’ll drop an album like “The boy with no name” (brilliant).
    Just a question: How can songs like “Last chance” or “Life and soul of the party” aren’t on an album? They are amazing and should be known by a wider audience.
    Cheers from France.

  36. Darío says:

    See you soon.

  39. Fran I’m testing out some old gear a bit of crumpled up tape in an 8 track, was deciding if i should get rid of it of it or not, so thought i’d do a wee cover of Humpty Dumpty love song and work with some digital also synths etc…

    Just live performances multitracked for a bit of crack!

    hope all’s well:

  44. Charles Henry says:

    Is there any news on the new Travis album.
    There’s been lots of speculation in the media as to when it might be released.
    I was listening to J Smith LP this week. Hadn’t played it for a while and it was magic. Keep writing those good songs Mr Healy.

  45. Katie says:

    Fraaaan! So glad to hear you’re working on a new album! We missed you guys! I wanna open a Travis Fan Club here in Romania, and I don’t really know the steps. I’m very serious about it, because there are many Travis fans here! 🙂 Much love from Romania, and we all hope you get to come here someday … I would be the happiest girl ever to have walked the face of the Earth 🙂

  46. Verónica Cabreira says:

    I listened to you this week at Porto student’s festival. You played a song that you dedicated to anyone who has a dream but I can’t remember the name of the song. Is it from the new album? Thanks, nice songs 🙂

  47. Vip Patel says:

    Hi Fran, Me and my friends came to see you in Dubai and have been wondering ever since. What did you lie about when you were 17? We really need an answer. My friend has OCD and ever since we had the conversation he can’t stop thinking about it and his OCD has gotten really bad. If you could give us an answer hopefully it would make him better. You would be doing him a big favor. Big Thanks your Dubai faithful

  48. Kai says:

    When will come to Chile again?

  49. Ian Walker says:

    Hello Travis.

    Please come back and play in Bangkok. I loved seeing you last time when you were supported by Simple Plan and you were much welcomed and are missed moreso.

    Looking forward to the new album!

    All the best.

    Ian (a Brit living in Bangkok).
