Show Preview: Travis, Rathborne @ House of Blues Sunday October 6, 2013

It has been five years since Scottish alternative rockers Travis released their last record. Solo projects have kept lead singer Fran Healy busy during this time, so it is great to welcome the band back (so to speak) with their seventh studio album, Where You Stand, released in August. Bands take career breaks for many reasons, but this one seems to have worked well for Travis. Being together for over twenty years certainly has its fair shares of highs and lows, so the new album is really a reflection on the past with a firm grasp on the future direction of the group. No doubt this will be the focal point of their live show, with songs from previous albums added to the set. The last time I saw Travis perform, they entered the room to the triumphant music of Rocky. Fittingly, this is a band that has endured its inner battles, yet seems to be fresh and ready for the next chapter in their career. This promises to be one great night of music for fans of this great band.

Luke Rathborne, a New York based musician, will be opening the show. His preview can be found here.

Tickets for Travis with special guest Rathborne this Sunday at the House of Blues can be purchased here.
