The multi-platinum album from Scottish rock band Travis, The Invisible Band, is set to be re-issued to celebrate its 20th Anniversary. The deluxe edition features the original album remastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Emily Lazar, all the original B-sides and a selection of completely unreleased demos, live sessions and alternate takes will also be included.

The band has also announced The Invisible Band in Concert tour across the United Kingdom in May 2022. This marks the first time the seminal album will be played in full, plus material from 2020’s 10 Songs and more from the group’s extensive catalogue of hits.

Front man Fran Healy says, “The Invisible Band is 20!! I hadn’t listened to the whole album for a while. It’s a lovely piece of work from the big singles like Sing and Flowers In The Window to Afterglow and Last Train. It sounds great at 20! We’re also taking it on the road. We’re really looking forward to playing live again.”

Now certified nine times Platinum in the United Kingdom, The Man Who’s success may have seemed impossible to build upon, but when it came to crafting a follow-up, Travis’ natural composure became their greatest asset.

Andy Dunlop (guitar) recalls, “Making the first post-success album is never going to be easy. Suddenly pressures and expectations sit on the shoulders of an already creatively challenging process. But things shouldn’t be easy, and all the best things very rarely are.”
