Scottish rock combo Travis' fourth album, 12 Memories, is slated for an October 14th release, two years after their last batch of new songs, The Invisible Band.
The eleven-track album was recorded in the band's native Scotland earlier this year and mixed by engineer Tchad Blake (Sheryl Crow, Tom Waits) at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England.
Memories' first single, "Re-Offender," addresses the issue of domestic violence. The band shot a video in Glasgow with photographer/director Anton Corbijn, which can be viewed at travisonline.com.
Track list for 12 Memories:
The Beautiful Occupation
Peace the Fuck Out
How Many Hearts
Love Will Come Through
Happy to Hang Around
