Limited Edition CD/DVD featuring two bonus audio tracks 'Anniversary' and 'Parallell Lines'. Bonus DVD including videos for Another Guy, Where We Stand, Moving and the Making Of The Album: Where You Stand. Sounding and looking more invigorated than ever, the Scottish band, with "Super Swede" Michael Ilbert (The Hives/The Cardigans/The Wannadies) on production duties, are now back after a five year hiatus with the follow-up to 2008's 'Ode to J. Smith'. The album was written and recorded across London, Norway, New York, and took in a production stint at Berlin's legendary Hansa Studios. This was enjoyed particularly by the band's Bowie-fanatic Dougie Payne, who revelled in layering the famous synthesisers of 'Low' fame onto 'Different Room'.

There are touches of innovation on this album, but you could easily play this in shuffle mode with The Invisible Band, The Man Who, and The Band With No Name, and you wouldn't lose any sense of the Travis style.
You could argue that a band that has stayed largely unchanged in terms of style is a band standing still, but when the melodies and arrangements are this beautiful, I think any Travis fan would be disappointed if it didn't sound "just like Travis".
Like an old friend you haven't seen in a while, you want them to be as good as you remember. Thankfully, Travis have grown old gracefully, and this album is proof that you can't have too much of a good thing.
In one word? - Mellow.
It's been a protracted five year hiatus since the unequivocally disappointing Ode to J. Smith. Since then Fran Healy et al. have gone back to the drawing-board. 'Where You Stand' is a return to form that will be warmly welcomed by their loyal and devoted followers.
In 1999, Travis' second album The Man Who sold (a now unimaginable) 3 million records. It is no coincidence that the artwork of their latest offering returns to the desolate horizon and familiar typography. Juxtapose this with the artwork of Ode to J. Smith and you can understand why, on the surface, Travis fell astray a little. Whilst this is all clearly symbolic its strikingly apparent that these differences are symptomatic of the music itself too. In 'Where You Stand' Travis return to the mid-tempo ballads and melodious radio-friendly pop but with a synth driven tint applied by new producer Michael Ilbert. Spearheaded by the boyish Fran Healy, the band remain tender and never shy of exposing their soft underbelly and lyrically the album is unambiguously simple but honest.
'Where You Stand' will not recapture the accolades that showered 'The Man Who' but instead recapture the underrated cult sound with inoffensive melody that brought the loyal fans back to their music time and time again.
