Travis announce Turin Brakes as support for The Man Who June UK tour (2018)


Story by Jack Foley

TRAVIS have announced that Turin Brakes will support them when they play their classic album The Man Who live in fill this June (2018).

School friends Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian formed Turin Brakes in Balham South London and went onto release Mercury Music Prize nominated debut album The Optimist in 2001, followed by Ether Song in 2003, which featured the top 5 hit single Pain Killer (Summer Rain).

After an impressive 17 years together, seven studio albums and over a million records sold worldwide, the band released their eighth studio album Invisible Storm earlier this year to much acclaim.

Released 19 years ago, The Man Who became one of the most successful British albums of the last 20 years, spawning the timeless singles, Writing To Reach You, Driftwood, Turn and, possibly the band’s most iconic song, Why Does It Always Rain On Me?

Travis will perform a handful of special venues over the course of the year, including London’s Royal Festival Hall (June 12 & 13) and the Glasgow SSE Hydro (December 21), with tickets now on sale.
