Glasgow band Travis have announced an international tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary re-issue of their breakthrough album, ‘The Invisible Man’.

The band revealed on Instagram they were releasing a deluxe album box set as well as American and UK tour dates, with the album featuring unheard demos, live sessions and alternate takes of your favourite songs on the album.

Frontman Fran Healy said: “‘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!”
