After announcing their participation at Uma Noite Irreversível, Festival NOVO and Monkey Week, the Portuguese band Travo publishes on Friday 22nd September at midnight »Turn To The Sun«, the first single of their upcoming new album »Astromorph God«. Heavy psych, progressive rock and tons of garage attitude is what it’s about.

Listen to »Turn To The Sun« HERE!

It’s said that Travo is one of Portugal’s best kept secrets and it’s looks like it’s true. They’re young; they’ve already published two albums and one EP (and a the new one »Astromorph God« which is on its way); and their live shows a real joy of head-banging, crowd-surfing and mosh pits. In their music you can find a fusion of heavy psych, progressive rock and trash-metal, with a significant garage attitude, without any type of filter. Yes, Europe is about to explode, with bands such as Slift, Maragda, Gator The Alligator, Kamggarn and, of course, Travo. It’s clear that on this side of the Atlantic Ocean there are thousands of fans of bands such as King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Osees, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Elder, Wine Lips and Frankie And The Witch Fingers.

Their new song »Turn To The Sun« will be available on main streaming services on Friday 22nd September at midnight although its official video will be premiere during the morning by RockZone (SP), Irreversível (PT), Idioteq (PO) and Stoner Hive (NL). »Turn To The Sun« is the first single of their fourth studio reference »Astromorph God«. And although this new album by David Ferreira (bass, guitar), Gonçalo Carneiro (guitars, synths, percussion), Nuno Gonçalves (drums, percusssion) and Gonçalo Ferreira (vocals, guitars, percussion, piano) won’t see the light until 17 November, it can be pre-ordered from Friday at midnight on both compact disc and vinyl editions through Spinda Records and gig.Rocks!, Spanish-Portuguese alliance under which this album will be out.
