BEST WELL-KEPT SECRET IN PORTUGAL = TRAVO
It’s not a surprise to say that the small bottom-left corner of Europe which is Portugal is a gold mine, full of awesome bands making crazy noise and just waiting to be discovered. And Travo is not simply one of them. Travo is probably the best well-kept secret of their country, but do not worry as you’re about to know more about them… They’re putting out their new album »Astromorph God« on November 17 via gig.Rocks! and Spinda Records, with a first single »Turn To The Sun« being aired on September 22.
Hailing from the soul-stirring city of Braga in Portugal, Travo is a relentless 4-piece powerhouse, commanding attention with their unique fusion of high-octane heavy psych, prog-rock, thrash-metal and an unapologetic in-your-face garage rock attitude. »Turn To The Sun« is coming out on September 22 as first single of their upcoming studio album »Astromorph God«.

After self-releasing the EP »n’O SILO« (2018) and their debut album »Ano Luz« (2019), the band signed by Braga-based label gig.Rocks! (Gator, the alligator; Madmess; Unsafe Space Garden), putting out their sophomore studio album »Sinking Creation« in 2022. This release placed Travo on the forefront of the Portuguese scene, allowing the band also to start touring Europe. »Sinking Creation« birthed a revolution of raw, unadulterated sound that they`ve since wielded like a sonic weapon, becoming favorite for fans of King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Osees, Slift, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Wine Lips or Elder.
Travo’s unmistakable essence is forged at their live shows, where boundaries between reality and collective ecstasy blur. Their live performances transcend mere concerts; they’re volcanic eruptions of rock and roll energy; captivating the audience with intense rhythm bases, guttural cries and electrifying guitar riffs, making every date a visceral experience, a testament to their ethos.
In a time when authenticity is a rarity, Travo is a blazing comet of unapologetic sound. For their upcoming album »Astromorph God« – out on November 17 – gig.Rocks! join forces with Andalusian indie label Spinda Records (Moura, Fin del Mundo, Maragda, Bismut) for global distribution, to put out an album in which the band promises to redefine their sonic frontiers yet again.
