Travo is one of Portugal’s best kept secrets in Portugal and the band is about to drop the official animated video for the second single »Faceless Ghoul« from highly anticipated studio album »Astromorph God«. It’s happening on Friday, October 27, and it shouldn’t be missed out by any fan of psychedelia, garage and prog rock.
Travo, the rock band that has been pushing the boundaries of musical experimentation in Portugal, is thrilled to announce the release of their second single »Faceless Ghoul«, from their forthcoming studio album »Astromorph God«. Known for their crazy live shows in which head-banging, crowd-surfing and moh-pits are very usual and for their powerful blend of neo-psychedelia, garage, prog rock and even traces of trash-metal, Travo is set to expand their music around the globe.

After putting out the EP »n’O SILO« (2018, self-released), the albums »Ano Luz« (2019, self-released) and »Sinking Creation« (2022, gig.Rocks!) and the acclaimed first video-single »Turn To The Sun« of their new studio album »Astromorph God«, the band comes now with »Faceless Ghoul« (available on all streaming platforms in October, 27 at midnight) and an incredible animated video created by Álvaro Reis and Miguel Lobo. This new song is a real sonic odyssey through the band’s distinct soundscape, offering fans an enciting glimpse into what their upcoming album has to offer. The single showcases Travo’s signature fusion of mind-benging instrumental prowess, throught-provoking lyrics, and an atmosphere reminiscent of bands such as Maragda, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Osees, Slift, Wine Lips or Frankie And The Witch Fingers. It’s a compelling example of Travo’s ability to merge multiple genres into an electrifying experience.
»Astromorph God« is set to be released through Spinda Records (SP) in collaboration with gig.Rocks! (PT) on November 17. The band’s third studio album will be available on digital, compact disc, and a limited double-edition gatefold vinyl format, with only 300 copies available in couple of unique color variants (black and turquoise). Fans can already preorder the album via the label’s websites to ensure they’re among the first to experience the sonic journey that Travo has crafted.
The band on the creation of the album to a recent interview:
“[…] we aimed for something heavier, faster, more psychedelic and with more jamming moments […] we decided to make each song a chapter in a fantasy saga about five mystical stones hidden in five different castles and guarded by five creatures […]”
