Tuesday 22 March: Good news for Travis Oaks who have two big announcements to share.
Following the successful release of their debut EP in 2014, fans of the Cavan band wait no more, as a 6-track EP titled Black Light will be released on Friday 10th June 2016.
This coincides with the announcement that the band have signed their self-titled debut EP with Big House Publishing, a New York based independent company.
Fresh from supporting The Strypes at the sold out Olympia Theatre in January, Travis Oaks will have much more to celebrate come Wednesday 15 June, where the four-piece rock outfit will headline (main room) Whelans, Wexford Street.
Speaking about the worldwide deal, A&R of BHi Music Group Shane Galvin said: “We are thrilled to add Travis Oaks to the Big House family. We adore the wreckless abandon of their debut EP and believe they are poised for massive things in the very near future.”
Also commenting on the exciting new venture, frontman Mike Paterson said: “We’re obviously delighted to be working with Big House, this really exciting for us. In fact it’s an exciting step for any musician or songwriter. We’re looking forward to what the future holds.
Originally introduced as three piece band in 2013, Travis Oaks fast became known on the Irish music scene, when playing a number of festivals across the nation, despite no official release at the time.
Soon after the release of their self-titled debut EP in November 2014, not only did the Mike Paterson (vocals), Aran McGillick (bass), and Killian McCourt (drums) earn a new member in guitarist Taran Plouzane but also a well-earned reputation as one of the best live bands the current music scene has to offer.
Known for their wild, energetic, live performances that compliments their powerful, hook-driven original style of rock n’ roll – it is safe to say no two shows are the same when it comes to the Cavan/Dublin four-piece.
Travis Oaks have been invited to support big names such as The Riptide Movement, The Hot Sprockets , ASH and most recently The Strypes, at the sold out Olympia Theatre, one of Ireland’s biggest venues.
In as little as 3 years, Travis Oaks have reached an overwhelming status; playing major venues in Ireland, Northern Ireland, France, Scotland and UK, receiving national media attention, regular radio airplay and a loyal following.
With many already in high anticipation for a debut album, instead Travis Oaks continue to tease their fans in the form of a 6 track EP due for release this year, followed by a numbers of shows across Europe.
To coincide with a new release Travis Oaks have joined the Big House Publishing roster after a recent signing with the New York based company.
So yes, you can expect bigger things to come from Travis Oaks, the band you will never forget.
