TRAVEGA

BandRockAlternative

Travega are an independent Irish band. Obviously given that Garth "GGG" Richardson produced Nickelback, Biffy Clyro, etc in the past and their continued success in Ireland, the Irish media have been quick to compare Travega to Nickelback meets Greenday. Travega have just returned from Vancouver/NYC

Biography

Travega have just returned from Vancouver and NYC after a 4 month recording stint. Garth Richardson who had previously produced Biffy clyro, Rage against the machine, Nickelback etc was the man in charge.

Travega's recording debut came in the summer of 2005 as a 3 track E.P. produced by singer songwriter Declan O'Rourke (V2 records) and recorded by Robbie Sexton of "Blink". Sixteen months later, with a number of sell-out performances in Dublin including Whelans, The Village and Crawdaddy, Travega, now a sextet, released their debut single/E.P , "The People", in Ireland on 27th October 2006.

The single entered the Irish charts and remained there for a number of weeks. The promotion of the single was aided by live performances on Dublin’s 98FM, Spin 103.8FM, TG4, The City Channel, along with other regional radio stations around the country. The single was further promoted by a Peter Foot (Vico Films) directed video.

Following the debut release Travega embarked on an extensive Irish tour to further promote the single. Hotpress Magazine (Ireland premier music magazine) had this to say about "The People":
Good Irish hard rock has been a bit hard to come by, but this is a very,
very promising debut from the Dublin six piece. The arrangement is clever, and the extravagant keyboard flourishings are impressive. Phil Udell (Hotpress Magazine)

Currently the band are preparing themselves for the release and promotion of their debut album which was recorded at The Farm & The Armoury Studios in Vancouver and Soundtrax in NYC. Gggarth Richardson was the Producer and Ben Kaplan engineered. The lads and lady spent around ten weeks in Canada and then a month in New York with Josh Wilbur as it was being mixed and mastered.

The first single "Bullrun" has gone to radio and is a hit.

There is no date set yet for the release (Autumn 2008) but in the mean time Travega continue to gig to promote and perfect their art. Tour dates and tracks from the forth coming album are available on myspace.com/travega
