Travis have announced that they will premiere new documentary, ‘Almost Fashionable – A Film About Travis’, at this year’s Edinburgh Film Festival.

Journalist Wyndham Wallace fronts the film. He interviewed fans of the band at shows in Mexico in 2016, with cameraman Cristian Pirjol in tow. And his questions were genuinely curious about why people like the band.

Travis frontman Fran Healey explains: “Wyndham is a very charming man and a very good writer but, mostly the reason he was there covering our trip was because he wasn’t the biggest fan of the band. I thought a documentary from this unusual angle would be a lot more interesting than one from a journalist who was a fan. As it turns out, I was right”.

There will be two screenings of the film at EIFF in June. Find out more and watch the trailer here.
