Scottish rocker Fran Healy is to take a "vacation" from Travis so he can concentrate on recording his first solo album.
The Turn hitmaker reveals the bandmembers, who have released six studio albums together since their debut in 1997, will be taking a hiatus - but he insists they are not splitting up.
Healy says, "A solo record is definitely something I've thought about, and something I think I will probably do. But Travis doesn't stop. I don't think we will ever stop making records, so this will be like a vacation."
