Yes, they really are still going. No, of course they haven't gone dubstep. That's the headlines out of the way.

The small print is that Travis are still doing what Travis have always done: knocking out middle-of-the-road, mildly melancholic, Radio-2-friendly pop-rock. With just one crucial exception: there's no "Why Does it Always Rain on Me"-sized anthem on this, their seventh studio album. Which is why you wondered if they were still going.
