Frontman Fran Healy says, ‘The Invisible Band is 20!! I hadn’t listened to the whole album for a while. It’s a lovely piece of work from the big singles like “Sing” and “Flowers in the Window” to “Afterglow” and “Last Train”. It sounds great at 20! We’re also taking it on the road. We’re really looking forward to playing live again’.
