Portugal. the Man announces short fall tour

Portugal. the Man’s tour schedule is already packed with stops around the world, but apparently those previously announced dates weren’t enough. On Monday (July 24), the Portland-founded band announced plans to hit the North American roads in the fall. The group’s upcoming fall tour will kick off on October 2 at the Castle Theatre in Bloomington, Illinois and wrap up less than a month later on Oct. 29 with an appearance at the Suwanee Hulaween 2017 music festival in Live Oak, Florida.

Lido, Maybird, and Cut Copy will open for Portugal. the Man throughout the tour with the exception of their Mexican tour stops, their music festival appearances, and a couple of random stops along the way. Tickets for the October tour dates will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 28. For more information about the tour, head on over to Portugal. the Man’s website here.

Portugal. the Man’s lengthy tour schedule is in support of the group’s recently released record, WOODSTOCK. WOODSTOCK was released back in June and reached the number 32 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, the number seven spot on Billboard‘s Top Rock Albums chart, and the number five spot on Billboard‘s Top Alternative Albums.

As for the band’s infectious lead single, “Feel it Still,” the song has stealthy made its way up the Hot Adult Contemporary chart as well as the Top 40 charts.

Portugal. The Man Released “Endangered Song” for Sumatran Tigers

sumatrantiger

Happy Earth Day, all!

While we shouldn’t designated just one day to celebrate the greatest that is Mother Nature and all that she gives us, today, according to all calendars and the internet is that one day.

In honor of Earth Day many people have gone out and done a couple of good things for the environment such as picking up garbage in their neighborhood, planting some seeds for flowers and trees and all that good stuff, but Portugal. The Man have done something else and released a song titled “Endangered Song.”

The song is all part of a campaign to bring awareness for the Sumatran Tiger and to help save the large feline. The band have made over 400 copies of the 7″ vinyl which is designed to degrade over a time. And just like the message to help keep the endangered tiger alive, the release also helps promote the message of keeping music alive.

For more about the Endangered Song campaign head on over to the official site sponsored by the Smithsonian National Zoological Park Conservation Biology Institute and listen to the song below.
