What is it about Portugal. The Man that makes them stand out, that separates them from every other rock band??
Is it due to an unconventional upbringing in the magical and menacing tundra of the Land of the Northern Lights? Maybe it has something to do with their visceral live shows, their effortless ability to create concert experiences that differ wildly from night to night. Or perhaps it’s due to the bond they actively forge with their ever-growing fan base evidenced by their showing up to in-store signings, radio stations or interviews with personalized paintings for their supporters. In other words, Portugal. The Man isn’t a band, it’s a movement and a force this strong could only be born out of a place as icy and isolated as Wasila, Alaska.
The band’s first two albums – Waiter: You Vultures! and Church Mouth – were released via Fearless Records, with their latest album In The Mountain In The Cloud released on Atlantic Records. Portugal. The Man has already shared the stage with Throwing Muses, Grizzly Bear, mewithoutYou, Circa Survive, Fear Before The March Of Flames and Fall Of Troy, as well as festival performances at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. Portugal. The Man has transcended the restrictions of scenes and eras to create music that’s unparalleled in its ambition and uniqueness.
