Performer Info

Portugal. The Man: Portugal. The Man has successfully brought back psychedelic rock to mainstream music, both through acclaimed festival tour dates and on albums like their latest major label debut, In the Mountain, In the Cloud. Portugal. The Man is also becoming well known for their diligent touring and recording schedule, having released 12 albums and EPs in the past six years. The band is also going on months worth of domestic and international tour dates in 2011, to the delight of fans who have come to expect this level of attention from these rising talents.

Portugal. The Man began as a side project for lead singer and guitarist John Gourley. The band began receiving widespread recognition after the release of their second album, Church Mouth, which afforded Portugal. The Man with their first headlining tour dates in the US and Europe. It was all down hill from there, as their next four albums would experience great reviews and a positive response from audiences. 2009's The Satanic Satanist received particular attention, as it was their first album to include pre-production and was praised for its sound.

Portugal. The Man's freshly released In the Mountain, In the Cloud marks the band's major label debut. Those critics that have heard the album in advance have already given it great reviews, and the fan hype has built to a fever pitch. Portugal. The Man has already been performing months worth of tour dates in 2011, and will continue to do so for months after the album's release. While there are too many concerts to name, the band will be traveling around the world, performing solo shows and at festivals until they end their 2011 tour dates on December 4.
