Portugal. The Man Announce New Album, Tour

Alaska's Portugal. The Man will do nothing to dispel their well-earned labels as prolific tour addicts in 2010. The band is set to head back on tour with the support of, excellent live act, Port O'Brien and The Dig. In addition to a string of dates, starting February 24th in Fargo, the band has announced plans to release a new album shortly, called American Ghetto. According to the band, the album is for the fans - and will not be releasing it early to press (damn!) or radio. Instead, they will be releasing the album as soon as it is finished (tba) to everyone on the same day. Head over to their site and pick up a free tour sampler of music from all three bands. As they proved to us last year at Schubas, they are a must-see live band that will blow your mind. We have a rule around here about seeing a band twice before calling them 'must-see'... but they were good enough to make us break that rule without hesitation. We will definitely be there for the February 26th show to report on the festivities.
