Portugal. The Man Announce New Album In The Mountain In The Cloud Due Out July 19th | The Audio Perv
29 Apr
2011

Atlantic recording group Portugal. The Man has announced the upcoming release of their hugely anticipated label debut. “IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD” arrives in stores and at all DSPs on July 19th.

Produced by John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A.) with co-production from PTM lead singer/guitarist/songwriter John Gourley and longtime band producer Casey Bates, and mixed by Grammy Award winner Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Jeff Buckley), “IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD” marks the first recording to fully harness the Portland, Oregon-based band’s exhilarating live show (see attached tracklisting). From the dynamic opener “So American” to the sprawling vision of “Sleep Forever,” the album – Portugal. The Man’s sixth overall – captures a truly distinctive band evolving in real time, revealing their singular sonic vision in its purest and most powerful form thus far.

“IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD” is preceded by the first single, “Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now),” which can be heard now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JyZZIQC3v4. What’s more, the final in a series of album previews can be heard at www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CQbPc61RKI. All four album previews are available at Portugal.

Portugal. The Man will herald “IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD” with a wide-ranging North American tour, kicking off tonight, April 29th, at The Roseland Theater in the band’s own Portland, Oregon (see attached itinerary). The trek will then make stops across the continent, culminating at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee on June 11th. Advance tickets for most tour dates range from $12-$20. Accompanying PTM on the tour will be Telekinesis and Unknown Mortal Orchestra – for full details and ticket availability visit www.portugaltheman.com.

As if all that weren’t enough, Portugal. The Man will also bring their extraordinary live power to this year’s Lollapalooza. The venerable music festival is slated for August 5-7th at Chicago’s Grant Park.

Since their formation in 2005, Portugal. The Man has captured the attention of the American indie scene with their extraordinary amalgamation of electronic beats, complex melodies, and atmospheric post-rock soundscapes. Formed in Wasilla, Alaska by lead singer/guitarist/songwriter John Gourley before migrating south to the Pacific Northwest, the band proved as prolific as they were eclectic, releasing an album each year since their 2006 debut, “WAITER: ‘YOU VULTURES!’”

Each consecutive collection revealed the ongoing evolution of Portugal. The Man, from the cathartic hard rock of 2007’s “CHURCH MOUTH” and the theatrical pop psychedelia of 2008’s “CENSORED COLORS” to the sci-fi chamber-pop found on 2009’s “THE SATANIC SATANIST” and 2010’s “AMERICAN GHETTO.”

Portugal. The Man is John Gourley: vocals, guitar; Zachary Scott Carothers: bass, vocals; Jason Sechrist: drums; Ryan Neighbors: keys, vocals.
