ACL is happy to announce a new taping on October 30 with indie rock act Portugal. The Man. The ultra-melodic quartet formed in Alaska, moving to the more rock-friendly environs of Portland and releasing its debut LP Waiter: “You Vultures!” in 2006. The prolific group proceeded to release five more records on various indie labels, including 2009’s companion albums The Satanic Satanist and The Majestic Majesty, before signing to Atlantic for 2011’s In the Mountain in the Cloud. Tours and performances at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza led up to the band’s latest record Evil Friends, produced by Danger Mouse (Norah Jones, the Black Keys, Gnarls Barkley). The album has been called “ the most quintessentially Portugal. The Man album the band has released” by Paste and “proof that some bands get big by being good, nothing else” by the Austin Chronicle.
We’re thrilled to welcome Portugal. The Man to its debut ACL taping. Keep an eye on our taping page, Facebook and Twitter for notification as to when passes will be available.
