*with Portugal the Man

-We got a new guitarist that shreds.
-We will have new music for you to hear and buy in October. It will be the latter of the 2 records we’ve made this year.

For a band that benefits dramatically from the power-trio setup musically, this is an interesting turn of events and one that we think will likely expand their capabilities live and their songwriting prowess now that there’s more room for musicians on stage. I hope they don’t lose their ability to seamlessly segue into any of their tunes on a whim…
