What We Say
Portugal. The Man, Alaska’s sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom!
Portugal. The Man was formed in Wasilla (Alaska) in 2004 and currently consists of John Baldwin Gourley (vocals, guitar, organ, drum machines), Zachary Scott Carothers (bass guitar, backing vocals), Kyle O'Quin (keyboards, synthesizers, guitar, backing vocals), Eric Howk (guitar), Jason Sechrist (drums), and Zoe Manville. Their musical style can be best described as a blend of indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegazing), psychedelic rock (a style of rock music - inspired or influenced by psychedelic culture - that attempts to replicate and enhance the mind altering experiences of psychedelic drugs, most notably LSD, by using novelty recording techniques, electronic instruments or effects), and progressive rock (a broad subgenre of rock music that grew out of psychedelic bands who abandoned standard traditions in favour of instrumentation and compositional techniques more frequently associated with jazz, folk or classical music). They’ve had a stellar career with 7 studio albums, 1 split album (with The Satanic Satanist), 4 extended plays, and 11 singles. Their music has also been featured on the soundtrack of The Walking Dead (Volume 2).
