Portugal. The Man is an American psychedelic rock band based in Portland, but originally from Wasilla, Alaska. Portugal. The Man's debut record “Waiter: “You Vultures!” was released by Fearless Records in 2006. The album was produced by Casey Bates. In early 2007, Portugal. The Man self-released an EP entitled “It's Complicated Being a Wizard” on their own label, Approaching AIRballoons. Later in 2007, they released their second full-length, “Church Mouth,” again produced by Casey Bates. In 2008 the band left their label, Fearless Records. “Censored Colors” under its independent record label, Approaching AIRballoons, in partnership with Equal Vision Records, was released in 2008. “The Satanic Satanist,” was released in 2009. Originally named “The Satanic Satanist of the Majestic Majesty,” the album title was later shortened and an acoustic counterpart entitled “The Majestic Majesty” was released. “The Satanic Satanist” was themed around memories and stories from singer John Gourley's growing up in the state of Alaska. The album was recorded with the help of record producer Paul Q. Kolderie of Pixies and Radiohead fame. Prior to its official release the album leaked on the Internet. Gourley posted a note regarding the leak on the band's official website. The statement encouraged fans to download the album, but to also support the band and purchase the record upon release if enjoyed. The album reached #81 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. In 2010, “American Ghetto,” the bands fifth studio album, was released. In order to avoid another leak, virtually no copies of the album were solicited until the release date. In April 2010 the band announced their transfer to Atlantic Records. During the summer of 2010, Portugal. The Man went back into the studio to record their new album with guitarist and producer John Hill. They recorded the album in El Paso, Texas, London, England, and San Diego, California. Grammy winner Andy Wallace mixed the album, titled “In the Mountain in the Cloud,” which was released in 2011 and was their first for Atlantic Records. The album reached #42 on the Billboard 200 and #11 on the Alternative Albums chart.

There has to be some credit given at least for this band's name alone -- co-founder John Gourley once explained it as an attempt to create a demi-mythic entity bigger than the individual members. Whatever the exact origins of the name, Portugal. The Man came together in Alaska in the wake of the initial dissolution of Anatomy of a Ghost, with guitarist/vocalist Gourley and bassist/singer Zach Carothers continuing to work together. Portugal. The Man formed with the addition of keyboardist/singer Wes Hubbard, himself a veteran of other Alaska groups, leading to the three eventually relocating from Alaska to Portland, Oregon to record and perform. ~ Ned Raggett, Rovi

By now, the peripatetic trail etched out by Portugal. The Man is well documented. The band’s nomadic path snakes down the Cascades, starting first in Wasilla, Alaska (yes, the very same city whose identity has been hijacked by a certain celebrity politician, one who we shall not mention again here), and then eventually settling in amongst the puddles and monochromatic haze of Portland, Oregon. There were Iditarod-racing parents, wooden cabins tucked deep in the woods, and the sort of upbringing that skews the very notion of convention. But let us end that chapter of Portugal. The Man’s lore and move forward.
That is the Portugal. The Man of then, In The Mountain In The Cloud is the Portugal. The Man of now.
