Woodstock: A Concept Album
Named after the legendary Woodstock Music Festival of the 1960’s, this album is Portugal. The Man’s attempt at an album which relays the band’s completely unfiltered response to the world’s state of affairs. It contains political, social and personal commentary and is conceptualized by the band’s lead vocalist, John Gouley. The album grapples with abstract ideas such as the falling apart of one’s world and how one can hold on to their sanity through it. It also contains completely fresh lyrics, different from any of the previous things they had been recording during the three year album-hiatus.
Before recording this song, Portugal. The Man took some drastic actions which, by their own standards, seem nothing short of insane. They were so driven by the promise of ‘Woodstock’ that they chucked out every track and lyric they had been working on previously. While this was a risk which could land them out of a recording contract, thankfully (and successfully) it worked out. ‘Woodstock’ truly is a whole new Portugal. The Man; quirky as always while being self-aware as well.

The Man is headlining this tour and other acts such as Lido, Cut Copy and Maybird are touring with them as well.
