The Woodstock Music Festival used to be one of the biggest musical events in the U.S during the 1960’s. The newest and biggest bands would play this festival, and their raw, original music would inspire audiences all around. It just so happens that Portugal’s lead vocalist, John Gouley’s father had attended this festival in 1969 as well, while Gouley himself had heard about it from him many times. He loved the lack of filter and honesty in the music of the time and became inspired by it.
Meanwhile, the rest of the band had been working on scattered singles for years now, and it just seemed like the perfect opportunity for a concept album. So the band threw all of their works-in-progress out, to the dismay of their music label, and began working on completely new songs. The result of this exercise was ‘Woodstock’ an album which comments on the disastrous state of the present sociopolitical climate and how one can find hope in the chaos. The sound of this particular album is completely different from the band’s previous works. However, the album retains the humor and quirkiness of the act’s previously penned lyrics.
Less than a month after the release of their album, the band decided to tour North America with it. As a result, Portugal. The Man is on the road with an exciting new show, which includes other acts such as Maybird, Lido and Cut Copy. So purchase your Portugal the Man El Paso tickets and witness what’s new with this band.
