Portugal. The Man offer up their brand new visuals for the track "All Your Light (Times Like These)". The track features on the great album from the band, In The Mountain, In The Cloud. It's a pretty strange video to wrap your head around and gets a little grim towards the end. I don't really know how to explain this one without you seeing it so go ahead and click play above.
Wu Tang Abbott, The RZA is no stranger to mixing up with different genres of music especially with all of the artists he's worked with over the past decade. So it comes as no surprise (okay maybe a little) that RZA jumped at the oppourtunity to remix Portugal. The Man's "All My Light" from their latest album In The Mountain in the Cloud. As Fader points out, the track came together for the simple reason that the band are huge Wu-Tang fans, so they reached out to RZA and he said yes. Dope right? The remix definitely displays that classic Bobby Digi sound from the addicting bass line loops and hard drums, only wished RZA dropped a special guest verse on the track.
Paying their respects to the late, great Etta James, Portugal. The Man have offered up a fantastic sounding cover of her classic track, "I’d Rather Go Blind". The track was part of a KCRW session the band did and it sounds devine. A fitting dedication from one talent to another. Etta will be missed but her legend lives on. Check out PTM's take on the track below.
Last July, Portugal. The Man released their fantastic sixth studio album In the Mountain In the Cloud, and this Spring the psychedelic rock outfit will further support the release with a Jägermeister sponsored tour. With support from The Lonely Forest, the band will kick off their Spring tour in Boise, Idaho on April 3rd, and from there will see them visiting 25 other cities, the final of which will be San Francisco on May 6th. Pre-sale tickets for the tour are currently on sale at the band's website, with general public tickets going on sale on January 27th.
You can take a look at the band's full tour itinerary after the jump.

Portugal. The Man have had a pretty impressive 2011 following the release of their album In The Mountain In The Cloud and our good friends at the Audio Perv have just premiered this incredibly nice sounding acoustic rendition of their track "Everything You See [Kids Count Hallelujahs]" which was directed by Graham Baclagon. The nicely shot video manages to capture this band really well and I'm ever eager to see these guys live sooner rather than later. See what you make of it at the top.
In The Mountain In The Cloud is out now and you can go grab a copy over here.
Portugal. The Man seem to be going from strength to strength and with the release of their highly recommendable album In the Mountain in the Cloud they welcomed themselves into the homes of many more fans. Tours followed and recently when playing the House of Blues in San Diego they played a little gem of a cover. Surprising the audience with a great performance of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Cool huh? They were playing their track "The Devil" Before they wandered into the 60's vibe of The Beatles. Check out the stream below via Prefix/You Ain't No Picasso
Last night on Conan Portugal. The Man made their national TV debut and what a debut it was. Performing "So American" from their album In the Mountain in the Cloud they even had some extra musicians helping out on string duties. The performance sounds and looks great. Make sure you stay tuned right until the big finish.
Catch it at the top and if you don't have their album in your life yet change it right now and go buy it!
