More on Portugal. The Man:
Multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning alternative rock band Portugal. The Man have released their highly-anticipated return with the forthcoming single, “What, Me Worry?”
In releasing the new single, the band is launching a groundbreaking campaign to reward fans who pre-save the track with 1 $PTM of PTM Coin, the band's very own community-built social token (a type of cryptocurrency). To participate, create a free account on Rally, a platform where artists and their fan communities build shared digital economies powered by social tokens and digital goods and services.
PTM Coin provides fans with a number of exclusive perks and experiences, including access to concert pre-sale codes, events hosted by the band, and hundreds of live show recordings, B-sides, and demos housed within the PTM Archives, as well as potential shared value created by the PTM economy. Additional exclusive opportunities will become available for coin holders.
Alongside the debut of the coin last year, the band penned an op-ed for Rolling Stone detailing the motivations behind developing their own unique cryptocurrency. Read that here.
Produced by Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Harry Styles, Beyoncé), “What, Me Worry?” is the first single from the band’s long-awaited 9th studio album, due out this June.
The new single arrives as the Alaska-born, Portland-based rockers prepare for their upcoming 34-date tour alongside alt-J, set to kick off Feb 25 with support from Sir Chloe and Cherry Glazerr (full tour itinerary below). The tour includes a stop at LA’s Crypto.com Arena on March 27 as well as a show at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on April 11.
All the above arrives following the stellar success of the band’s 2017 RIAA gold-certified album, Woodstock, highlighted by the inescapable, 6x platinum-certified hit, “Feel It Still,” which earned the band their first GRAMMY Award for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” and dominated airwaves – hitting #1 at Top 40 radio and breaking the Alternative radio record for longest running number #1 of all time at 20 weeks. Woodstock also delivered the Gold-certified single “Live In The Moment,” which also hit #1 at Alternative radio and broke the record for most plays in a single week at the format.
Don’t Miss Portugal. The Man with alt-J at The TD Pavilion at the Mann on April 13th here in Philly!
