Portugal. The Man to share previously unreleased "live" album from 2008

Atlantic Records

In December of 2008 Portugal. The Man found themselves in a studio in Portland, Oregon after wrapping up an extensive tour. The Alaskan band wanted to capture what their setlist had become in a full-set performance, so they recorded what has become the Oregon City Sessions-- which they accomplished in one run with no re-takes or overdubs.

A film version of this endeavor was occasionally unveiled in the homes of friends and in parking lots after shows for a few fans, but the accompanying album has never been properly released-- until now!

Oregon City Sessions officially drops April 16th on streaming platforms, with physical editions due June 11th.
