    Oddly punctuated band Portugal. The Man have announced details of its upcoming United States tour. The Portland-via-Alaska-based band has just embarked on a major European tour, with headline shows and festival appearances slated for Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, which should, if nothing else, yield impressive passport stamps. Upon their return, Portugal. The Man will join up with Primus' eagerly awaited "The Oddity Faire 2010," with dates kicking off September 20 at Eagle, Idaho's Eagle River Pavilion. As if all that weren't enough, the band will also appear at this year's Austin Music Festival extravaganza, slated for October 10 at Austin, Texas' Zilker Park. Portugal. The Man recently commenced work with producer John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., The Bravery) on their as-yet-untitled Approaching AIRballoons/Atlantic Records debut, scheduled for release in early 2011. Since their formation in 2005, Portugal. The Man has captured the attention of the American indie scene with their extraordinary amalgamation of electronic beats, complex melodies and atmospheric post-rock soundscapes. Formed in Wasilla, Alaska by lead singer/guitarist/songwriter John Baldwin Gourley before migrating south to the Pacific Northwest, the band proved as prolific as they were eclectic, releasing an album each year. They are originally from the same town as Sarah Palin! Oh no! Let's hope they don't share the former governor's politics.

    In addition to their frequent studio releases, Portugal. The Man has been an equally inexhaustible live act, performing nearly 800 shows in the band's 5-year history. The tour dates are below; they will tour with Primus through October 3.
