Just what this Friday needs, a spicy good new track and video from the Lords of Portland, aka Portugal The Man. The band have been hard at work on the follow-up to 2013’s magnificent Evil Friends with production by Michael Diamond, better known as the immortal Mike D of the Beastie Boys. Are you fucking excited? We’re fucking excited.
Check out Noise Pollution, with accompanying video, and the following message of poignant promise from the boys:
It’s been a rough month y’all.
Not to be dramatic and shit, but there’s a flood of noise right now that feels like it might drown us all. And it’s harder and harder to tell what’s fact, what’s opinion, and what’s just straight up bullshit.
We’re not able to make sense of it, much less tell you how to make sense of it. Thank God there’s music for that. We’ve been working on a new record with your boy Michael Diamond for awhile, but we made a quick stop in Alaska with filmmaker Michael Ragen to shoot this video. Seemed like the right time to show it to you.
We’re in this together.
