While Portugal. The Man doesn’t get down to the different city each night routine until June, the band does have a couple of May shows.  Launching the journey with an intimate gig at New York’s Irving Plaza May 20, the group’s second May show is at Beantown’s Boston Calling Music Festival May 25.

The serious roadwork begins in early June in Philadelphia followed by cutting a path across the country with stops including Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Houston, Denver, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Seattle. 

Then there’s the band’s June festival plans, including a yet to be announced Bonnaroo date as well as return trip to New York City for the Governors Ball Music Festival.

The band will also have new music for this journey.  Produced by Danger Mouse, Evil Friends arrives June 4 and will be available for pre-order April 30.
