Portugal. The Man‘s highly anticipated album American Ghetto will be released digitally on March 2nd.

Almost immediately after recording the critically acclaimed, The Satanic Satanist, Portugal. The Man‘s John Gourley returned to Boston’s Camp Street Studios to begin recording “something a bit more beat driven and… a bit more spontaneous,” as Gourley described in a letter to their fans on their website today. The result is American Ghetto, the band’s most personal and the “most consistent album, lyrically” to date.

“This album is a very important one to me,” Gourley continues. “It is very personal and it is very much a part of this band. It is a part of our growth and a part of our future. It is something that I strongly felt needed to be something for all of you, something for the people that have supported this band.”

In keeping with the “for the fans” dynamic of American Ghetto the band will be making the album available to everyone – fans, press, and radio alike – on the same day.
