Portishead are starting a whirlwind tour through the U.S. They just played the ATP / I'll Be Your Mirror festival in New Jersey over the weekend, and will be rolling out to cities like Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle after playing New York's Hammerstein Ballroom this week.
Prtishead front guy Geoff Barrow told Rolling Stone last week that the band is (slowly) working on a new album, but it looks like 2012 will be the year that they work on the new Portishead album, saying "I'm going to start in January, I don't know when Beth's gonna start or when Adrian [Utley] is gonna start, but I'm gonna get my head together for January basically to start writing." Then again, he said the same thing in 2010 about starting in 2011.
