Just as Geoff Barrow is kicking on new projects and the new Portishead album is alive but crawling comes news of a small Portishead tour, consisting of five European shows. The shows include stops in Barcelona (two shows) and Rome. The shows may only be a small Portishead tour, but the band seems to be unwinding at their pace into the next phase of their existence, all of which will lead to an addition to the library of Portishead albums. Hopefully we'll see some U.S. shows to, to build on the Portishead tour that happened last Fall. You can also check out recent live performances from the band with Portishead Jimmy Fallon appearance from that time.
As for that new Portishead album, Geoff Barrow tells The Quietus: "There's definitely going to be another record, we're just going to get on it as soon as my studio gets working. We've been getting together recently and talking about lots of stuff. There's definitely going to be another record, we're just going to get on it as soon as my studio gets working."
