Band will play eight songs three weeks before album release

Portishead will perform eight tracks from their forthcoming album on Current TV on April 11 – three weeks before the album is released on April 28.

The performances from ‘Third’ will be recorded live in the town from which the band took their name, and as such the programme will be titled ‘Portishead In Portishead’.

The broadcast will be available to watch on the Current TV website for two months after initially being shown.

‘Portishead In Portishead’ will be broadcast at 10pm (BST) on April 11.
