There are less than 400 Sumatran Tigers in existence. Unfortunately most of the world is unaware of this frightening fact. Without action, the species will completely disappear. To spread the message of the Tiger’s vulnerability, we’ve created a song that will also go extinct unless it’s reproduced. These custom lathe-cut records are made from polycarbonate plastic, which means it will degrade after a certain amount of plays, causing the song to eventually disappear and go extinct. The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, in collaboration with us, have made only 400 records of this unreleased song. There are no other copies in existence. Tigers are dwindling every year. Social influence and conservation action could actually help save a species.

This #EarthDay we’re teaming up w/ @smithsonianzoo to ignite change & help save the #SumatranTiger from extinction. Stay tuned. #EndangeredSong
Our new song #EndangeredSong comes out tomorrow #EarthDay #SumatranTiger
Anonymous asked: how can i meet ptm before a gig? im seeing them this sunday but im not sure when exactly to arrive or where to go in order to meet them
I’m not exactly sure because they could arrive the night before or they could arrive 20 minutes before the show starts, depending on their schedule. You can always try going a couple hours early, but theres no telling whether the venue will let you in beforehand. Give it a go, but I suggest trying to meet them after the gig instead!
P.TM easy tag skull. I showed ya mine, you show me yours. #ptm #portugaltheman #evilfriends

Anonymous asked: do you happen to know how many songs ptm play when they open for another band? i love them and i wanna see them open for the national but im not sure if their set is worth it.
A relatively short set, probably about 5 songs max?

mummbls asked: I read somewhere that said John didn't have too great of a high school experience, something along the lines of his 'darker times', where can I read more about what he went through, I'm so curious.
Here are some interviews that I liked:
