Chart Toppers Portugal. The Man Cancel Sunrise Appearance Over "Recent Statements" Channel Seven

Alaskan band Portugal. The Man, who are most famous for their hit 'Feel It Still' pulled out of their scheduled performance on Sunrise this morning after "recent statements" the show had made.

The band released a statement on their social media pages overnight, explaining the reason for the cancellation and said that "we do not want to be part of that show".

Post

"We were scheduled to appear on Sunrise tomorrow morning but we have decided, as a band, that we do not want to be part of that show at this time. We come from rural Alaska and hold very close to our hearts the indigenous people of our home.

"While we are by no means experts in your countries history we know there are problems that, like ours, are yet to be resolved and only being amplified by the recent statements on Sunrise. Uncle Allen Madden will be welcoming us all to our show in Sydney tonight. Love and Respect"

Allen Madden is a board member of Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council and a traditional owner of the Gadigal land on which the Sydney show is being performed.

The band have not addressed any specific incidents or segments that they disagree with on Sunrise.
