Starting in April...
NME reports that MGMT have announced a new US tour that will begin at Penn State University Park on April 26 and ends at the Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati on July 13.
Sometime during the tour will fall the release date of the band's third album, which is expected to arrive in June. It is the follow-up to Congratulations and was recorded over the last year in a cabin in Buffalo, New York.
Ben Goldwasser said: "We're not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it."
Meanwhile, Andrew VanWyngarden said of their record label: "There's no illusion on their part that we're going to turn into a Top 40 band. That's kind of comforting."
