MGMT Schedules North American Tour Dates
As previously reported, MGMT are due to return with their third LP this June, their first album of new material since 2010’s divisive Congratulations. As is tradition, the duo will embark with their band of a support tour that includes many stop in the U.S. and Canada, in what would seem to be a pivotal moments in their career arc.
Included in the itinerary are festival dates at Firefly, Kanrocksas—which sounds like just the best—and Bunbury, as well as hockey towns of the great north and less frequented locals like Saskatoon and Spokane.
The official album announcement should be imminent, as well as some studio samplings from the act that exploded in 2007 and 2008 on the back of mega-hit—and excellent karaoke jam—“Kids.”
