MGMT have a new album almost out. This much you probably know.
MGMT’s new album is titled Congratulations, has mad artwork that we’ve actually come to quite like, can be streamed in full on the MGMT website, and represents a quicker, itchier sound for the band, who made their name with woozy, synth-led anthems like ‘Kids’ and ‘Time to Pretend’.
MGMT also recently played a big London date, at Heaven. They’ve now – and this is the bit you might not know – announced a series of September headline dates, in Dublin, Glasgow, Birmingham, London and more. Tickets go on sale to the MGMT fan club via the band’s website/mailing list from 7-9 April, and on general sale from 9 April, at 9am. Those dates then:
Thu 16 Dublin Olympia
Mon 20 Glasgow Barrowland
Thu 23 Birmingham O2 Academy
Fri 24 Bournemouth O2 Academy
Sun 26 Manchester Apollo
Wed 29 London Brixton O2 Academy
Thu 30 London Brixton O2 Academy
