MGMT confirm 2017 album release, will debut new material on upcoming tour

"New songs from our new album that you will newly hear this year!”

Last September, MGMT gave an update on the progress of their new album, promising it would “re-dominate your mind hole in *2017.” Now Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser have revealed that they’ll be performing new music as part of their upcoming summer tour.

“Incredibly soon we will get back up on the horse of live music in Memphis,” MGMT said in a press release. “And from atop this great horse we will play old songs and new songs. New songs from our new album that you will newly hear this year!”
