MGMT SET COURSE FOR SPRING 2010 TOUR
CONGRATULATIONS IN STORES APRIL 13
This Spring MGMT will set out on a tour of North America in support of their sophomore release Congratulations, in stores April 13, 2010. U.S. tour dates kick off with a pair of back to back, sold out shows at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore on April 12 and 13. The band returns to Indio, CA on April 17 to deliver another memorable performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Following their first festival debut of the year, the band will continue touring through out the summer, also performing at Bamboozle on May 2 and Lollapalooza on August 8th (see below for full itinerary).
With the release of Congratulations, MGMT continue to evolve their visionary and groundbreaking style of music. Critics are cheering Congratulations for its sincerity and originality. Spin described the new music as "uncommonly, emotionally honest" while MOJO declared it "the post-punk Brit-psych masterpiece of the year... a reinvention so fully realized" in their 5 star review. MGMT will perform selections from Congratulations when they make their debut appearance on Saturday Night Live on April 24. MGMT also return to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman on May 11.
A video for the song "Flash Delirium" debuted this month giving fans a glimpse into the band's interpretation of the confusing state of the world in modern times. Directed by Andreas Nilsson (Fever Ray, Goldfrapp) the video features a surrealistic homecoming that goes awry in tempest of destruction and confusion. "Flash Delirium" can be seen at www.whoismgmt.com.
