MGMT Me and Michael

In anticipation of the release of their latest album Little Dark Age this Friday February 9th, MGMT have released a new video for their latest single “Me & Michael.”

The David Cronenberg influenced video references both the movies Videodrome and eXistenZ with the use of fleshy video monitors and vaginal stomach lacerations. Despite being a narrative about MGMT stealing a song from a Phillipino band they saw on the internet, and it becoming a giant hit, and their eventual downfall amongst claims of plagarism.

The video directed by Joey Frank and Randy Lee Maitland takes place in a grotesque future where everything is garishly lit, and all technology is biologically based. The video eventually transitions into complete surreality with flying sperm and a guy that removes his own testicles through an orifice in his stomach.

The band will be hitting the road in March, with a stop here on May 18th at The Palladium. You can buy tickets here.

You can preorder Little Dark Age on vinyl here. Or if you like your music digitally here.

Check out the videos for “Little Dark Age” and “When You Die” here.
