MGMT Illustrated

MGMT announced the release date of their new album Little Dark Age today, February 9th from Columbia Records. They also released a behind-the-scenes video documenting the recording of the new album.

MGMT will also embark on a North American headlining tour this Spring. The band has released three singles from their new album already, “Hand it Over,” “When You Die” and “Little Dark Ages.” The video for “Little Dark Age” was directed by Nathaniel Axel & David MacNutt. It is sumptuously photographed and bathed in smoke, lead singer Andrew VanWyngarden is decked out in appropriately synth-goth wear.

MGMT also released a video for “When You Die” directed by Mike Burakoff & Hallie Cooper-Novack. The video combines bad magicians with spaced-out imagery of people floating through the cosmos.

Presales for Little Dark Age begin on Friday, so keep your eyes peeled here for vinyl options.

MGMT will be playing the Palladium here in Los Angeles on May 18th. Get your tickets here.
