After more than 2-and-a-half years of work, on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, MGMT will release their third album self-titled MGMT. Two singles from the forthcoming album were released as a cassette tape special for Record Store Day (April 20) containing the studio cut of “Alien Days”, and earlier this month Tom Kuntz directed the releases first video, “Your Life Is A Lie.”
If that wasn’t enough to satiate your thirst for music ranging from the occult and bizarre to pure Brooklyn-based hipsterdom, The Avant/Garde Diaries will premier a sneak peek trailer for the album directed by Jordan Fish on Wednesday, September 4, 2013. The visual showcase will highlight five new songs from the album, and promises viewers a unique, if not surreal, look into the current leanings of the band and their sound.
If MGMT’s previous work is a foreshadowing of what’s to come, no matter how off-the-wall, it’s going to be worth a listen.
Be sure to head over to The Avant/Garde Diaries next Wednesday to catch the premier.
