Age Of Everything: MGMT detail new album, announce North American tour

Back in October, MGMT unveiled a new song called “Little Dark Age,” and it was quite a crowd-pleaser. The duo followed it up a few weeks ago with the ultra-chill single “Hand It Over,” and everyone was pretty much like “Wow this new MGMT album is shaping up nicely.”

Today we are greeted with details on the record — its called Little Dark Age and it’s out February 9 via Columbia Records — and news of a North American tour that finds MGMT playing The Orpheum Theatre in Boston on March 16.

Little Dark Age came together at Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York, and was produced by MGMT, Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift, Kelela, Blood Orange), and long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Spoon, Tame Impala). It’ll feature 10 tracks, including the aforementioned singles.

Meanwhile, tickets to most of the MGMT shows below go on sale this Friday (January 19). Get into it. Featured MGMT photo by Brad Elterman.
