On the heels of announcing the release of their sophomore record Congratulations, MGMT will embark on a world tour, reaching our shores for one show only on April 6 in Sydney at Metro Theatre. MGMT will be playing selections from Congratulations, the follow up to their 2008, critically acclaimed debut Oracular Spectacular.
Soulful and complex, Congratulations is a surprising and delightful quantum step forward in MGMT’s ongoing pop revolution. Produced by MGMT and Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, E.A.R., Spectrum), Congratulations was recorded throughout 2009 in upstate New York, Malibu, and Brooklyn and features Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, MGMT’s core duo, performing with Matt Asti (bass, backing vocals), Will Berman (drums, backing vocals), and James Richardson (guitar, backing vocals), the band’s live line-up.
Due to the forecasted popularity of this show, a ticket limit of two per person will be enforced to ensure fans have maximum opportunity to secure tickets.
Congratulations is available for pre-order at www.whoismgmt.com
