Story by Jack Foley

MGMT have announced details of a UK tour for October 2013.

The duo will play Glasgow, Manchester, Wolverhampton and London in support of their forthcoming third album, which is due this summer.

The as-yet untitled LP is the follow-up to Congratulations and was recorded over the course of a year in a cabin near Buffalo, New York.

Two tracks have so far appeared from the album – Mystery Disease was unveiled at a gig at Penn State University in Pennsylvania back in April.

And Alien Days was released as a cassette single for Record Store Day on April 20.

MGMT’s Ben Goldwasser recently said of the record: “We’re not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it.”

The MGMT tour dates are (all October 2013):

12 – Glasgow ABC1
13 – Wolverhampton Civic
14 – Manchester O2 Apollo
16 – London Forum
