MGMT Add Intimate New Jersey Show, Release Cassette Single

MGMT have confirmed an intimate New York-area show. On June 20, the psychedelic rock group will perform at Montclair, NJ’s The Wellmont Theater. The group is touring in advance of their self-titled third album, which is slated for release in August. MGMT also released their new album’s first single, “Alien Days,” as a cassette-only single on Record Store Day (you can check out the song and its b-side “Message 7 from Hearty White” below). According to the band, the track serves as a stylistic bridge between their 2010 album Congratulations and the rest of MGMT. The group will perform in State College, PA on April 26.

it probably sold out the first day, there’s def a cult market for cassettes and a bigger market of people who collect limited releases. i would disagree that it was a disaster or even a mistake. it seems kind of clever, that was the only RSD cassette release.
