Dreamy psyche-synth rockers MGMT have announced a European tour which will touch down in the UK and Republic of Ireland in mid October.

The tour will follow the release of the duo’s third studio album, MGMT, due to hit the physical and electronic shelves this summer, a song from which ('Alien Days'), was unveiled for Record Store Day in April, apparently inspired by "that feeling when a parasitic alien is in your head, controlling things."

And they think people are mislead in assuming they take too many drugs!?

The duo will play:

  • 10/12: Glasgow, UK - ABC1
  • 10/13: Wolverhampton, UK - Civic
  • 10/14: Manchester, UK - Apollo
  • 10/16: London, UK - Forum
  • 10/19: Dublin, Ireland - Olympia

Pre-sale tickets go on sale on Friday 19 June, with general sale going live the week after on Friday 21 June.
