MGMT to Play The Ryman March 11

After months of buildup and a string of excellent singles, oddball indie duo MGMT have finally revealed a release date for their highly-anticipated fourth album, Little Dark Age. Slated to arrive Feb. 9, the record marks the group’s first effort in nearly five years, and first since the somewhat lukewarm reception to their eponymous third LP. Both in descriptions and as evidenced by what we’ve heard so far, Little Dark Age is, by all accounts, a focused, relaxed return to form, aligning the band’s more off-kilter, psyched out tendencies with a pop focus, and positioning itself to perhaps be their best received album since 2007 debut Oracular Spectacular.

While a bit surprising that they’re not more prominent on the festival circuit this summer, MGMT are opting instead to gear up with a string of theater dates, which includes a just-announced March 11 show at The Ryman Auditorium, where they played their last Nashville concert way back in 2010. Needless to say, it feels like a particularly inspired time to see the group in action, and with Music City stops few and far between, interest is sure to be at an all-time high. We’d recommend snagging tickets as soon as they go on sale, Friday, Jan. 19 at 10 a.m. CST (or various pre-sales beginning as early as today) right here.
