MGMT are finally ready to put out Little Dark Age. and take their show on the road. It will be released on Feb. 9, and the news was accompanied by the track listing and dates for a North American tour. The band have previously teased the record with the title track and its closer, "Hand It Over."
MGMT revealed all the details today on Facebook, and Vanyaland adds that Little Dark Age was tracked at Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, N.Y., with Patrick Wimberly and Dave Fridmann co-producing it with the band.
