MGMT introduce “It’s Working,” the latest video from their critically acclaimed sophomore album Congratulations.  The video was directed by French artist So Me.  Renowned for his distinctive designs for Ed Banger Records, So Me has directed music videos for Kanye West and Kid Cudi (as well as co-directing “A Cross the Universe,” a documentary chronicling the 2008 US tour of French act Justice).  So Me recently partnered with Nike on their True Colors series to design exclusive sportswear celebrating the World Cup.  “It’s Working” is yet another visual foray into the world of intriguing imagery distinctive to MGMT.  The video for “It’s Working” can be seen at www.whoismgmt.com.mgmt its working cover

MGMT recently kicked off their U.S. Summer tour, which included stops at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Bamboozle Music Festival as well as Sasquatch Festival.  MGMT recently played their largest headlining show anywhere in the world with a sold-out, 9,500 capacity gig at Morrison, Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre  (see below for full tour dates).  

MGMT can also be seen performing songs from Congratulations live on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (June 24-two songs) and the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (July 23).  MGMT have also been nominated for a Teen Choice award in the category of Choice Music Rock Group.  The Teen Choice Awards will air on Fox on Monday August 9, 2010 at 8pm EST
