About the Band
MGMT consists primarily of Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden who met while
freshman at Wesleyan University and inadvertently started the project just by getting together and playing each other music
that they both liked. In 2005, after the duo graduated they embarked on a tour in support of their Time to Pretend EP. By
2006 they signed with Columbia Records and began working on their debut album Oracular Spectacular which was released in 2007.
Soon the band added touring members and opened for big name acts including Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, and M.I.A. In
2010 they released their follow-up Congratulations and played major festivals and appeared on several late night talk shows
including David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. In 2013 MGMT released their third, self-titled, album. During their successful
career as a band MGMT has also been able to collaborate with Kid Cudi, the Flaming Lips, Beck, Ratatat, and Devendra Banhart
among others. The band has been nominated for several awards and won a Grammy and three NME Awards.
were a hit pretty much from the start. Their earliest recordings earned them the respect of luminaries including Thom Yorke
and Paul McCartney but it was their 2007 major label debut, Oracular Spectacular, that really got mainstream music fans to
pay attention. The album was loaded with hits including "Electric Feel", "Kids", and "Time to Pretend" which received major
airplay and helped the album to go platinum. In fact, MGMT gained so much fame and so many fans that the members began to
feel a little uncomfortable with their new celebrity status and by the time they went to the studio to record their follow-up,
Congratulations, they had threatened not to release any singles and had hoped to make an album that might isolate part of
their large fan base.

MGMT originally went by the name
Management but when they heard of another group using that name they were forced to change their name and decided to go with
MGMT which is short for management. MGMT sued the UPM which was headed by former French President Nicolas Sarkozy for using
their song Kids in videos and at a conference without permission. The two sides eventually settled out of court with UPM paying
for legal fees and giving MGMT 30,000 Euro.
