The band has reached worldwide popularity and continues to tour in major cities, putting on surreal shows for its adoring fans.
Em-Gee-Em-TeeMGMT is Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. The pair founded the band originally under the name The Management in Middletown, Conn., in 2002, changing it to MGMT when they realized another band was already using the same name. Having started out simply as two friends showing each other music, with no plans of starting a band together, MGMT went on to release two demo albums - Climbing to New Lows and We (Don't) Care. Since then, MGMT has released four albums: Oracular Spectacular (2007), Congratulations (2010), MGMT (2013) and Little Dark Age (2018).
