We’re approaching the 75% mark on 2016 and if you were wondering when MGMT would fulfill their promise made last year to make a comeback in 2016, we suggest taking a breather.
On Twitter earlier this week, the band annotated a statement made last Christmas that promised MGMT would return with new music and tour in 2016. Looks like the wait has been pushed back until 2017.
Happy bday jesus . Merry holidays everyone. Happy birthday, everyone: 2016 is the year MGMT re-dominates your mind hole , see you then ?

Don’t worry MGMT, you and The Shins have that in common.
While we haven’t heard a peep of new music from the psych-rock group this year, the pair released a tribute to Alan Vega after his passing. Listen below:
