MGMT have announced an October 2013 UK tour.

The duo will play Glasgow, Manchester, Wolverhampton and London on the stretch, which will be in support of their forthcoming third album, which is due this summer. The LP is the follow-up to 'Congratulations', and was recorded over the course of a year in a cabin near Buffalo, New York. Speaking about the record, Ben Goldwasser of the band has revealed: "We're not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it."

The band have so far premiered two tracks from the album. They performed the track 'Mystery Disease' at a gig at Penn State University in Pennsylvania back in April. Scroll down to see fan-shot footage of it. This followed the song 'Alien Days', which was appeared online released as a cassette single for Record Store Day on April 20. Talking about the track, the band's Andrew VanWyngarden said it was about "that feeling when a parasitic alien is in your head, controlling things".

MGMT will play:

Glasgow ABC1 (October 12)
Wolverhampton Civic (13)
Manchester O2 Apollo (14)
London Forum (16)
