The band recently said that they do not think it is healthy for bands to share too much information on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Speaking to Digital Spy, both Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden said that they felt uncomfortable with feeling like they are expected to update fans constantly with information and revealed that they held off starting an MGMT Twitter account until earlier this year.

"People have come to expect that from the artist, that they should be sharing every aspect of their lives," says Goldwasser. He adds: "It dilutes the whole thing in a way, and I don't know if it'll ever be the same again where there were people like David Bowie. Who really knew anything about David Bowie? He was able to craft this mysterious image that wasn't really him but this character [Ziggy Stardust] he created. You don't know how much of it was him or the character. That's something that is getting lost."
