MGMT premieres new video starring Michael K. Williams, announces fall tour dates

MGMT’s new, self-titled record isn’t very good, but the group just dropped a new video starring The Wire and Boardwalk Empire’s Michael K. Williams, so maybe we’ll let MGMT’s faults slide for another day. The clip for “Cool Song No. 2” finds Williams playing an Omar-like badass who might not have a trench coat but does have a male lover. Williams’ character drives a hot car and kills people with his bare hands, and then deals with his boyfriend, who appears to somehow be turning into a tree. 

MGMT is out next Tuesday, Sept. 24. The band has a number of tour dates lined up, and those are listed below.
