MGMT Announce Fall Tour, Share New Video For “Cool Song No. 2″

On the same day MGMT release their self-titled album, the band has also shared the visuals for “Cool Song No. 2.” The video stars Michael K. Williams (Omar from The Wire and Chalky from Boardwalk Empire) who portrays a man that turns plants into drugs. Yet it’s not all high action and drama; Williams’ character falls in love with a oddly disfigured man along the way. It’s beautifully shot and much more reminiscent of a short film than a music video. The band also announced a fall North American headlining tour, which kicks off at the end of September and will wrap up around the middle of December. Take a look at the full schedule below.
