MGMT’s new video for “Your Life Is A Lie” is anything but dull. Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden and bring us a two-minute clip filled with colorful characters, and odd repetitive visuals including a skeleton chorus and sobbing rocks. There’s even a guest appearance from Henry Winkler better known as “Fonzie” a popular character from the ‘70s sitcom Happy Days. Tom Kuntz, who also worked with the band on their video for “Congratulations,” directs the video.
“Your Life Is A Lie” is the lead single for the psychedelic rock band’s self-titled forthcoming third album due out September 17. Following the album drop, MGMT will be hitting the road for an extensive fall tour of the U.K. and Europe. The tour will visit Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, France, Holland, and the United Kingdom and will wrap-up Oct. 19 at the Olympia in Dublin, Ireland.
