Kuala Lumpur – Get ready to paint the town a kaleidoscope of reds when hot-wired US rockers MGMT hits KL Live on March 25th for their first ever Malaysian concert. Crossing psychedelic rock with pure adrenaline electro-pop, MGMT is the band behind massive international radio hits Time to Pretend, Kids, Electric Feel and It’s Working and the albums Oracular Spectacular [2008] and Congratulations [2010].

MGMT LIVE IN KUALA LUMPUR is brought to you by FUTURE SOUND ASIA (FSA), the highly regarded organizers of successful shows like Thirst featuring Godskitchen Boombox, The Rapture, 2manydjs, Boysnoize and many more.

Led by duo Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, MGMT emerged in 2008 and immediately took the critics, the music fans and the pop charts by storm, creating a mass of public support around the globe. And with the rapid success of their debut album Oracular Spectacular, the band cut their teeth on the live festival circuit before graduating to their own large-scale headline shows with the release of second album Congratulations in 2010.

Paramore "a manufactured product of a major label," - Zac Farro

"The band was in the dark the whole time. After many meetings between Hayley, her manager and the labels they decided to sign her to Atlantic Records. We didn't understand why Hayley was the only one signing the contract since we were told this was a 'band,' but we were too young to grasp all of this. ... Next thing we knew we were having a signing party for Hayley."

"Hayley's father ... would constantly threaten to 'pull the plug' on the whole band if we complained about anything, suggesting that we were hired guns and Hayley was the real artist, when in reality we were also part of the band. We've always been treated as less important than Hayley. It's been obvious how her family views things."

"Hayley claimed that this record reunited us as band and made us grow closer together, when in reality we were all growing further apart," he writes. "Suddenly the band had spilt into two sides. Touring became more difficult since we couldn't agree on anything. The friendships our band once had were no longer existent."


I guess it sucks to be in a band like this anyway right?? well, we wish that all parties from Paramore have a bright future in this music industry... The Farro brothers can always form a new band... and Hayley can always be the 'rock star' she's meant to be... :D
