While numerous outlets such as NPR and The New York Times have lauded The Glitch Mob for their unique live performances, according to The Mob’s Justin Boreta, “Partnering with Lollapalooza to premiere our newest single just seemed like a natural fit. What really triggered the decision is the cool add-ons Lollapalooza’s website implemented for fan interaction."
“Known for its live performances, which fuse electronic and live instrumentation, the group works in elements of hip-hop, breakbeat and electro into their compositions.” NPR
Lollapalooza’s eclectic lineup reflects the varying sensibilities of The Glitch Mob fans, who appreciate everything from hip hop to electro beat, dubstep, innovative rock, indie rock, jam bands, and beyond. Similar Minds: The Glitch Mob will be playing on Perry Farrell’s stage on August 6th.
Other than festivals, this tour sees The Glitch Mob headlining their largest venues to date. The first two headlining club shows - San Francisco’s Regency and San Diego’s Belly Up both sold out advance. In addition, a performance at Electric Daisy Carnival warranted interviews with outlets as diverse as the newsworthy Wall Street Journal and NPR, plus the indie-hipster international bible, Spin Magazine and tastemaker blog The Music Ninja.
This tour is one of the group’s most involved tours ever, debuting some of their most innovative new music yet. This time around, they tapped stage designers Martin Phillips and John McGuire to help produce the display of lights and images. Phillips and McGuire are widely known for their work with Daft Punk, Nine Inch Nails, Kanye West and countless others. It’s all a triumphant extension of the excitement that followed upon last year’s release of Drink The Sea, the Mob’s debut artist album, which rose to unexpected heights amidst already heightened expectations, with fans following as the band pushed into uncharted boundaries, yet still emerging victorious.
Courtesy of our partnership with Lollapalooza, we are proud to offer you The Glitch Mob’s new single “Warrior Concerto,” from their forthcoming EP “We Can Make The World Stop.”
“The Glitch Mob, one of very few acts to include live instruments, sometimes pounded on three sets of drums to push its hip-hop remixes even further into bass-heavy foreboding.”
