This April has certainly been one for the record books for electronic-rock trio, The Glitch Mob. Deemed a 'must-see Coachella act' by LA Times, Fuse TV, and Dancing Astronaut, the LA-based supergroup made their way back to their native state of California this past weekend for two massive performances at the word-renound music and arts festival. Dazzling audience members with stunning visual displays and flawless musical compositions, they showed no mercy as they debuted their new live performance to the west coast for the first time. Truly leaving their mark on all in attendance, The Glitch Mob was named one of the '50 Best Things' witnessed by Rolling Stone at Coachella, calling to attention their "dayglow synths", "relentless beat barriages" and "face melting, arena-ready visuals".

Coming off these all-star performances in the desert, The Glitch Mob continue on their musical-conquest of the west coast as they head to Colorado this weekend for a special two-night stop at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium. These shows mark the official kick off of the 2nd leg of their Love Death Immortality nationwide tour, which will feature stops in Salt Lake City, Boise, Portland, Seattle, Reno, San Francisco, and last but not least, Los Angeles' Club Nokia. This leg will also include performances at Governor's Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Lollapalooza.

To commemorate this moment in the midst of a career-BREAKing spring, TGM has suprised fans by setting free one of their favorite tracks from their live show, "West Coast Rocks". Exclusively premiered on Dancing Astronaut earlier this week. Orginally released in 2008 on the Crush Mode mixtape, "West Coast Rocks" has been flawlessly reworked to fit sonically in with the new, 2014 Glitch Mob live experience.

There is no denying the love The Glitch Mob have for their fans and in true demonstration of this, have made the 2014 mix of "West Coast Rocks" available for free download. If you love it as much as we do, give it a heart on Hype Machine HERE.
 
As Love Death Immortality enters it's third month in circulation, the album continues to receive recognition and presigious-reviews from critics around the globe. The highly-anticipated sophomore LP debuted at #13 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart and was named #1 Independent Albums, #1 Dance/Electronic Albums, and #4 Digital Albums on each of the respective charts.

Placing high-importance on the use of unqiue visuals to conicide with the music they create. The Glitch Mob has released two incredible videos for the debut singles off LDI 'Can't Kill Us' and 'Becoming Harmonious' ft Metal Mother. 'Can't Kill Us' has received over 1 million views since it's posting and has been featured in Robert Rodriguez's 'Sin City 2' trailer.

Last month, The Glitch Mob took LDI on the road as they embarked on a nationwide spring tour. The trio has developed quite the reputation through the years for stellar live performances and have continued to push their on-stage production to new heights. Their stage and visual tech wizardry is designed by the visionary Martin Phillips at Bionic League (whose work includes live performance experience design for Daft Punk, Kanye West, Deadmau5, Kaskade. They also enlisted the music tech masterminds, roboticists, and hackers at Name the Machine to create an innovative and completely unique performance technology platform. Among the myriad innovations unveiled on the tour is custom-built technology that lets the band trigger samples in real-time, and play them like live riffs, infusing their electronic music performance with improvisation, and the energy and drama of a live rock show.

With the second leg of their tour about to begin and their loyal fan-base (known as "The Mob") growing bigger each day, The Glitch Mob are well on their way to becoming a household name. Be sure to catch them live as they take their jaw-dropping new performance out west for the first time.
