With the help of Martin Phillips at Bionic League (whose work includes live performance experience design for Daft Punk, Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Kanye West) and the music tech masterminds at Name the Machine, TGM have pushed their live production and performance to all new heights this year. "A physical representation of the music" named The Blade joins The Glitch Mob on stage as custom-built technology allows the band to trigger samples in real-time and play them like live riffs, infusing their electronic music performance with the energy and drama of a live rock show.
The Glitch Mob will close out their run of the North American festival circuit this summer with performances at Chicago's Lollapalooza and Montreal's Osheaga Festival before heading back to Europe for the second time this year. Featuring an all-star string of show dates that includes stops at the world-renowned Reading and Leeds Festivals, The Glitch Mob's momentous return overseas is sure to be filled with more blade-infused beat-barrages and even bolder synth patterns than ever before.
"The group's grandiose and epic style has inspired thousands, super-charging them with a new fuel for taking on challenges...The Glitch Mob created space for [a] special internal bond that they've sculpted, a group mentality around their own principles and metrics for success."- The Huffington Post UK
"Day one [Coachella] saw Glitch Mob absolutely destroy with dayglo synths, speaker-bursting low end and relentless beat barrages, not to mention face melting, arena-ready visuals." - Rolling Stone
"With a devotion to muscular synthetic beats and an almost Black Sabbath-like love of mesmerizing bass lines, Los Angeles beat trio Glitch Mob have been crafting jumbo dubstep-inspired tracks for the last eight years. The group's new record is its most subtle, even if its crescendos are just as heavy-fisted. Featuring tracks with titles including "Mind of a Beast," "Our Demons," "Skull Club" and "Fly by Night Only," the record teems with strange voice manipulations even as it toys with standard song structure. This isn't the most nuanced music, but it sure drives the fans in the pit batty."- LA Times
"Love Death Immortality offers sonically complex beatscapes with a heavy dose of aggression, reflecting the group's influences of Portishead, Nine Inch Nails and Tool, but still wholly its own."- Billboard
"The Glitch Mob's new album, "Love Death Immortality," is so robust and dynamic that it deserves a subgenre atag all its own. How about "rock-and-roll?"
- The Washington Post
"The Glitch Mob take EDM/rock fusion further than anyone...monumentally scaled and monumentally gleaming."- SPIN
"Love Death Immortality is at once massive and refined- a throtting bass sucket punch with enlightened tendencies."- LA Weekly
"The men of The Glitch Mob made Love Death Immortality into a glittering, butch, fast-paced bit of bass-driven electro touched by the not-so-nuanced elements of synth-screechy noise, riff rock, and pop-hop, with the whole tamale sounding like a head-charging, biker-gang version of Depeche Mode."- The Philadelphia Inquirer
