Favorite ThisThe Glitch Mob Announce Summer Tour and New Release

Published: May 22, 2011

Releasing one of the year’s premier electronic-music albums, pursuing an epic tour schedule spanning 2 nationwide tours including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Ultra, plus tours of the U.K. and Australia– apparently all that wasn’t enough for The Glitch Mob. If anything, it’s just proven to be the beginning… The Los Angeles-based trio comprising Justin Boreta, Ed Ma, and Joshua Mayer continues their movement into 2011, gearing up to embark on a 35 date tour, starting June 23rd in North Plains, Oregon at the Re:Generation Festival. There they will perform alongside acts such as Phantogram and Com Truise who join the tour on select dates. The tour ends with a triumphant return for the Mob at this summer's Lollapalooza.  Other highlights include Sasquatch Festival, NYC's Terminal 5 and Red Rocks.

This tour will be one of the group’s most involved tours ever, debuting some of their most innovative new music yet. 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.

“After writing Drink The Sea, we spent a lot of time touring -” Boreta says. “While on the road, we were bursting with inspiration and ideas for the next phase in the evolution of our sound.” This summer finds them preparing to release some of their most groundbreaking new music with a double sided single due out on July 12th and commence on yet another tour that in its multimedia production and sonic gambits, takes everything that the band has done onstage to new levels. 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, and Kanye West and countless others. Boreta notes “We were so inspired from spending so much time on stage last year that this will be our first attempt to materialize everything we learned.”
