We are very excited to announce that amidst many Skateboarding, BMX and Moto X competitions, and even some Major League Gaming, The Glitch Mob will be performing at the one and only X Games in Austin this year June 4-7, alongside Nicki Minaj, Pennywise, Talib Kweli, Kid Ink, & more. Tickets are on sale now at http://xgames.com/tickets. Furthermore, due to popular demand after 2013’s sold out performance, LA’s electronic/rock trio will be returning for the third time to what is arguably the most beautiful venue in the world, Colorado’s Red Rocks, for HARD Red Rocks, playing alongside Skrillex side project Dog Blood and Porter Robinson.
Before their spring dates kick off, The Glitch Mob will be heading into new territory to the far east, performing alongside Pretty Lights at MTV’s new SPIRO party in Mumbai, India, which is going to be a 4 day long urban takeover celebrating both local and global music, comedy, and film. As previously announced, they will also be playing two sure-to-be-unforgettable co-headlining dates with Chromeo in California, at the Santa Barbara Bowl and LA’s legendary Greek Theater.
Check the full list of spring tour dates below for more info and ticket links.
Coming off the release of their critically acclaimed Love Death Immortality LP last year, which reached #13 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #1 on the iTunes Independent and Dance charts, and last month’s Love Death Immortality Remixes, which was called “the sort of record that keeps you in the club until the lights come on” by Vice Thump, The Glitch Mob have been hard at work in the studio since their North American Fall Tour, and will soon be unleashing some new musical surprises for their fans.

MORE ABOUT THE GLITCH MOB
The Glitch Mob – the Los Angeles-based trio comprising Justin Boreta, Ed ‘edIT’ Ma, and Joshua ‘Ooah’ Mayer – continues their forward movement into 2015, embarking on their ninth year since their 2006 formation. Together, they have combined their skills and aesthetics into the compellingly collaged whole that has become one of the most beloved live electronic acts, and distinctive recording artists, working today.
Together, this supergroup trio of instrumentalist/producers created another chart topping album in Love Death Immortality, which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album also stands as an ideal follow up to The Glitch Mob’s 2010 debut full length LP, Drink The Sea. That album proved the group’s breakout. Having spent spent numerous weeks atop the iTunes’ Electronic chart and remained in its top 10, nearly three years after its release. Drink The Sea would go on to sell over 80,000 copies and counting.
Their live show is a stunning electronic music performance infused with the energy and drama of a live rock show. Their stage and visual production was designed by the visonary Martin Phillips and his team at Bionic League (whose work included live performance experience design for Daft Punk, Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Kanye West), and features the addition of what The Glitch Mob lovingly refers to as the fourth member of their group and “a physical representation of the music”, named “The Blade”.
