The Glitch Mob get, gone, and go Global! The Glitch Mob get, gone, and go Global!

 

The Glitch Mob certainly have no time to rest.  Since their May 25th release of their debut album, Drink The Sea, the trio completed a triumphant 6 week tour, selling out venues from 800-1500 capacity in cities such as Chicago, NY, and Boston. And while on one hand they're conquering audiences of all kinds at festivals  such as Coachella, they're slamming the dance crowds at  Lightening in a Bottle and Ultra Fest and then jamming with friends  The Disco Bisquits at Red Rocks. Indeed, The Glitch Mob continue to turn heads left, right and center while captivating thousands along their futuristic psychedelic hip hop journey.

Although it was given away as a free download, Drink The Sea managed to reach #5 on the iTunes Album Chart and while the album peaked at #2 on Itunes electronic chart sandwiched in between LCD Soundsystem and Crystal Castles.  It debuted at #15 on Billboard's Dance Chart and The Mob were the #1 Most Added on CMJ RPM Charts debuting in the Top 10.  After making their debut at #115 on CMJ's Top 200 Chart within 1 week's time they jumped up to #57.   Since the start of their tour they've gained over 15,000 new friends on Facebook and have earned their first national cover story for the highly regarded Electronic Musician Magazine where they talk about what they know best, music, technology and their passion for creating sounds that no one has heard before.

And so ends Round 1 for The Glitch Mob.  Now they set their sights oversees as they revisit the UK where they last played with mates Pendulum this past winter. The Mob are gearing up to share the stage with all sorts of noisemakers  including a stint in Amsterdam w/ Chromeo followed by The Wireless Festival w/ Jay Z, UNKLE, DJ Shadow, Snoop Dogg, 2 Many DJ's + LCD Soundsystem.  Then it's off to Brighton w/ Gaslamp Killer and long time fan Mary Anne Hobbs, before they return to London with Gonjasufi  and The Mad Professor.  Belgium's Dourfest will certainly be the climatic ending with  Devendra Banhart, Mayor Hawthorne, Spoon, Uffie, A-Trak, Faith No More, Simian Mobile Disco and a more.
