While numerous outlets such as NPR and The New York Times have lauded The Glitch Mob for their unique live performances, according to The Mob’s Justin Boreta, “Partnering with Lollapalooza to premiere our newest single just seemed like a natural fit. What really triggered the decision is the cool add-ons Lollapalooza’s website implemented for fan interaction.”
“Known for its live performances, which fuse electronic and live instrumentation, the group works in elements of hip-hop, breakbeat and electro into their compositions.” NPR
Lollapalooza’s eclectic lineup reflects the varying sensibilities of The Glitch Mob fans, who appreciate everything from hip hop to electro beat, dubstep, innovative rock, indie rock, jam bands, and beyond. Similar Minds: The Glitch Mob will be playing on Perry Farrell’s stage on August 6th.
Other than festivals, this tour sees The Glitch Mob headlining their largest venues to date. The first two headlining club shows – San Francisco’s Regency and San Diego’s Belly Up both sold out advance. In addition, a performance at Electric Daisy Carnival warranted interviews with outlets as diverse as the newsworthy Wall Street Journal and NPR, plus the indie-hipster international bible, Spin Magazine and tastemaker blog The Music Ninja.
“The Glitch Mob, one of very few acts to include live instruments, sometimes pounded on three sets of drums to push its hip-hop remixes even further into bass-heavy foreboding.”
