What a year 2014 has already been for electronic-rock supergroup The Glitch Mob. Following the release of their sophomore LP Love Death Immortality which debuted at #13 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart, was named #1 Independent Album + Dance/Electronic Album on the Billboard Charts, and has sold over 50,000 copies to date, TGM announce new fall tour dates as they continue to showcase their "Muscular synthetic beats and an almost Black Sabbath-like love of mesmerizing bass lines," (Los Angeles Times) on a global scale.
With back-to-back sold out performances at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium, a sold out hometown show at Los Angeles' Club Nokia, top-billing festival slots at Ultra Music Festival, Coachella (where their set was deemed one of the 50 best things by Rolling Stone) Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and more, the trio shows no signs of slowing down this fall as they embark on a massive North American Tour kicking off October 3 at Austin's City Limits.
Supporting talents The M Machine and Chrome Sparks will join The Glitch Mob as they unveil their rock-infused live performance to brand new cities nationwide including Houston, Kansas City, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C. and more. Due to popular demand the trio will also return to Boston, Portland, Philadelphia and New York- where they will headline their largest NYC venue to date, the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom on November 1.

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.
