The Glitch Mob are an electronic power trio that hails from Los Angeles. However, they are more than just well known outside their home sphere, as the band has developed a shining reputation as a successful live act across the world. The Glitch Mob have built a massive following through their inventive light show and stage antics, and are now selling out large capacity venues across the nation. The thing that makes this particular group so fascinating is that unlike many of their laptop wielding contemporaries, these young synth lords actually perform all of their songs live, usually accompanied by intricate lighting rigs and beautiful Cirque Du Soleil trained aerielists. The Glitch Mob has also injected themselves into pop culture through having their songs featured in various video games, trailers for major films like the new Captain America movie and Tim Burton’s “9”, as well as numerous television show trailers including FX’s Damages as well as the upcoming Sparticus commercial for Starz. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about the FIAT commercial currently airing across the world of which “Warrior Concerto” (one of the songs from their recent release – We Can Make The World Stop EP) is featured. On the fifth season of the NBC show America’s Got Talent, one of the contestants, a dance group known as “Fighting Gravity,” performed their act to music predominately provided by The Glitch Mob. The group made it to the final episode as runner’s up (a choice not well received by the public).
The group’s 2010 debut album, Drink The Sea, debuted atop the iTunes Electronic Chart (as well as numerous other services across the world), where it has maintained within the top 10 best selling electronic albums since its release, popping in and out of the top spot every now and then. The album’s debut led to major press outlets around the world to herald and support the band (press clippings available upon request). Their remixes (check out their Daft Punk “Derezzed” remix, the first song on Disney’s Tron/Daft Punk remix album which hit #1 on the iTunes over-all charts) and songs, constantly land them the #1 spot atop Hype Machine’s “Most Popular” charts. “We Can Make The World Stop” is off the band’s new We Can Make The World Stop EP, which just hit online retailers and independent record stores across the world (yes, they press vinyl and support independent retailers). The band is currently on their US tour in support of the record on what is nearly a fully sold out tour! October and November finds them over-seas conquering Europe.
