Following a prolonged hiatus, The Glitch Mob, LA-based trio Boreta (Justin Boreta), edIT (Edward Ma), and Ooah (Joshua Mayer), have returned refreshed and ready to take on a monumental 36-date world tour in 2018, including a slew of festival stops in North America.
Coming off the success of their 2014-2015 tour, featuring the distinctive custom stage creation dubbed The Blade, The Glitch Mob now announce The Blade 2.0, a meticulously designed offspring setup powered by Dell and suited to the sonic needs of the three members. Acting as an instrument in itself, with every part custom-made, The Blade 2.0 aims to break the disconnect between performer and the crowd to create a truly immersive experience. Everything has been flipped around so the crowd can see what the group are playing in real time. The custom stage is the work of pioneering set designer Martin Phillips — the man behind Daft Punk’s legendary Pyramid on their iconic Alive tour, who has also worked with Kanye West, Nine Inch Nails, and more.
If there’s anything The Glitch Mob is known for, it’s a fondness for not rushing great art. Still, fans are patiently awaiting the trio’s next album in the four years since their last LP, Love Death Immortality.
Los Angeles-based synth-pop artist Elohim and Montreal’s Anomalie will accompany the trio on tour for several dates. Tickets can be found on The Glitch Mob’s official website. Pre-sale tickets are available now using the code TGM2018. Public on-sale begins Friday, February 23, 2018.
