The Glitch Mob have shown no signs of slowing down since the 2018 release of their third studio album, See Without Eyes. The LA-based trio were even included in CE‘s Top Tours of 2019 for their Alchemy tour with SLANDER, NGHTMRE, and Seven Lions as well as in our Top Singles of 2019 for their collaboration with 1788-L, “Momentary Lapse.”
As it turns out, 2020 marks the beginning of the next chapter in The Glitch Mob’s story. Justin Boreta, Ed Ma (edIT), and Josh Mayer (ooah) are welcoming the new year by celebrating a decade since the release of their debut album, Drink The Sea. To commemorate the ten-year anniversary, the trio are embarking on a massive 36-date tour across the US and Canada.
Dubbed Drink The Sea X, the tour will hit Austin, Atlanta, Brooklyn, Chicago, Seattle, Toronto, Denver, LA, and every major market in between. Fans will be treated to a special set highlighting The Glitch Mob’s musical journey, exploring their pioneering discography and timeless take on gritty electronica. Joining them on the road will be North London bass outfit, Ivy Lab.
Ticket sales will commence on Wednesday, January 15, with an exclusive artist pre-sale, with sales beginning for the general public on Friday, January 17. Tickets are available here.
An innovative sonic masterpiece from beginning to end, Drink The Sea played a pivotal role in molding the LA beat scene, as well as the ears of electronic music aficionados across the globe. Emerging out of a budding, sample-heavy musical landscape, the album was a breath of fresh air, pushing boundaries with acute analog precision (and zero samples). But it was so much more than just an album to many. The record garnered a cult following, selling over 100,000 copies, and has since cracked 200,000,000 online streams.
