The Glitch Mob unveiled their first single since the release of 2014’s Love Death Immortality, which debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s independent albums chart. The release comes with an immersive new music video produced by Strangeloop Studios, the same creative force behind the live shows if artists like Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Pharrell, The Weeknd and Zeds Dead, among many others. The video’s thematic focus on self discovery is wonderfully elucidated by the creator’s futuristic graphics and animations.
The single is the first from the group’s forthcoming album, titled See Without Eyes. The trio also recently announced a massive world tour, with dates in nearly every major US city.
The Glitch Mob have finally made their glorious return. The trio made waves when they sent out a snippet of their forthcoming work via postcards which were pressed in a way which allowed them to be played on record players. Then the guys dropped news of an insane international tour. Now we finally get to
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.

Lightning in a Bottle’s strive for diversity in its programming can be best summed in music director and co-founder Jesse Flemming’s words:
“We’re definitely not trying to play the same game we are seeing with all the massive festivals these days when we book our music programming. Forget the big names you can see at 10 other festivals this year. For us the goal is to craft a musical playlist that will perfectly guide people along the experience we’re trying to create. We book each stage to be its own separate journey on any given day and we try to diversify it as much as possible so when you’re wandering around during the weekend you can always find something just right for you. This has been our goal since day one and it continues to shape how we book today.”
More information and tickets to Lightning in a Bottle, which go on-sale January 18 at 10 am PST, are available here.

An interesting new trio is popping up in California, with a fresh house music sound to back them. Melody weaver Zu’ri, nimble songstress Zu’CH3N, and frequency shaper Zu’Ian combine to make a group called Eko Zu. Confessing to being the only known example of Animal-Human hybrid evolution, this group definitely has an interesting brand behind their
Alongside their lineup announcement, Camp Questionmark issued the following statement:
“After 14 years on the playa, everything we have worked so hard at, as a Camp, has led us to this point. This is the culmination of creators & artists coming together to do something completely for the love of it, rather than monetary gain. We are overwhelmingly humbled and grateful to be giving you this gift to the playa. For what is undoubtingly our biggest year at Burning Man yet! Thank you to everyone that’s been down for the camp in any way up to now.”
Camp Questionmark’s “biggest year at Burning Man yet” is as impressive as one might expect, boasting a lineup that any transformational event producer would covet.
