Being on tour can be an exhausting and entertaining experience at the same time. But it’s also a time full of adventures. American electro rockers THE GLITCH MOB are currently touring the planet with the enigmatic tunes from this year’s sophomore album Love Death Immortality. A high-energy-show with dirty basslines, massive drops and a certain amount of wilderness. And right in the middle of this hurricane – Edward Ma (edIT), Justin Boreta (Boreta), Josh Mayer (Ooah) who are THE GLITCH MOB. A trio that represents an electronic movement that has been far too often mistaken with dubstep, brostep or that whole ‘EDM’ circus. Unesccessary comparisons.
