In the midst of a massive 40+ show tour, The Glitch Mob return to New Orleans for the first time since 2015.
Touring on the heels of their third studio album See Without Eyes, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Dance / Electronic Album Chart last month, The Glitch Mob will perform with their friend and collaborator Elohim.
See Without Eyes is the first LP release from the group since 2015. The album is an 11-track immersive project, incorporating massive productions and mesmerizing visuals. The group will introduce their “Blade” stage technology to the Joy Theater. The Blade 2.0 has 27-inch touch screens to play their custom built instruments, along with drums influenced by Japanese Tyco.
The Glitch Mob has been successful in finding a balance between creating songs geared towards listening, while also producing tracks meant for live shows. This balance has led to a unique live show unlike anything else in dance music. The group has spent the past two years working on See Without Eyes. The album features a full visual story on Youtube: 11 songs, 11 different unique visual concepts, all following the same theme.
On the forefront of technology
Continuing to be the revolutionary artist they are, The Glitch Mob and TheWaveVR, the creator of the world’s first social virtual reality (VR) music platform, announced an upcoming VR project of the album.
The project will take users on a VR odyssey of shifting dreamscapes choreographed to a 20-minute custom mix of the album. As users fly through several environments, they can interact with each other as well as become part of the visuals. The show will be available to any Oculus Rift or HTC Vive VR headset owner through TheWaveVR’s free app, available globally on the Oculus Store and Steam, and will be broadcast live on TheWaveVR Facebook page. The free experience launches Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. PST. Watch the immersive trailer for the VR project here.
Prepare yourselves for an immersive evening of music. Tickets are still available but moving fast.
