Previously planned for announcement during The Glitch Mob’s Drink The Sea X tour earlier this year, the trio couldn’t wait any longer to share. There’s something to be said for their sentiment within the reveal, acknowledging the impact that Drink The Sea first left on fans. As well as the influence it left on themselves. In a press release Justin Boreta reminisced on that original fan feedback, which turned into the ‘lifeblood of creativity’ for The Glitch Mob.
After [the album] sat with people for a while, something unexpected happened. People who were dealing with difficult issues started to write and tell us that the music was helping them. That it was the soundtrack to them falling in love, or getting through a breakup. It helped people cope with dark times, in the same way it had helped us. These notes became the lifeblood of our creativity. Not only did it put our own problems in perspective, but the music connected us to something much larger than ourselves. We had the greatest honor of our lives — to be there for someone else.”
Giving fans a sneak peak of what’s in store, The Glitch Mob released their remix of Nalepa’s Monday, which you can listen to here!
