When The Glitch Mob released their debut album Drink The Sea in 2010, they unleashed a pioneering industrial sound upon the electronic music scene that would stick with fans forever. Since then they’ve remained at peak relevancy with two subsequent albums — Love Death Immortality (2014) and See Without Eyes (2018) — while also bringing their innovative stage production to live audiences via The Blade.
Now, in honor of the full decade that’s passed since their debut album, The Glitch Mob just announced their Drink The Sea tour for 2020, with support from Ivy Lab! The announcement includes a slew of U.S. dates. Pacific Northwest stops include Boise, Portland, and Seattle on the 13th, 14th, and 15th respectively. Presale tickets start on January 15th at 10:00 AM. Watch the teaser trailer for the Drink The Sea tour below!
What’s in store for concert-goers?
Judging by the song choice in the teaser trailer (Fortune Days) and the nature of the tour, it’s pretty clear that the content of the live show will surround throwbacks from their 2010 era. How will they incorporate The Blade in this performance, and will there be any upgrades to it?
Another mystery is whether or not they’ll delve into some of their new stuff. Towards the end of 2019, the trio began releasing collaborations with some up-and-coming bass music artists. Songs include System Bleed with LICK, Lazer Vision with Zeke Beats, and Momentary Lapse with 1788-L.
Regardless, The Glitch Mob live performances are something you can’t miss. Check out the above-linked demonstration of The Blade to see a reason why. And take a look at the full tour roster and grab your presale tickets here!
