If you’ve ever wondered why we love to feature The Glitch Mob so often, this video clip should explain things perfectly. Outside of creating epic and astounding music that pushes the boundaries of EDM, The Glitch Mob still aren’t satisfied with what they’re doing.

After releasing their sophomore album (2014’s Love Death Immortality) the trio of edIT, Boreta, and Ooah knew they could take things further.

In order to “do justice to the music” The Glitch Mob embarked on a mission to redefine what a live EDM experience can be.

This eventually ended with the creation of a one-of-a-kind improv-ready performance rig to take their live experience to new heights.

Calling this concoction The Blade, The Glitch Mob’s new live rig consists of collections integrated hardware, software, live instruments, audiovisual cues, and more to bring life to their music. By infusing live instruments, iPads, midi controllers, and everything under the sun to make a custom designed, improv-ready audiovisual setup they’re hoping to up the ante and create a truly transcendental live performance experience.

If all of the technical talk doesn’t impress than this should: The Glitch Mob financed the entire project themselves.

Because that The Glitch Mob is an independent band, all of the funding for the project came from the group. Not from a major label. Not from a group of executives. The funding came from their own pockets.

They set out on the journey to create The Blade unsure if their vision could even be realized, but they took the risk to advance the overall experience for their fans.

The commitment to their art is truly humbling.

With the self-proclaimed desire to inspire and uplift, The Glitch Mob has taken those ideas straight to heart and it’s evident in The Blade documentary. By risking everything to push the boundaries of their performance, they’re undoubtedly moving forward to create the next frontier in live EDM.

The message in this documentary is resoundingly clear: pushing boundaries in order to create something beautiful and inspire others. The Glitch Mob definitely did what they set out to do, now will you?
