"If our last album was introverted, then the new one is definitely extroverted ," Justin Boreta explains of one of 2014's most anticipated electronic-music albums: The Glitch Mob's Love Death Immortality, to be released February 11, 2014. Boreta represents one -third of The Glitch Mob's core members, alongside Ed Ma (aka edIT) and Joshua Mayer (aka Ooah). Together, this supergroup trio of instrumentalist/producers have in Love Death Immortality created the ideal follow-up to The Glitch Mob's 2010 debut full-length LP, Drink The Sea. That album proved the group's breakout: Drink The Sea spent numerous weeks atop the iTunes' Electronic chart – and still remains in its top 10, nearly three years since its release. Put out completely independently on the group's own Glass Air imprint (which will also handle Love Death Immortality), Drink The Sea would go on to sell over 80,000 copies and counting.
In the wake of the success of Drink The Sea and its 2011 follow-up EP We Can Make The World Stop , the group propelled to the upper echelon of dance-music touring acts. In addition to key spots on major-festival lineups spanning Coachella and Lollapalooza to Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra, The Glitch Mob also headlined their own major tours across the U.S., Europe, and Australia – selling out prestigious venues ranging from New York's Terminal 5 to Colorado's legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. It was that experience on the road that led to the bold, inviting approach infusing The Glitch Mob's new material. "Drink The Sea was a personal, introspective, headphone-listening experience, whereas we wanted our second album to be a record made to be played live," Ma notes. "After touring for two years, we learned what worked best on stage. It's our same sensibility, but designed to bang on a festival sound system in front of 50,000 people." "We spent a couple years soaking up the fans' reaction to our live show, and Love Death Immortality is what came out of that," Boreta adds. "
