The Glitch Mob really, really enjoy playing festivals. Theyre playing a handful of them this year, including a return to Lollapalooza, with whom theyve partnered up for a combination giveaway and contest.
The giveaway part is a free download of the first single from Glitch Mobs upcoming EP, We Can Make the World Stop. Entitled Warrior Concerto, the track is actually structured just like the three-part arrangement in its name. Three distinct movements follow a tense, furious violin through the bands innovative brand of glitch-hop and breakbeat. Its a musical ménage that ups the anticipation for the July 12th release of the full EP.
It also stokes the fire leading up to the trios performance at Lollapaloozas 20th anniversary, which brings us to the contest portion of the program. By entering your email to download Warrior Concerto, youll also be entered to win a grab-bag of Glitch Mob merch – including posters, T-shirts, vinyl, and CDs – plus a pair of 3-day passes to the sold out Lolla. The piÃ¨ce de résistance is that not only will you get those tickets, but youll get a special side-stage view of Glitch Mobs set on Perrys Stage on Saturday, August 6th. Ka-boom.
You can hear Warrior Concerto using the player below, but we highly suggest heading over to the official contest site to grab it yourself. Not only is it a wicked hot track, but that prize is just the tits. The contest closes July 8th, so get in while the gettings good.[audio:https://consequenceofsound.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/the-glitch-mob-warrior-concerto.mp3|titles=The Glitch Mob – “Warrior Concerto”]
