Echosynthetic Fest Artist Focus: Glitch Black


Glitch Black is the fourth focus artist in a series of articles that cover each of the Echosynthetic Fest acts. If you’re on the fence about coming I’m hoping that these write-ups will better inform you of who is playing at the show and why you should come out and see them. Like any festival, you’ve got a set of number of artists (in this case it is 10), and you don’t always know much about every band you’re going to see. Glitch Black is coming up from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and he’s bringing an impressive live show with him. Don’t believe me? Check this out!

As you can see from the tour graphic above and the brilliant live header photo by Ryan H. Martin, Glitch Black has already played shows with Perturbator, Dance With The Dead, and Gost this year, with Echosynthetic Fest the next destination. His live show (as you can see from the video above) is a spectacle, from projected renders (he makes them himself by the way…you can find an archive of his work HERE), vertical monitor set-ups, a full LED animated power suit, and a futuristic soundtrack that is bombastic, unique, and made for the stage. In other words, once again, we have another act that is worth the price of admission alone!

As a reminder, he’s doing a big AMA over on the /r/outrun subreddit today, so get your questions ready and head over to take part! CLICK HERE for the announcement link for more details: . It kicks off at 12:00 CST (there’s a timezone converter when you follow the link so you’ll know exactly when to be on!). Beyond live shows with a who’s who list of artists, Glitch Black has also been hard at work on new material! In fact, here’s an exclusive image of his running Winamp list of in-progress material:


The $15.00 price of entry gets you access to one of synthwave’s hottest live acts in Glitch Black! But there’s more! You also get to see Majeure (AE Paterra of Zombi!) from Pittsburgh, Vampire Step-Dad from Atlanta, FacexHugger from California, 10th Letter from Atlanta, Gregorio Franco from Atlanta, Pattern Language from Colorado, Frisky Monkey from Atlanta, and Ian Deaton from Atlanta.

Beyond Echosynthetic Fest being a gathering of some of the hottest artists in synthwave and synthpop, it’s also a great opportunity to meet and hang out with other fans and artists from around the United States. We’ve got confirmed guests ranging from Seattle and Los Angeles to Boston and Minnesota, including well known synthwave artists who are coming to hang out and enjoy the Fest! But wait, there’s more! Sharing Needles With Friends Podcast are recording a documentary at the show, performing interviews with artists and fans, and capturing this gathering of synth family, known lovingly on the scene as #synthfam. Come out and join us! Tickets are still available at Freshtix!
