Justin Boreta is a founding member of The Glitch Mob. Their music has been featured in movies like Sin City II, Edge of Tomorrow, Captain America, and Spiderman.
In this post, we discuss The Glitch Mob’s path from unknown band to playing sold-out 90,000-person (!) arenas. We delve into war stories, and go deep into creative process, including never-before-heard “drafts” of blockbuster tracks! Even if you have zero interest in music, Justin discusses habits and strategies that can be applied to nearly anything. Meditation? Morning routines? We cover it all.
The Glitch Mob’s last album, Love Death Immortality, debuted on the Billboard charts at #1 Electronic Album, #1 Indie Label, and #4 Overall Digital Album. This is particularly impressive because The Glitch Mob is an artist-owned group. It’s a true self-made start-up.
