We're guessing that this *could* be the name of his upcoming artist album which could possibly be released this year, probably at some point during or after this tour. This could also pave the way for deadmau5 to return to Europe and the UK for a tour as well, be this is all speculation at present.

Next is the news that Ultra Records (at the moment) are releasing a DVD on 5th July of the footage of deadmau5's record-breaking gig at Earl's Court, London from December last year.

'Raise Your Weapon' has been remixed by Noisia and Stimming which will be released along with the original and radio edit of the song on 23rd May in the US. There is also a remix by French producer Madeon which will be included on the Beatport release.

There is a new version of deadmau5's Touch Mix app for iOS which will have the functionality to remix deadmau5 songs and win a custom deadmau5 iPad. This is released the same day as the 'Raise Your Weapon' EP. There is also a competition for fans to submit designs of the mau5head to win prizes, with more details coming soon. The competition launches on 27th May.

We're also going to take the time to mention an amazing blog for all things deadmau5 and mau5trap, Mau5 It Up. They do a great job on covering everything mau5-related so you should check them out!
