Major Lazer announces “Tour of Duty”

placeholder image

Last week, we introduced you to Major Lazer, the brand new collaboration of DJs Diplo and Switch. Today, we present you information on how you can take in the sounds of the band’s upcoming LP, Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do, up close and personal.

In support of their debut full-length, Diplo and Switch will embark on a rather eclectic North American tour beginning in June. We say eclectic because of the 11 North American dates, four are part of Bacardi B-Live and one, the August 7th date at Chicago’s Congress Theater, looks to be a Lollapalooza aftershow. Then, there’s the October 31st show at The Forum in Los Angeles, aka HARD Haunted Mansion.

Talk about covering your bases.

Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do hits record shelves on June 16th via Downtown/Mad Decent.
