Major Lazer Announces Summer Tour

Text
With their debut album, Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do, out June 16, long-time DJ collaborators and producers Diplo and Switch are gearing up to bring their new beats throughout the U.S. and Europe this Summer.

The album, named after "a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984," features several guests including Vybz Cartel, Amanda Blank, and Santigold. M.I.A. was rumored to be a guest on the album as well, but it seems that that particular collaboration never came to fruition.

2. When You Hear The Bassline [ft. Ms. Thing]
3. Can't Stop Now [ft. Mr. Vegas and Jovi Rockwell]
4. Lazer Theme [ft. Future Trouble]
5. Anything Goes [ft. Turbulence]
6. Cash Flow [ft. Jah Dan]
