The mission was simple when heavyweight bass enthusiasts Snails and Antiserum went in on one of the biggest collaborative releases of the year; to create a tune that would leave listeners jaws on the floor upon hearing the madness at hand. "Wild" delivers just that, having witnessed the aforementioned reaction firsthand when the track made its debut at Ultra Music Festival during Diplo and Skrillex's most recent Jack U performance.

The tour kicks off on August 28th in Vancouver  and will run all throughout the US and Canada ending in Miami on October 18th. He is bringing out the very talented Norwegian live electronic act Lemaitre, who will be opening up the night through the length of the tour. Although the dates are far later in the year, with his track record for live shows selling out and added excitement of the new album I wouldn't wait too long to grab tickets when they go on sale this Thursday at 10 am MST.
