Deadmau5 UK Winter Tour 2010 / New song previewed live - RAISE YOUR WEAPON?

On the Radio 1 show recently, it was mentioned that Radio 1 would "team up" with Deadmau5 for a show in Glasgow.

Now, Deadmau5 has revealed a full tour for the UK this December.

The venues covered -

8th / Bournemouth - O2 Academy
9th / Leeds - O2 Academy
10th / Manchester - Manchester Central (with Zane Lowe and Magnetic Man)
12th / Coventry - Ricoh Arena (with Zane Lowe and Magnetic Man)
17th / Glasgow - Braehead Arena (with Zane Lowe, Magnetic Man, and Calvin Harris (DJ Set)) (Highlights broadcast Live on Radio 1)
18th / London - Earl's Court (with Zane Lowe, Magnetic Man and Stanton Warriors)

Notice that if you buy your ticket for one of these shows online before the 16th September, you will receive a free unreleased track "A City in Florida"...It will be interesting to see what this track is.

It could be one nobody has heard before, or one of the instrumentals such as "Moonlight Sonata Esque".

Speaking of unreleased tracks, this leads me onto my next part of the post...

Recently Deadmau5' linked on his Facebook to this video from the Rock en Seine Festival...

Notable points in the video:
00:00 - Strobe
01:25 - First part of new song
06:24 - Dubstep drop of the new song

We can guess from the lyrics that this song will be called Raise Your Weapon, however this is unconfirmed. It appears to incorporate progressive house and dubstep elements into the song, with vocals from a yet unnamed vocalist. The drums appear to be taken from dub5tepthingie4.

Also, as some new but unconfirmed news, many have said there will be a 4th Mix album before the artist album. The 4th mix album may be in November, while the artist album is in January.


  1. I heard the song in Ibza, Amnesia (Cream Ibiza) at the 26th of august. It was amazing. But this was the real preview at Amnesia.

  2. Oh yeah, just looked it up. Sorry for missing that one! Did it have dubstep with it at amnesia?

  3. Me again: ...Yes I got a Video from it too. One in the middle of the song and one of the Dubstep. I only can say it was great Live to hear.

  4. Vocalist is Sofia Toufa (aka Sofi)


  5. of course, the vocalist of Raise Your Weapon is Some Other Female Interest - Sofi Toufa (Tommy Lee's lady), and she recently pronounced "Looking forward to Deadmau5 UK Tour", so let's lookin fwd too, as i really cant fokin wait! :D
