on March 10, 2014, 7:35pm

After staying relatively quiet for most of 2013, Skrillex is back and ready to boogie. Today, he’s dropped dates for “The Mothership Tour”, a massive North American jaunt that includes headlining shows and festival appearances through the end of August. Consult the full schedule below.

Skrillex has also unveiled a mysterious new app entitled “Alien Ride”. Available for Apple and Droid, it contains a folder of 11 hidden objects and a countdown to today, March 10th, at 6:30pm EDT. As FACT points out, those 11 objects may, in fact, be the tracks that comprise Skrillex’s debut album.

Update: The rumors were true: the app has revealed tracks from Skrillex’s new album, Recess. The album is also streaming in full via iTunes.

Due out March 18th via OWSLA/Big Beat/Atlantic, the 11-track effort contains collaborations with Chance the Rapper, Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, The Ragga Twins, Diplo, and more.

Below, listen to the amazingly titled “All Is Fair In Love And Brostep” featuring The Ragga Twins.
