Deadmau5‘s most anticipated album finally gets a title and a release date. This epic 25 track 2 disk LP we have all been waiting for gets yet another peculiar album title, keeping the trend going for peculiar album titles like 4×4=12 and >album title goes here<. While(1<2) is the name, and its meaning is simply a programming code command to indefinitely loop a track. It is no secret that Joel (deadmau5’s real name) is a computing genius. While the album was finished months ago in January as Joel announced on his Twitter account stating it is “something I’m proud of”, he recently revealed on his Live website that the official release date is this summer on the 17th of June digitally and physically a week later on the 24th.
Those words reminded and reassured his fellow fans on how immensely great this album will be. Although the album will not be released till next month, it will be available for pre-order on his Live website on the 20th of May. Those who pre-order will receive Avaritia, one of the tracks on the LP, as a preview. Those who do not, well, will just get a thirty second long teaser of the albums first single, which was originally released as part of deadmau5’s Seven Deadly Sins Soundcloud EP pack. Sign up to Deadmau5 Live to keep up with all his updates and do not forget to pre-order While(1<2) so you can be the first to hear one of the most anticipated electronic music albums of this year!
