DEADMAU5, DJ AM, JASON BENTLEY & DESTRUCTO

Justice
The creative team behind the HARD Summer Music Festival and HARD New Year's Eve have again upped the ante with the HARD Haunted Mansion. Guaranteed to be the premiere 2008 Halloween event in L.A. with headliners Justice (France) and Soulwax (Belgium), the grounds of the Shrine Expo Hall in downtown L.A. will be transformed into a Halloween-costumed mega-party with international all-stars Boys Noize (Germany), Crystal Castles (Canada), Simian Mobile Disco (U.K.), Deadmau5 (Canada), and Crookers (Italy). Los Angeles' cream of the crop DJ AM, Jason Bentley, and Destructo round out the non-stop indoor/outdoor event on Friday, October 31.

French duo Justice have quickly become a household name with their best-selling album Ý, outrageous videos, electrifying performances, and their monster hits "D.A.N.C.E." and "We Are Your Friends." Soulwax have proven themselves worldwide as innovative rockers, mash-up DJs and remixers extraordinaire, all documented on their upcoming DVD release. Soulwax have finally found the perfect home for their stadium-sized show with L.A.'s boundary-pushing HARD Festival and its top-notch audio-visual production.

HARD Haunted Mansion expands on the success of the HARD Summer Music Festival which attracted over 7,000 revelers on July 19 to party with N*E*R*D, MSTRKRFT, and rising stars The Bloody Beetroots. HARD Haunted Mansion is open to all ages while the music-loving 21+ set will be treated to multiple bars and upgraded open-bar VIP sections at both the indoor and outdoor stages. VIP tickets and General Admission tickets are on sale now through Groovetickets.com, Ticketmaster and select lifestyle stores.

Hailed as "the party of the year" by URB.com, HARD proved it was a powerhouse with their New Year's and Summer celebrations. "The eclectic lineup reflects the mashed-up party techno that has attracted so many rock fans," exclaimed the Los Angeles Times. Still a few questions remain for HARD Haunted Mansion; will Simian Mobile Disco join Justice on stage for "We Are Your Friends"? Will Alice Glass and Crystal Castles incite a riot? Who are the surprise guest artists? And most importantly... what costume are you wearing to the HARD Haunted Mansion?

HARD Haunted Mansion opens its doors early at 8 p.m. to ensure fast entrance; music continues until 4 a.m.

JUSTICE TO RELEASE LIVE DVD & CD, TOUR NORTH AMERICA THIS FALL
A CROSS THE UNIVERSE DROPS DECEMBER 9 ON ATLANTIC RECORDS

In other Justice news, as the duo set out to tour the U.S.A. for the second time, multi-award winning directors and intimate friends of the band, Romain Gavras ("Stress" director) and So-Me ("D.A.N.C.E.," "DVNO") taped every second of that three week tour that looks like it lasted three years. This documentary ain't about how cool Justice's live show is (the bonus CD is here for that), but is all about the extraordinary things that can happen when a bunch of frogs gets dropped in dreamy America.

A Cross The Universe, the live CD + DVD release will include recordings of Justice's signature headbanging live sets along with show footage and various hijinks captured as the band toured the U.S. in March 2008. Screenings of the film will be held in each city around the DJ sets late October.

Deadmau5 is really awesome. I'd never heard of him before I saw him at Jam on the River this year and he seriously tore shit up mid-day in 100 degree heat...the whole place was dancing like maniacs. Crystal Castles would probably be cool to see too.

I will be in attendance to this wonderful event HARD that MSTRKRFT headlined in the summer. Amazing music all around. Can't wait to dance my ass off. Also since i have to go back to cold Chicago for X-Mas through New Years I just bought my ticket to Justice on NYE! Man what a great way to wind down a ridiculous year in music.
