Over the past week, Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten have been hinting at some big news. Both have tweeted out different versions of this mysterious photo: 

Wow! They look like they're ready for battle!

Markus finally announced that it was the beginning of a new project with Ferry Corsten, called "New World Punx."

Part of the NWP story reads on the website as "Each one is a superstar DJ and producer in his own right, but the Netherlands’ Ferry Corsten and the U.S.’s Markus Schulz put on a show so electrifying that the impact is greater than the sum of its parts. What began as a few spontaneous DJ sets between good friends and collaborators has grown into a hybrid stage persona after which discerning EDM fans lust."

In case you were wondering where the name came from, it hails from one song from each DJ: Markus Schulz's "The New World," and Ferry Corsten's "Punk."

Based on what they've already accomplished together, we can only expect amazing things from New World Punx. Aside from their back to back sets, they've created some of the dance floor's hottest tunes including, "Loops & Tings" and "Stella." And they're not stopping there. More NWP originals are on the way!

Markus & Ferry will officially kick off New World Punx with shows in Miami (during Miami Music Week), New York City at the iconic Madison Square Garden when they are in town for A State of Trance 600 - The Expedition, and in Montreal, Canada.
