From there, they gained more notoriety with the release of their third album, Peace is the Mission n 2015. Their most successful title to date, it had peaked at number twelve on the Billboard 200; not only that, but the album had also charted in other countries around the world such as Belgium, Canada, and France, among others. Some standout songs from the playlist include Lean On (with DJ Snake), Powerful, and Light It Up (Remix).
In addition to the above-mentioned albums, the group has also come out with four extended plays, the latest of which (i.e. Know No Better) was released in the summer of 2017. Some of the other EPs include Original Don, Lazers Never Die, and Apocalypse Soon. In 2013, they also dropped four remix albums- Lazer Strikes Back Vol. 1 to 4.
