There are no earthly limits for M83, the celestial French electronic all-stars who have enjoyed immense crossover success with Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. Following a gold single, a sold-out tour, and major film score victories, Anthony Gonzalez and co. set their sights on cross-promotional design, becoming the latest musical innovators to announce the debut of their own Converse sneaker, already available online now. The customized Chuck Taylors feature a pixelated interstellar pattern, along with the band's name scrawed in constellation form.

M83's collaboration with Converse also offers artistic fans a chance to have their own Hurry Up-inspired designs featured on limited-edition posters. Between now and July 31st, candidates can submit their original work to M83Contest@Converse.com in the form of a .jpg file 2MB or smaller (you can also enter on Instagram with the #M83Converse hashtag). M83's three chosen winners will have their creations featured on posters to be sold at the band's sold-out August 8th Summerstage show.
