ARIA award winners Empire Of The Sun have just announced they’re set to released their sophomore album ‘Ice On The Dune’ in June.
The concept album is set 1000 years into the future where Luke Steele aka Emperor Steele and Nick Littlemore aka Lord Little face an unprecedented challenge in their bid to restore peace to the world.
The duo formed in 2008 and went onto to release ‘Walking On A Dream’ which went on to sell a million-plus copies worldwide, spawning the singles ‘We Are The People’, ‘Walking On A Dream’, ‘Standing on the Shore’, ‘Without You’ and ‘Half-Mast’. The debut album went on to win 8 ARIA awards (including Album of The Year), 2 BRIT nominations (including Best International Album), and many other accolades.
Empire Of The Sun became equally known for their colourful and creative music videos, having chalked up a total in excess of 40 million YouTube views. This time around, the duo have taken their vision to another level as seen in the trailer (entitled ‘Discovery’) for the forthcoming album which was revealed today.
