EMPIRE OF THE SUN ANNOUNCE THREE EXCLUSIVE TOUR DATES FOR THE “WALKING ON A DREAM” TOUR NORTH AMERICAN LIVE DEBUT
(New York, NY)—In support of their album Walking On A Dream, Empire Of The Sun is proud to announce three exclusive North American tour dates in August in addition to Lollapalooza. Released just last year on Astralwerks, Walking On A Dream’s success has remained unstoppable.
· 7 ARIA Award wins in Australia including Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Best Group and Best Pop Release
· Two Brit Award nominations in February
· An appearance on Jay-Z’s latest album
· Double-Platinum status at home in Australia, Gold status in the UK, and a chart hit worldwide
The electro- psychedelic project is led by Luke Steele, the enigmatic wunderkind behind Australia’s The Sleepy Jackson. Exotic, lavish, larger-than-life, Walking On A Dream is a bold, visionary and quite brilliant album, which manages to sound exhilaratingly contemporary, audaciously forward-looking, yet also curiously archaic all at once. The singles “Walking On A Dream”, “We Are The People”, “Standing On The Shore” and “Without You” feature a groundbreaking aesthetic of electronic beats, pop melodies and psychedelic overtones.
