Empire Of The Sun have been creating futuristic dreamscapes for over a decade now. The release of their debut album, Walking On A Dream, teleported their unique blend of electro-pop and glam-rock—and overall otherworldly aesthetic—to the states in 2009.
Now, a decade later, the duo is celebrating their golden year with a 16-date Decade Anniversary Tour, following the release of a special-edition Walking On A Dream vinyl reissue, which includes a previously-unreleased song, “Crysalis.”
The duo plan to take the 10-year anniversary tour across many cities throughout the U.S. this Summer that include Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The U.S. portion of the tour will close out at the historic 1,200-capacity Fonda Theatre in L.A. on June 29th + 30th. Two Europe dates have also been announced, in London on July 9 and Paris on July 10.
As Billboard best described: “The duo’s landmark debut album Walking on a Dream helped define a generation. The album’s shimmering euphoria danced over driving rhythms on the album’s wildly-popular title track and weaved through a kaleidoscope of colors and moods throughout its 10 beautiful tunes. The special 10-year anniversary rerelease is set to transparent blood orange vinyl and comes with a code to download the duo’s latest unreleased track, “Chrysalis.'”
