Empire of the Sun are touring Australia this year.

The beloved Australian electronic duo of Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore return home to perform at the Hordern Pavilion, Sydney on Thursday, October 24th, before Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne on Saturday, October 26th then onto Riverstage, Brisbane on Tuesday, October 29th before a west coast show at Red Hill Auditorium, Perth on Friday, November 1st.

The pair can’t wait to return home.

“Australia, we’re coming home. Empire cannot wait to see you all. Get ready, this is gonna be a wild ride as we embark on a journey unlike any other Empire has been on. New record, new show, new era, let’s go!” they share.

Empire of the Sun will be touring in support of their forthcoming album, Ask That God, set for release on Friday, July 26th. Their fourth studio album and their first album in eight years features the previously released singles “Changes” and “Music On The Radio”. 

Ask That God is the long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Two Vines, which reached the top 10 of the ARIA Albums Chart.

Empire of the Sun may have been absent on the album front for a while, but they’ve left an indelible mark on music over the years. Steele and Littlemore’s project has sold over 5.5 million albums worldwide, accumulating a hugely impressive 7.6 billion streams along the way. They have eight ARIA Awards and two APRA Awards to their name, while their debut album, Walking on a Dream, went triple platinum in Australia.

Empire of the Sun haven’t been completely absent since Two Vines. They joined forces with Littlemore’s other musical project, PNAU, last year for the sparkling single “AEIOU”.
