Empire of the Sun Return With First Album in Five Years

It's been far too long since we've had some Empire of the Sun in our lives, and thankfully, the band feel the same way. The Australian electronic duo, who broke out in 2008 with "Walking on a Dream," has released an epic album trailer for their sophomore effort, Ice on the Dune, due out in June. 

There's very little new music in the trailer (save for a quick snippet at the end), but the band's website shares a bit of back story about the plot of the video, which features Mexican archaeologists discovering mysterious cave paintings. It makes no sense and has nothing to do with their new sound. We love it anyway.

Empire of the Sun will debut new music this week at SXSW. Check them out at Sasquatch Music Fest in May.
