Empire Of The Sun Teases A New Album With "Discovery"
The Australian mystics/electro duo Empire Of The Sun have finally announced their plans to release a sequel to their half excellent Walking On A Dream debut album, five years after it's release. Titled Ice On A Dune, the sophomore album by the group will see a release on June 2013, and we're expecting some epic music videos to accompany the lead up to that date.
Epic? Well considering that the teaser trailer for the album is directed by JJ Abrams himself, the bar is being set rather high, don't you think? The group also released a cryptic message on their website, setting up some fiction for the upcoming release. Check it out after the break.
'Archaeologists have uncovered interglacial cave paintings deep within a rock shelter in Mexico’s Guerrero Peninsula. The paintings date between 4,200 and 8,000 years ago, making them the most important finding of the millennia. The site was previously believed to be the birthplace of La Llorona, or 'The Weeping Woman.'
'This must have been a place of memory,' said Ramon Fortunato, an archaeologist at the University of Monterrey, of the site. 'The people of this region may have kept it secret, in order to harness its power.'
'Inhabitants from the area are thought to be directly related to the 'Empire of the Sun,' responsible for protecting the Earth from catastrophe for generations.
'Update: Further research has concluded that the cave is the meeting point of the leylines of synchronicity. The find has been praised by heads of state and notable scientists, and a meeting of world leaders has been called in Geneva, Switzerland.'
