    It's just a publicity stunt.

    Do you think so? I'd bet it's just Littlemore not wanting to work with Steel any more and going about it in a childish way. Luke Steel has quite the reputation for being incredibly difficult to work with, legend has it that the Sleepy Jackson went through over 40 members in their early days because of this. There were a couple points during their set at Coachella '04 when I thought the drummer and guitarist might throw down their instruments and quit right then.

    What the crap? Three dates?

    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 including 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
    * Extensive music placement in TV shows such as: 90201, Entourage, Melrose Place, The City and Ugly Betty plus placement in ads for Vizio and Ralph Lauren



    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.

    Empire Of The Sun’s debut live shows were a talking point across the globe and you can view a snippet of them here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_ja0-lHgE8

    “Luke Steele promised to deliver a show that was larger than life, and indeed he did.” –Cairns Post (Australia)

    “…brilliantly did the unthinkable by bringing real, rich art to a dance party.” Sydney Morning Herald

    “Hot pink square guitars and men in full laboratory jumpsuits were what I spotted on stage, and I knew we were in for something special. Sure enough, when Luke Steele hit the stage his world of dreams exploded with him and I witnessed one of the most stunning debut live performances ever. Beautiful lights, otherworldly video projections, and Luke with his spiky headware and flanked by four costumed dancers, taking to the stage. Pitch perfect, he ran through Empire of the Sun's debut album with costume changes, heavy beats, and a world of intergalactic colour and light filling the stage. The dancers changed costumes almost every song. I pondered to a friend if this was the work of a genius art director but no, this is what is inside Luke Steele's head. Empire of the Sun put so much into their maiden voyage into live performance, and it blew me away.” Zan Rowe, Triple J

    Empire Of The Sun US Tour Dates:

    August 7 Chicago Lollapalooza – Grant Park- Perry’s World Stage-currently on sale
    August 8 Toronto Sound Academy - on sale 4/30 @ 10am
    August 9 New York, NY Terminal 5 - on sale 4/30 @ 12pm

    Whhhhaaaaaaaat? I'm pissed Lolla gets this. Any news on who they're touring with?

    NME had an article in January about Luke Steele coming out with another Empire Of The Sun + a Sleepy Jackson + "punk rock" album.

    Couldn't find any other threads actively discussing these guys...



    I saw them at the Music Box in Hollywood last year and they fuckin jammed. The visuals/costumes were legit. Very excited to see them again.

    FYI, did you know it's only 2 dudes? Only one of the dudes, Nick Littlemore, doesn't even tour with the other guy, Luke Steele.
    U MAD?

    Luke did have a full backing band though. The live show he puts on is seriously badass.
