After an album teaser campaign that can only be rivalled by Daft Punk, Australian electronic duo Empire Of The Sun have finally confirmed that the first single off upcoming sophomore album Ice On The Dune, titled Alive, will be out next Tuesday, 16th April, also revealing that the album itself will be released Friday, 14th June, two weeks after they premiere the entire shebang at Vivid LIVE.
The Walking On A Dream hitmakers have been releasing teaser clues for the album for the last month, including the Discovery trailer and a series of hieroglyphics for savvy puzzlers to decode, which were released via 3 different media outlets in 3 countries, either delighting fans or driving them slowly bonkers.
The confirmed album and single date follows news that the band will headline Vivid LIVE 2013 at Sydney Opera House on Thursday, 30th May and Friday, 31st May.
You can check out the motion poster promoting the single below, and gaze in awe at its beauty for the next week until Alive drops.
