The latest hieroglyphic puzzle offering fans an insight into the new album from Empire Of The Sun is being revealed by NME today (March 22). Scroll down to see the new image now.

Reportedly discovered on the walls of the 'Royal Antechamber', a new message written in the ancient script is believed to offer fans insight directly from The Emperor, with sources reporting that the underlined phrase is the key to understanding what exactly what he has to say. Empire Of the Sun previously teased a different hieroglyphic earlier this week.

The image, which you can see below and click to enlarge, was first seen in the trailer for the band's new album 'Ice On The Dune' when it was revealed earlier this month. Said to be "thousands of years old" (but we're sceptical!), the hieroglyphic is written in a secret language used only in the band's mythical Empire. A decoder key which will help fans understand what the message means can be found on Empire of the Sun's official site.

Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore will return in the summer with their second album, the follow up to 2008's 'Walking On A Dream'. A press release for the album claims, "Emperor Steele and Lord Littlemore face an unprecedented challenge in their bid to restore peace to the world, 1,000 years into the future."

Empire Of The Sun are confirmed to headline UK festival Wilderness in August alongside Tribes, King Krule and Noah And The Whale.
