Empire Of The Sun announce first UK show in three years

They'll be playing The Roundhouse in October

Empire Of The Sun have announced a one-off London gig for next month – their first UK live appearance in three years.

The Australian electro duo are gearing up to release their third album ‘Two Vines’ on 28 October, and will launch the record with a show at The Roundhouse in Camden on 13 October. Renowned for their theatrical and choreographed stage show, this will be their first UK outing since 2013.

Preceded by the comeback single ‘High And Low’, ‘Two Vines’ is the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Ice On The Dune‘ – and features members of Fleetwood Mac, as well as the former band of Prince and David Bowie.

Nick Littlemore told Pitchfork: ““There was an image we talked about very early on with this record, before we wrote the title track, ‘Two Vines,’ and that was this image of a modern city overtaken by jungle, almost like mother nature taking back the planet.”

He added: “All the buildings will turn back to sand. All it will be is nature again. We wanted to make something that reflected the beauty of that, and the wisdom that plants can give us about living harmoniously on this beautiful planet.”

Empire of The Sun play The Roundhouse in London on 13 October. Tickets are on sale from 10am on 28 September.
