Empire of the Sun Book North American Tour, Play Toronto
Since releasing this year's Ice on the Dune, Aussie psych outfit Empire of the Sun have busied themselves primarily with festival gigs, but they have now confirmed plans to embark upon a proper tour of North America in September.

After a further scattering of festival gigs in the next couple of months, the band will begin playing their own headlining gigs starting at the beginning of September. They will then spend the following few weeks touring North America, making their way into Canada for a Toronto gig on September 9. See the schedule below.

In related news, we recently learned that Empire of the Sun is apparently in line to score the upcoming sequel to Dumb and Dumber.
