Based on the J.G. novel of the same name, Empire of the Sun was created several years after Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore met through their record label. Both were pursuing solo careers, but decided to join forces in 2006. Their debut album, and single, "Walking on a Dream" was an immediate hit on both the albums and singles charts. Rolling Stone magazine hailed the album as "gorgeously plaintive electro-pop" and the they earned the fourth slot on the BBC's Sound of 2009 poll.
Since making it big, Empire of the Sun tour dates were scheduled across Australia and at several international fairs including the Parklife Music Festival. In 2010, Empire of the Sun performed at Lollapalooza in Chicago and they hit the studio to record the follow-up. While we wait for their hotly anticipated sophomore effort, Empire of the Sun tour dates are currently scheduled internationally at select venues.
