With an extremely detailed and hands on marketing scheme, the enigmatic & flamboyant, Duo of Empire of the Sun returns in all of its glory. With a pop-up listening party at SXSW, and now with a series of teasers to hype their coming album, Ice On The Dune, due out in June of this year. All four unlockable teasers are being revealed at both the Empire of The Sun official website, and (sans only the first so far...) a chosen music blog for each. And you get to use a decoder wheel if you really want to get into it.

The first, a trailer-style video, titled "Discovery (Trailer)", depicts an archaeological dig on the Guerrero peninsula, in which cave paintings showing "empire of the sun" are discovered, a snippet of new music is played, and the EOS boys (Luke Steele & Nick Littlemore) are shown in full regalia.

The second, (revealed on Channel [V] & a code to unlock a series of four high-res "cave paintings", showing a part of the story of told by the new album), and third (revealed on NME, & another code, unlocking a series of 4 .gif images showing another part of the story), are now available to see, with 2 more coming in April.

They always have plenty of sicky art fa sho.
