Video: Empire of the Sun- Half Mast
I think I’m entitled to a late pass on this considering the day this video was released, I was roaming around 6th St in Austin somewhere. To be honest, I was actually quite surprised they released another video this year considering the album was put out in 2008. Nevertheless, I’m definitely not complaining about a new Empire of the Sun video. In usual Luke Steele fashion, the video is outlandish and eccentric, this time, against the backdrop of New York City. This is probably quite fitting considering in August they are about to make their first North American appearances with dates in LA, NYC and Toronto (see below for dates) in addition to Lollapalooza.
North American Dates
Chicago- Lollapalooza, August 6-8
Toronto, ON Sound Academy, August 8
New York, NY Terminal 5, August 9
Los Angeles, CA Henry Fonda Theatre, August 11
