You might remember we love The Presets, as Arnald Babar announced the release of their new album Apocalypso a couple months back. Well, since then the duo from Oz have rolled on to become the Best Selling local act of Australia in 2008 (moving almost 100,000 albums), have sold out a tour across the US, and spent the summer playing festivals like the UK’s V Festival, Glastonbury, T in The Park, Norway’s Øya Festival, France’s Pantiero Festival and a triumphant homecoming headline slot at Australia’s Splendour in The Grass.

Now they’re returning to the US with another slate of 30-odd dates with co-headliners and Modular labelmates Cut Copy (all Tour Dates after the Jump). To celebrate their return to North America, The Presets are releasing the third single from Apocalypso, “Talk Like That”, along with requisite video — directed by the red-hot Jonas and Francois (e.g. Justice’s cool-as-fuck “D.A.N.C.E.” video and Kanye’s “Stronger”).

Remixes come courtesy of “Jence” Moelle (Digitalism), Dave Spoon, Felix, Optimo and Miami Horror.

Peep the Miami Horror Mix here:

Plenty of goodies like Tour Dates, the video for “Talk Like That”, and the Jonas and Francois-directed videos for Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.” and Kanye West’s “Stronger” (just cos we love you) after the Jump…
