Apocalypso is the second studio album by Australian electronic duo The Presets, originally released in April 2008 via Modular Recordings.

The Presets are an electronic music duo consisting of Australian musicians Julian Hamilton (vocals, keyboards) and Kim Moyes (drums, keyboards).

Formed in 2003 and signed to Modular Records, The Presets released two EPs (Blow Up, Girl and the Sea) in advance of their debut album, Beams, released in 2005 to positive critical response.

After two years of touring, including as the Australian support for Daft Punk, the band's 2008 release, Apocalypso, debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart, and went on to win six awards at ARIA Awards 2008, including Album of the Year.

In 2009 Hamilton and Moyes won an APRA Award for Songwriters of the Year and another ARIA Award, this time for Best Dance Release for "Talk Like That".

The Presets are known for their dynamic live show, with one reviewer describing their performance at Coachella 2011 as "unequivocally the best live set I’ve ever witnessed in my entire life."

Aside from the Presets' extensive performance work, the duo has remixed tracks for several other artists including Kings of Leon, Silverchair and Lenny Kravitz.  The Presets are recognized as key players in the dance music explosion in Australia in the late 2000s.

Apocalypso features the singles "My People", "This Boy's in Love", "Talk Like That", "Yippiyo-Ay", "If I Know You" and "Kicking and Screaming".

Apocalypso was the album that brought The Presets to mainstream audiences. The album debuted at #1 on the Australian ARIA albums charts, and achieved gold certification within two weeks. In October 2008, the album won the 2008 ARIA Awards for Best Dance Release and Album of the Year.

This double album 2LP record set is a limited edition 2019 reissue on 180 gram orange coloured vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves and remastered audio, pressed in Australia via Modular Recordings.
