‘Star Wars’ Metal Band Galactic Empire Announce New Album, Stream “Scherzo For X-Wings”


Galactic Empire, the ‘Star Wars‘ metal tribute band formed by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (also of Century fame,) will have their new album “Episode II” in stores on May 04th (aka ‘Star Wars Day‘) via Rise Records. Pre-orders for the album are available now via this location. A video for their new track “Scherzo For X-Wings” can be found below. The band commented of the forthcoming new album:

“While our debut allowed us to bring a new perspective to much-loved anthems, our latest technological terror is a darker, heavier, and far more epic testament to the true power of the Dark Side of the Force. We are confident that any rebel strongholds that remain after the last cycle will soon bow before the Empire. There will be no one to stop us this time.”
