Galactic Empire Release Their Cover Of “The Battle Of Hoth”


Star Wars metal outfit Galactic Empire have newly served up their take on ‘The Battle Of Hoth‘. That composition was originally penned by John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra for the 1980 ‘Star Wars‘ hit film ‘The Empire Strikes Back‘. Galactic Empire‘s rendition of it will appear on their forthcoming album “Special Edition“, due out May 05th.

The band’s Lord Sikh commented:

“BEHOLD! Our new single entitled ‘The Battle of Hoth’ is now available for your aural consumption. You may recognize this musical jigsaw puzzle from the infamous snow battle sequence in ‘The Empire Strikes Back‘, which is a great documentary someone made about us. Prepare for the final stage of sonic warfare before our ultimate weapon ‘Special Edition‘ is released on May 5th. There will be no one to stop us this time!”

A pair of album release shows and events are planned around that album’s release, including:

05/05 Lilitz, PA – Mickey’s Black Box (feat. Darryl “DMC” McDaniels)
05/06 Croydon, PA – Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company

They’ll also be doing doing a special livestream concert on their Twitch a day prior on May 04th, aka ‘Star Wars Day‘. That performance will be part of a streaming marathon also featuring The Acacia Strain‘s Vincent Bennett, Fallujah‘s Scott Carstairs and more. Proceeds from the event will go towards the Make A Wish 501st Legion Fund.
