A Star Wars themed metal band called Galactic Empire are set to release a self-titled album early next year.
Releasing their cover of ‘The Star Wars Theme’ last year, the band were then able to crowd fund $61,000 which enabled them to record a full album and plan tour dates.
The Star Wars themed metal band announced that their self-titled album will be released on February 3 via Rise Records.
Writing on their Kickstarter, the band describe themselves as “a heavy metal band comprised of the most sinister villains in the universe.” Speaking of their recent success, they stated; “We have successfully infiltrated earth’s “internet” with our first music video, accumulating 8 million total views, press coverage from Huffington Post, Entertainment Weekly and MSNBC (among many others), and a live network television performance on E! Entertainment during their coverage of the 2016 Academy Awards.”
Continuing, they wrote of their plans to tour, stating; “The puny humans of your small forest planet Earth have indicated a desire to see the mighty Galactic Empire perform our music in a live scenario. We would be most pleased to fulfill this request.”
