Star Wars-loving Metal band Galactic Empire has surprise-released their new album Special Edition. Special Edition features tracks from across the Star Wars cinematic universe, including recent singles “The Battle Of Hoth”, “The Imperial Suite”, and “The Mandalorian”. The album is out now digitally via Pure Noise Records.
Lord Sikh says:
We have finally completed construction on our new album entitled Special Edition. The Empire worked tirelessly to produce a recording so powerful that it strikes fear into the heart of every rebel ding dong throughout the universe. This technological terror is now available thanks to our alliance with the Pure Noise Records Trade Federation. You have served your master well, and you will be rewarded!
Galactic Empire will be performing a special livestream concert on their Twitch channel this Thursday, May 4th. The show will be part of a streaming marathon featuring Vincent Bennet, Scott Carstairs, Chain Brain, Thongg Delong, and Nicole Papastavrou, and raising money for the Make A Wish 501st Legion Fund.
The following day Galactic Empire will celebrate the release of Special Edition with their “Revenge of the Fifth” show on Friday, May 5th at Mickey’s Black Box in Lititz, PA. Joining the band for a special one-time only encore performance will be Run DMC’s own Darryl “DMC” McDaniels.
The band will also be holding a special “Revenge of the Sixth” event on Saturday, May 6th at Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company in Croydon, PA.
Galactic Empire will be rounding out their weekend with an additional performance on Sunday, May 7th at West Shore Theater in New Cumberland, PA.
Fans can also look forward to seeing Galactic Empire later this year when they hit the road for several shows throughout the Midwest. The week and a half long run kicks off on August 4th in Indianapolis and wraps up on August 13th in Hobart.
