Star Wars Band Galactic Empire To Strike (/tour) The UK

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... a new heavy metal band was formed by some of the most infamous and feared villains in the galaxy - GALACTIC EMPIRE. 

Today, an old evil rises; the dark side of the force grows stronger... Today, news of Rogue One breaks, and so The Emperor gives word of his return to the galaxy. Dark Vader (lead guitar), Boba Sett (drums), Bass Commander (bass), Shadow Ranger (guitar) and Red Guard (guitar) are preparing to strike the UK this December, which is to become the first of the Empire's new colonies.

Lightsabers and blasters have proven to be weak against the rebel scum, so now they will be attacking with guitars, bass and drums, performing classic pieces from the iconic soundtrack of the Star Wars films, written by John Williams. Now, metal is the true path to the dark side. Will you join the Empire?

Check out Galactic Empire performing the main Star Wars theme here:

Vader (guitar) had the following to say: 
"These instruments are crude but should be adequate to shred some faces as we journey across the galaxy. We have been doubling our efforts to complete our debut full-length album in time for The Emperor's arrival. Citizens of the United Kingdom: If you are not part of the Rebel Alliance or a traitor, prepare to be shown the true power of the dark side."

Ably supported by rogue solo maverick Nick Johnston, this tour is more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
