Star Wars Themed Metal Band ‘Galactic Empire’ Just Announced Their First Australian Tour

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a band decided to dress up as the bad guys from Star Wars and perform heavy versions of the juggernaut movie franchise’s iconic theme songs.

That band is Galactic Empire, and they’re about to head down under for their first ever Australian tour!

They’ll be performing metallicised versions of John Williams’ classic score — from the most br00tal ‘Imperial March’ you’ve ever heard to the sweeping guitars of ‘Duel of the Fates’ — at venues in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and the Gold Coast this November.

Not only that, they’ll also be performing live at the Adelaide and Brisbane instalments of pop culture extravaganza, Supernova!

Featuring Boba Fett on drums, a Stormtrooper on bass, a Shadow Trooper and Imperial Guard on rhythm guitar and a typically brutal Darth Vader who’s prepared to crush your windpipe with his lead guitar skills, Galactic Empire here to shred the rebel forces and rock the very foundation of the galaxy.

Catch all the details below!
