Damanek And Southern Empire Added Extra Live Date


International prog collective Damanek and Australian prog rockers Southern Empire have added a further date to their joint In Flight tour for this November.

The bands will now also play Swindon's Victoria venue on November 27. "We are very pleased to announce that we have been able to add in an additional UK Date to the schedule with a stop off at The Victoria in Swindon on Tuesday 27th November. This will in fact be the first UK date on the itinerary," the band told Prog. "This will be a special night for Sean (Timms) as his family hail originally from Swindon and he still has relatives there… No doubt they will turn out to welcome him home!"

Both bands are hoping to release new albums ahead of the live dates. Southern Empire's Southern Empire 2 is slated for a Summer release to be followed by a second Damanek album, In Flight. Both albums will be released on the GEP label.
