Vega have premiered a video for their track White Flag.

The song is taken from their upcoming album Who We Are, due out on May 13. Singer Nick Workman say the band were “very excited” as they shot the promo at locations where parts of the upcoming movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was filmed.

He adds: “You can see the hanger in the trailer for Rogue One that was released last month. We all love Star Wars. I still have all of my toys in the loft, apart from the AT-AT Walker. I still play with that.

“The song White Flag really does show Vega for who we are – a big chorus, big guitars and drums and loads of melody. We recorded the album at Monnow Valley Studio and inspiration was very easy to find when you are in the same environment that Black Sabbath, Stereophonics, Queen and other amazing bands have recorded.”

Vega will tour the UK with Magnum this month, and will play a headline show at London’s Islington O2 on May 28.
