Star Wars-themed band Galactic Empire have released a video of them performing the main Star Wars theme music.

The band will release their self-titled album on February 3 through Rise Records and they tour the UK that month.

The record will feature various covers of music from the hit film series. The band have previously released a video for their version of The Imperial March.

The group describe themselves as, “a heavy metal band comprised of the most sinister villains in the universe.”

They add: “Thanks to key members in the Senate and our allies at Rise Records and Velocity Records the Galaxy will kneel before us on February 3 when we unleash the full power of this album.

“The puny humans of your small forest planet Earth have also indicated a desire to see the mighty Galactic Empire perform our music in a live scenario. We would be most pleased to fulfil this request.”

The Star Wars spin-off join Simpson’s-inspired outfit Okilly Dokilly as the latest band to be based on a popular culture phenomenon.
