The Empire is rising again!

Galactic Empire announced Friday that it is working on its sophomore album, aptly titled Episode II.  The album is currently scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018 via Rise Records. Pre-orders are open now.

In anticipation of its release, the band has debuted the album’s lead single ‘Scherzo For X-Wing’ via Rise Records’ official YouTube channel. The song takes the band’s familiar Powerglove-esque sound made popular on its debut self-titled album and used it for a familiar sound in a brand new arrangement.

The band said in a collective statement that it is highly anticipating the release of Episode II.

“While our debut allowed us to bring a new perspective to much-loved anthems, our latest technological terror is a darker, heavier and far more epic testament to the true power of the Dark Side of the Force,” the band said.  “We are confident that any rebel strongholds that remain after the last cycle will will soon bow before the empire.  There will be no one to stop us this time.”

The full track listing for Episode II is noted below.
