A Star Wars-themed band might sound cheesy as hell, but Galactic Empire's music is genuinely well done. The band has announced their new album Episode II for the extremely unsurprising release date of May 4 via Rise Records, and you can check out the band's new song "Scherzo For X-Wings" below. It's a solid track with a lot of great, extremely tribute-worthy melodies, because if who better to steal some lines from than John Williams?

“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. We are confident that any rebel strongholds that remain after the last cycle will soon bow before the Empire. There will be no one to stop us this time.”
