This is the best ‘Star Wars’ theme cover ever

Posted by on December 18, 2015

By now, you’ve either already seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens or are actively avoiding spoilers. We don’t have any, since we haven’t seen it yet. However, this is the best cover of the theme we’ve heard, by a band calling themselves Galactic Empire. Featuring a pair of Stormtroopers, Darth Vader on guitar and Boba Fett on drums, the project crank out a pretty amazing cover of the iconic theme, complete with a break in the action where Boba Fett and Darth have instrument issues.

It seems like the band is an actual thing, featuring Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland from Pennsylvania’s Atrium Audio (who have produced August Burns Red and Rivers of Nihil) and members of Alustrium with a cameo from Black Crown Initiate frontman James Dorton as the voice of Darth Vader. Their debut album will be out on Velocity/Rise in Spring 2016, but you can download the song on iTunes now.
