Southern Empire - Civilisation

Following the success of the eponymously titled first album in 2016 GEP are very happy to announce the release of the second Southern Empire album 'CIVILISATION’ on 20th July.

Sean Timms: "It's always exciting to release a new album and this one is particularly special as it marks the first time a band member (apart from myself) has written one of the songs. Album opener 'Goliath's Moon' has been written by our guitarist Cam Blokland and it's a smash!

There's also a re-worked, extended version of a song I wrote with Mark Trueack for the abandoned Unitopia album titled 'Crossroads', a piece I worked on with Steve Unruh from Samurai of Prog called 'Innocence & Fortune' and another 'epic'... 'Cries For the Lonely' which drummer Brody Green had a huge hand in creating, as did all of the guys. This is truly a band effort and we can't wait for you all to hear it!!!"

The band are set to tour internationally in the autumn to support their new album.

17th November: Pwllheli HRH Prog, UK
21st November: Reichenbach Bergkeller, Germany
22nd November: Verviers Spirit Of 66, Belgium
24th November: Zoetermeer De Boerderi, Netherlands
27th November: The Victoria, Swindon, UK
28th November: Southampton The Joiners, UK
29th November: Bilston The Robin 2, UK 
30th November: London Boston Music Room, UK
1st December: Maltby Classic Rock Society, UK

Based in Australia, Southern Empire were formed by Sean Timms following the dissolution of his previous band Unitopia. Influenced by the likes of Dream Theater, IQ, Transatlantic, Karnivool and Steven Wilson, Southern Empire bring a harder, more edgy sound to their music whilst displaying a knack for catchy songs and great melodic hooks.

Southern Empire are:

Sean Timms - Keyboards/Vocals/Saxophone
Danny Lopresto - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Cam Blokland - Guitar/Vocals
Brody Green - Drums/Vocals
Jez Martin - Bass/Vocals

Special Providence - WILL

GEP are excited to announce that Special Providence have been busy in the studio with their follow up album to Essence of Change. The new album 'WILL' is their second outing with GEP.

Adam Marco : "We're currently recording the new album 'WILL' for a 23rd October release on GEP with ten new unadulterated, matured SP songs.
We're using quite an unusual process - leaving the drum recordings until the end of our time in the studio. This way the music can be served better and it gives me more perspective and freedom to find the best flow for the songs."

"We really set the bar high with the material on 'WILL', and it's gonna be the most progressive and heavy stuff we've ever done"
