GEP are really pleased to announce their new signing, Southern Empire. 

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. 

Their first album ‘SOUTHERN EMPIRE’ is released through GEP on 18 march 2016 and features a bonus DVD of footage of the album material. The band plan to tour internationally to support the album – dates to follow shortly. 

Southern Empire are: 

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