GEP Presents "Damanek and Southern Empire 'In Flight' tour of the U.K. and Europe November/December 2018"

In November 2018, internationally renowned progressive rock bands Damanek and Southern Empire will join forces and embark upon their debut tour of the United Kingdom and Europe.

Damanek, featuring members from three different nations, is the brainchild of visionary multi-instrumentalist / singer-songwriter Guy Manning. The group released their debut album 'On Track' in early 2017 to critical acclaim appearing in many 'Best album of 2017' polls and will release their follow-up album 'In Flight' later this year through GEP Records.



Guy Manning, commenting on the upcoming album and tour stated, "Since we played that memorable set at Summers End X Festival in 2016, I have been constantly asked 'When are you going to play live again?' and I have always had to say "…as soon as we can"…but now I can say "SOON!" The new album "In Flight" will be ready for the tour and it has some fantastic new pieces on it, which we are keen to perform live along with some of the favorites from 'On Track'. Should be one hell of a show!"
Southern Empire, hailing from Adelaide, South Australia will also release their second album mid year through GEP.

Led by composer / producer / keyboardist Sean Timms, Southern Empire was formed from the ashes of symphonic prog. band Unitopia in 2014 and have quickly established themselves as one of the premiere live and studio acts of the current prog. era.

"It's always extremely exciting to release a new album and then take those songs on the road. I think we have a very strong set of new songs to compliment the older material and we're really looking forward to bringing our unique blend of 'prog 'n' roll' (as Danny Lopresto, our lead vocalist calls it) to our friends and fans in the U.K. and Europe." - Sean Timms.

For the European leg of the tour, Damanek and Southern Empire will be joined by special guests / friends Seven Steps to the Green Door.

"It's great to be back on stage with Damanek 2 years after our first set at Summers End festival and promoting a brand new album. For the European dates of the tour, my mates in "Seven Steps to the Green Door" will join in for a triple bill of great songs from all the current albums and from our forthcoming new album THE?LIE, which will be released right in time for the tour! – Marek Arnold.
