It’s been five years since their last offering ‘Civilisation’ made such a big impression on the music press and fans alike and now the boys of Southern Empire have put together their new stunning follow-up album, ‘Another World,’ due out on September 4th, 2023 on GEP Records. They’ve done it again! ‘Another World’ is once more a masterpiece of musicianship and production
The first single from the album “Reaching Out” is available now.

Featuring their unique mixture of prog, classic rock and jazz, the addition of impressive new vocalist Shaun Holton takes it to the next level.
Sean Timms: “I am incredibly excited to have Shaun on board for the next phase of Southern Empire music. His range, tonal colour and song writing are impeccable and have a modern sensibility that will take the band further than I’d ever thought possible.”
Shaun Holton: “Making my previous albums pushed me to find the very limits of my potential as a producer and multi-instrumentalist… and whilst I’m incredibly proud of that work and the positive reception it received, I knew that I wanted something more. Southern Empire is definitely the welcome opportunity I’ve waited a lifetime for. This is musicality at a level I have only previously dreamt about, but I have never been more ready!”
