Sabaton distinguished with gold and platinum awards!

SABATON - distinguished with gold and platinum awards!

Sabaton are currently touring the world in support of our latest studio record “The Last Stand” and also holding #1 (“The Last Stand“), #7 (“Carolus Rex”; on the top for 248(!) weeks in a row now), #9 (“Heroes“), and #17 (“The Art Of War”) in the Swedish Top 20 rock charts.

After hitting the charts worldwide with “The Last Stand” last year (#6 World; #1 in Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany among others), we were recently honoured with new plaques for our impressive album sales: “The Last Stand” achieved Gold in our homeland Sweden, and in Poland. The previous studio album, “Heroes“, even got platinum-certified in Sweden!

On March 4th, Sabaton had already been honoured with golden plaques for “The Last Stand“‘s sales in the Czech Republic at Tipsport Arena, Prague.

This is a proof of two things, first that we are still able to make music that fans wanna listen to and second that we have fantastic fans who really care. Sure, the current tour is called “The Last Tour”, but as long as it is going like this we’ll be going strong for a long time.”

Hammerfall to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Hammerfall

There are quite a few of us who are happy over the fact that the HammerFall boys once went against the tide – and dared to stand (and deliver!) their metal, in a time when metal was in a coma.

EXCLUSIVE: Special Glory To the Brave session in Falun 2017!

Some 20 years and 9 studio albums later, HammerFall released their 10th, ”Built to Last”this fall. They are also introducing their new drummer, Johan Koleberg, who the SOA audience met last summer in Therion.

HammerFall is to consider one of the most iconic bands in their genre, and it’s with great pride we now can welcome them to Falun in August 2017 for a Friday headline show at Sabaton Open Air!

Or as the singer, Joacim Cans puts it:

”It is an honor to yet again share the stage with our friends in Sabaton, and this time on their home ground within the heart of Sweden. We have always had a nice fanbase there so we are really looking forward to once again deliver some ‘True German metal from Sweden!’ ;) “

HammerFall is headline act for Friday night with their Special Glory To the Brave session with Draupner!

Carolus Rex returns to Fredrikstens Fortress in Halden, Norway

Carolus Rex returns to Fredrikstens Fortress in Norway

In 2012 we made an album entirely dedicated to Swedish history.

We named it after one of the most iconic kings ever to sit on the throne of our country, Karl XII, more known as CAROLUS REX.
Carolus Rex was killed in 1718 at Fredrikstens Fortress in Norway during a siege and 100 years of the Swedish Empire came to an end this dark night in November.

Now, in June 2017 Carolus Rex will return to this legendary fortress for a unique night when we in Sabaton will perform our entire album dedicated to the the rise and fall of the Swedish Empire.

See Carolus rise!

Tickets for this, and all other Sabaton shows, is available here in our tour section!

Tons of Rock 2017

Historic fact about Carolus Rex:

Charles XII, also known as Carolus Rex, became King of Sweden on 5th April 1697 at the age of 15, following the death of his father Charles X1.

The Great Northern War broke out in February 1700, as neighbouring countries planned to take back territories that they had lost during the swedish expansion of the 1600s. Sweden was attacked on three fronts: by Peter The Great in Russia, Augustus The Strong in Saxony/Poland and Frederick IV in Denmark.

They were all convinced that Sweden, led by an inexperienced teenage King, would be easy prey. However, the young King, by then 18 years of age, quickly lined up several victories.

The quiet but determined King had been brought up to rule as an absolute monarch. Many of his closest officials and high ranking officers found him hard to understand but he was loved by his soldiers. When they attacked, he was often in the first rank.

Charles XII’s bravery, quick wits and unusually good tactical eye made him an outstanding leader in pitched battle. His exceptional ability to infuse courage into his soldiers was another strong contributing factor in the initial triumphs and his army’s high morale in battle.

However, he could also appear harsh and callous. A macho culture predominated in his circles, where showing feelings like grief and pain were out of the question.

The Swedish army’s treatment of both the civilian population and prisoners of war in Poland and Russia was sometimes extremely cruel.

With the King’s consent, there were merciless reprisals – including the torture of children – and mass executions.

In the Army Now – Our version

In the Army Now - Single

This is our version of “In the Army Now”.

This hit song by the Dutch duo Bolland & Bolland was released already in 1982, and was also recorded by the British rock band that Status Quo in 1986 and became a smash hit once again with high scores on many charts world wide.

During the years many other bands have also recorded their versions of this great song.

We recorded it as a bonus track for the Carolus Rex album back in 2012.

Lyric video for SPARTA!

Sparta

We released our new record entitled “The Last Stand”, on August 19th through Nuclear Blast and have entered the Top 10 of the worldcharts on a fantastic #6. This result shows that SABATON are more successful globally than ever before (for example #1 in Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Czech Republic, #2 in Germany, Austria, Poland and many more).

Today, we released a new lyric video for the song “Sparta”:

“The battle of Thermopylae is in many ways one of the most iconic last stands in history. King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans were certainly not as alone as portrayed in the famous movie ”300”, but in the end it was their sacrifice that would be remembered by the world to come. An amazing story of the Greek nation states which would rather die than lose their freedom.”

The worldwide chart entries are as follows:

#6 – World Charts

#1 – Czech Republic
#1 – Finland
#1 – Sweden (#1 – Rock/Metal)
#1 – Switzerland
#2 – Austria
#2 – Germany
#2 – Poland
#4 – Belgium (#3 – Vlanders, #11 Wallonie)

#63 – USA (#2 – Hard Music, #4 – Independent, #5 – Rock Album, #19 – Current Top Album)

TWILIGHT FORCE confirmed as opening act on THE LAST TOUR 2017 in Europe!

Twilight Force

The wait is over, the opening act of our European tour 2017 can be unveiled today! For this slot, none other than Falun, Sweden (like Sabaton) based TWILIGHT FORCE could have been engaged. Founded in 2011, the six-member adventure metal group unleashes their sophomore album called HEROES OF MIGHTY MAGIC today via Nuclear Blast. It comes with guest appearances from Joakim Brodén and RHAPSODY OF FIRE vocalist Fabio Lione!

“If there ever was a band I’ve wanted to tour with it’s these guys! Not only good friends of us, but they also pushed the boundaries of Metal further into the dimension of madness where “less is more” simply doesn’t exist. How can less be more? MORE is always more! That’s why we love these guys and want to go on tour with them!“ – Joakim Brodén

THE LAST TOUR is the biggest tour of Sabaton yet and is going to sell out many of Europe’s largest venues.
Very special guests are none other than heavy metal legends ACCEPT.

Lyric video for Shiroyama!

Shiroyama

Here you go the third single from our new album THE LAST STAND!

Our new album is released in exactly one week from today, on August 19:th!

– Excited?

The story behind the lyrics:
It’s the nature of time and history that the old ways must give in to the new ways and the modern age. The battle of Shiroyama in 1877 marks the end of an era and is the last stand of the legendary Samurai. Led by Saigo Takamori, the Samurai was down to 500 warriors at the end of the rebellion when they made their last stand on Mount Shiroyama. At the end of the battle there were only 40 samurai left. They drew their swords and plunged downhill toward the enemy positions until the last of them was mowed down.

Thobbe Englund leaves Sabaton

Thobbe Englund leaves Sabaton

Our colleague and brother Thobbe Englund has decided to part ways with Sabaton.
We wish him nothing but success and good luck in the future, and we salute him for all the good years and the fantastic moments we shared both on and off the stage!

Below is Thobbe’s own words:

————————————
Dear friends!

Today I have decided to announce my leave from Sabaton.

Why? …many may ask.

– There is this thing that I truly believe in, and that is that one should always follow the heart.
I have in recent years become more aware of what would make me feel real happiness and content, and that is to expand my own creativeness in combination with a somewhat stiller life, where I will not tour all year round at the speed of light.

Unfortunately as a consequence I will not be able to meet all of you wonderful people out there, which is sad, and I´m really gonna miss you all.
But I will still be making music, of course, and as I am writing this I am making plans for the future.

During the many years of touring with Sabaton we have become like brothers.
Together with the best crew in the world we´ve had a true blast and there is a bond between all of us that cannot be broken.
Therefore I find no reason to be sentimental, because brothers and sisters are friends for life, and the future is bright!

Always yours truly.
Thobbe.
————————————

Thobbe will do some more shows during the summer and play his final gig with Sabaton in our hometown Falun, on our own festival Sabaton Open Air, for the releaseparty of our new album The Last Stand.

After that a new guitar player will carry on.

Do not fear friends, the show will go on!

Fourth trailer for THE LAST STAND

We will release our brand-new, 8th studio album, “The Last Stand” on August 19th through Nuclear Blast. Today, we can reveal the fourth trailer in support of this upcoming record.
Click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmEDIteCbDo

Check it out the latest single, ‘Blood Of Bannockburn’: https://youtu.be/Oi7xBe5-M8k

The story behind the lyrics:
1314, nine years after the execution of William Wallace, the Scottish laid siege upon Stirling Castle and an agreement was made that if it had not been relieved by mid-summer the English would surrender the castle to the Scottish. The English could of course not ignore that challenge, and sent a formidable force north towards Stirling to break the siege and relieve the troops inside. In the end Robert the Bruce and the Scottish defeated the English under Edward II’s command with a force half the size and not nearly as well equipped of what the English had at their disposal.
