HammerFall to do special Glory To the Brave session in Falun 2017!

Hammerfall

Since this is the 20th anniversary of HammerFall‘s debut album Glory To The Brave, the band has decided to do something very special to celebrate this milestone. At Bang Your Head Festival in Germany and Sabaton Open Air in Sweden, they members will be joined on stage by Swedish Grammy nominees Draupner (featuring 3-time key-fiddle world champion Magnus Holmström) for an extensive Glory To The Brave session that you won’t see anywhere else.

Singer Joacim Cans exclaims: “I have worked with these wizards of folk music before, and what they are capable of doing on their instruments is almost impossible. If Yngwie Malmsteen played key-fiddle his name would be Magnus Holmström. This will truly be an epic and unforgettable addition to the live set!”

Draupner represents the timeless Swedish folk music tradition and will put their very unique stamp on some of the HammerFall classics. Expect something very much out of the ordinary for this segment, as no other band on this level has incorporated the Swedish folk music and made the tradition come alive in a heavy metal setting.

This will be reserved for the headline slot of these two festivals, and nowhere else.

Daniel Sjögren fills in for Hannes for a few shows.

Hello Everyone!

Time has come for me to travel homewards for a short while to be with and for my family, home in the north.  My family on the road will have the miles pass underneath the busses and trucks as usual and the show will go on!

So, I hereby introduce you to a dear friend of ours: Daniel Sjögren! He is the sweetest of dudes and an excellent drummer! He was kind enough to help us out and will sit on my drum throne for a few shows until I’m back with my road family, brothers and sisters all over the world again!

Daniel has been rehearsing with Hannes and the Band for the last four weeks.

I’m a bit jealous of all you guys who’s going to see him kill it every night:) Please give him your awesome warm “Sabaton Battalion” support, have fun and I’m looking forward to seeing you all very soon again!

Yours truly, The Vandahl

Thank you Russia!

Russia

Last night in Moscow we wrapped up our tour of Russia and Belarus, in glory.
A memorable show in a packed venue, we couldn’t have asked for more.

Can’t wait to be back!
But now we head to the Baltic Sea for our cruise and the last shows of the year, in Riga and Vilnius.

Спасибо, Россия!

Sabaton in Mexico City

Sabaton in Mexico City

Yesterday we had a blast in Ciudad de Mexico, starting the day with a courtesy visit to Chapultepec Castle. (presently is The National Museum of History and the only royal castle in America), where the Technical Cabinet Secretary Lic. Roberto Padilla Dominguez personally personally awarded us a special gift in the form of a beautiful custom made silver medal, thanking Sabaton for their visit to Mexico.

Afterwards, a fantastic sold out show at Lunario was a fitting end to a perfect day. Now onwards to Monterrey and Guadalajara to wrap up this memorable Latin American tour!

Sabaton in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Sabaton in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Sabaton got tonight one of the wildest reactions ever in Buenos Aires, on our debut show in Argentina. One of the loudest crowds ever sang along to every word!

Muchas gracias Argentina, volvemos pronto!

Sabaton at the Expeditionary Museum in Curitiba, Brazil

Sabaton at the Expeditionary Museum in Curitiba, Brazil

While in Curitiba, Sabaton were invited to visit the Expeditionary Museum, which honours the memory and sacrifices of the Brazilian Expeditionary Legion, who for 18 months trained and battled alongside the Allied forces during WWII.

Unknown to the band, our friends in the Museum (mostly descendants of the veterans themselves) had prepared an incredible surprise for Sabaton: an intimate ceremony during which the band was awarded the “Tenente Max Wolff Filho” medal (for bringing to life the story of these heroes on the now classic song “Smoking Snakes”), an extraordinary distinction that had previously only been awarded to two foreigners, both ex-combatants – an Italian partizan and a Russian veteran – now residing in Brazil.

That makes Sabaton the first non-military foreigners to be bestowed such an honour, and we’re pretty sure the first Heavy Metal band ever to receive such a special gift!

To make matters even more humbling, the medal and corresponding diploma were handed to the band by none other than two surviving “Smoking Snakes” veterans themselves!

“Cobras Fumantes, eterna é sua Vitória!”

Sabaton had a triumphant return to Porto Alegre last night, embraced once again with open arms by the “gaúcho” fans!

And if that wasn’t enough, a (very) young fan attending his first concert ever drew this familiar-looking piece and gifted it to the band after the show.

Onwards to Curitiba for the last show in Brazil on this tour, before heading to Argentina for the very first time!

Sabaton helping charity in Limeira, Brazil

Sabaton helping charity @ Limeira, BR

Sabaton’s show last night in Limeira turned out to even more special than usual. A food drive was held as part of the show to help the charity institutions in the area, and the outcome was quite impressive!

Thanks to our local friend Edson (here pictured with Sabaton and the food raised at the show) who organized it, we hope this small gesture makes a little difference in the lives of those who need it the most.

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!

First dates of THE LAST TOUR in Europe 2017!

The Last Tour

Today we can present the first dates for our massive European tour 2017. THE LAST TOUR is the biggest tour of SABATON yet and scheduled to kick off January 7th at König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany.

Very special guests are none other than heavy metal legends ACCEPT!

We have just finished our new album, which is titled THE LAST STAND and we know we have done a great album, which all fans of SABATON can appreciate for many years. If it is the best album of us, time will tell… But what we can tell for sure is that THE LAST TOUR will be the biggest and best tour of SABATON ever. It is the tour we have been looking forward to do for all these years!“ / Pär Sundström – Sabaton

Accepting a tour with SABATON is the result of a very cool relationship we have with the band. It was a great pleasure to tour with them in USA and we followed their career with respect over the years. We have not seen a band who has such a clear vision where they want to go and it is rare that bands can translate their visions into real action. SABATON are a hard working band and are a serious role model for aspiring musicians and young bands. We are looking forward to have an exciting tour – especially after we have been in the studio for a while and sure feel some kind of cabin fever…“ / Wolf Hoffmann – Accept

2016-05-30 Announcement_1_Tourposter_Web

Tickets for all shows will be available on May 31st at 10:00am CET and can be purchased here: www.sabaton.net/tour

Additional shows to be announced at a later date.

Our 8th album: THE LAST STAND will be released worldwide on August 19th through NUCLEAR BLAST.

We will record the show at Sabaton Open Air in our hometown Falun!

sabaton live dvd recording

Just a few days ago Pär revealed that we have plans to make a new live DVD/Bluray and we can now tell you a bit more of the plans.

In August we have our Sabaton Open Air in our hometown Falun. It is happening for the 8th year in a row and this unique event has over the years brought people from around the world to this special show.

Fans who have travelled there know what is so special about it and now our plan is to share that with the rest of the world so we decided to record the 2015 years show in full!

This will be a DVD/Blu ray which is planned to be released early 2016. It will also contain more Sabaton stuff, including more live shows that we will explain more about later.

Sabaton Open Air 2015

We feel that the time is right for another live release.

A lot has happened with Sabaton since the last release which was recorded 2012 in Poland. We have a new album and Hannes is now in the band.
But not only that…

We now have two new members on the stage. Audie and Walther!

And all together we now make a show which is better then ever before.
This is something we would love to record so it stays forever!

Unique merchandise from our past tours

unique designed merchandise by Sabaton

Looking for an special designed tour shirt?

We often manufacture unique items for our tours, and not only the tour shirt with all dates on the backside. We often make t-shirts for one show only with the date and some more info printed on the backside just to make it a bit more exclusive and more valuable memorabilia than a regular shirt.

Some unique examples:

  • Sabaton Soldier Tourshirt

    Soldier Tourshirt

    Sale! 21.56 17.56 inc. Vat
    Select options
  • Sabaton Sofia 2015 T-shirt

    Sofia 2015

    Sale! 25.56 19.96 inc. Vat
    Select options
  • Sabaton Open Air 2015 - Eagle T-shirt

    Sabaton Open Air 2015 – Eagle

    Sale! 22.36 17.56 inc. Vat
    Select options
  1. The Soldier Tourshirt from the 2015 HEROES tour. One of 2 available designs with all tour dates printed on the back side. The other design is called: “Monument Tourshirt” and has also a few items still in stock.
  2. The special designed shirt from the Sofia show in 2015 with a front side featuring the artwork from the HEROES album and also the Bulgarian flag. On the back side the date and city is printed in Bulgarian.
  3. The t-shirt from the 2015 issue of our own festival: Sabaton Open Air in our hometown Falun, Sweden. This is one of 2 designs that was available during and after the event. And this is the only one left in stock right now.

Do we re-print these items?

All items specially designed for tours, festivals or shows are never ever re-printed again. That’s why a design can be available in only a few different sizes, and never re-stocked again.

If we would re-print theses items, they would not be unique and special any more, and the purpose of printing them in the first place would be totally lost!

If you find a shirt you would like, but can’t find it in your size, we are very sorry to say that there is nothing we can do to help you. It’s sold out, for ever.

Here you can hear your favourite Sabaton songs 24/7, and also hear us talk about the songs in a way
you never heard before. Both historical and fun facts combined with unknown stories from our tours.

We talk Swedish, but you can listen from anywhere in the world.

And this is ALL BECAUSE OF YOUR SUPPORT!
