Today we can reveal the title and artwork for our 9th studio album that will be released this summer. We have named it THE GREAT WAR and as the title tells it covers stories from the First World War.
THE GREAT WAR will be available worldwide through Nuclear Blast Records on July 19th.
We started the recording 100 years after the First World War ended (11/11/1918) and during the following 3 months we completed the album together with our long term partner Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge studios.
This is not the first time we sing about stories from this period in time, but now we felt the timing was right to make a full concept album about this war.
The album has been mastered by Maor Appelbaum and the artwork was once again created by Peter Sallaí.
Side by side with the album we have worked with the Sabaton History Channel to make our 20th year anniversary a very exciting year!
Starting from today, you can purchase new exclusive merchandise for THE GREAT WAR! The new items are available to buy online by clicking here.
Here’s an interview of Pär discussing the new album:
It has been more than a month since the launch of Sabaton History and we wish to thank all of our fans for supporting this initiative and for subscribing to our new channel.
Why are we doing this and why should you join?
This has been a dream of ours for many, many years. We want to share the stories that inspired us in the first place with you all, and Sabaton History is our chance to do exactly that.
We’ll dive into the history but we will also explain what that particular song means to us, how we came up with the initial idea, and share some amazing stories (some are truly epic!) about our experiences around the song.
It’s only now that we’re in a position to even think of doing this, and in the end we need you to participate so that we can keep investing into this awesome channel together. So get involved with the project and join us by choosing one of our membership tiers and help make this an awesome and huge project!
By being a member of Sabaton History not only will you be part of the force that keeps us rolling – you will also get some exclusive benefits only available for our Sabaton History members including early access to every new episode! And there’s much more than this depending on the tier you choose:
