Since Sabaton's inception on the threshold of the 21st century in the picturesque Swedish town of Falun, this heavy metal giant has conquered milestone after milestone, reached quadruple Platinum sales, and performed mega-sized concerts all over the world.
However, despite Sabaton's never-ending passion for writing explosive tales about remarkable historical turning points, these relentless brave hearts have always had just one crystal-clear goal: to march fearlessly towards the next battles.
Sabaton's ninth studio recording, The Great War, was released on July 19, 2019. To support The Great War, Sabaton hit the road with "The Great Tour," beginning with several festival appearances, including the band's 20th-year anniversary headline spot on the holy grounds of Wacken Open Air. From there, the band headlined a North America run in the fall of 2019, then took "The Great Tour" throughout Europe in January and February 2020, and then were off for a five-week tour of Russia and Belarus in March. Sabaton was able to play nine of those dates before COVID-19 forced them to cancel the rest of the shows.
For ninety-nine percent of comrades, a series of successful studio albums and voluminous world tours would be enough. Well, not for these warlords.
Sabaton’s tenth album, The War to End All Wars, will be released on March 4, 2022 (Nuclear Blast). Written and recorded in 2021 during the COVID global pandemic, the band has crafted a concept album of 11 brand new songs that dive deep into previously unexplored atrocities, miracles and events tied to the early 20th century's World War I.
With the release of The War to End All Wars, fans can expect a wealth of single releases, each one accompanied by a compelling and emotional music video that will breathe life into the fact-based story behind the song. In addition, the album will be available in an impressive variety of exclusive formats, including CD, vinyl, and cassette, most available in limited editions, both in terms of quantities available and by territory. With the addition of Sabaton’s global touring schedule, look for The War To End All Wars to have a multi-year cycle.
Today, the band that hails from Falun unleashes its masterpiece: “The Symphony To End All Wars — a virtuosic, symphonic take on the “The War To End All Wars”.
SABATON will release "The Symphony To End All Wars" and make "The War To End All Wars (History Edition)" available for streaming!
