Sabaton Premiere “Seven Pillars Of Wisdom” Music Video

Sabaton have premiered a new video for their song “Seven Pillars Of Wisdom.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Great War.” Pär Sundström commented:

“Finally we can share this great music video with you and show you that our trip to the Sahara not only led to the car accident you have read about but actually to a great adventure and an even greater video. We initially investigated ways to film this video in other locations, even in studios with greenscreen but in the end we decided to go to a suitable location. I am very impressed with the band, the cast and the crew who all put in a lot of effort to make this happen.”

Sabaton Team Up With Apocalyptica For Reworked Version Of “Angels Calling”

Sabaton have joined forces with Apocalyptica for a new reworked version of “Angels Calling.” You can check out an official video for that below. It’s also worth noting that Apocalyptica are planning to join Sabaton onstage during their upcoming tour for several newly arranged songs.

Sabaton’s Pär Sundström commented:

“‘Angels Calling’ was the first song we wrote on the topic of World War 1 for the ‘Attero Dominatus’ album back in 2006, and together with Apocalyptica, we have really given the song a new life. Due to the song’s topic, our recent album, the upcoming tour and a great demand from fans, the song is now back on the setlist for the tour.

The song’s arrangement was made in August, when Apocalyptica visited our hometown Falun to perform at the Sabaton Open Air festival. It was recorded in Black Lounge studios by Jonas Kjellgren and the Apocalyptica parts were later recorded in Finland.

Richard Erixon, our longtime video producer, captured the best moments from the rehearsals in Falun and edited it into a music video for the song.

We wanted this tour to offer something that we have never done before, and when I attended an Apocalyptica show in Madrid a few years ago I already had a strong vision to perform together, so I explained the idea to Apocalyptica and here we are, with the best show we have ever done.”

Sabaton Involved In Serious Car Accident

Sabaton were unfortunately involved in a serious car accident while in Tunisia earlier this week. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel their show in Gdansk, Poland tonight (September 1).

The group commented:

“Two days ago in Tunisia we were involved in a serious traffic incident upon our return from a video shoot in the Sahara desert.

We are all broken, badly beaten, bleeding and stitched up, but happy to be alive and confident that we will be fully recovered over time.

However, after consulting medical expertise and evaluating all our injuries we are sure that we cannot do the scheduled concert in Poland today without risk of consequential injuries.

We will be back with full force in October for the North American tour and will return to Gdansk as soon as possible.

Until then we would like to share a few of our private images from the filming in Sahara and the accident.

Thanks for understanding /The Band.”
