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.”

Sabaton Premiere “The Red Baron” Lyric Video

Sabaton have premiered a lyric video for their new song “The Red Baron.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Great War,” which will be released on July 19. Pär Sundström commented:

“To not include the story of Manfred von Richthofen, a.k.a. ‘The Red Baron’ on a concept album of The Great War felt really strange. And since we are aiming higher than before in every way, we are proud to present this single from our upcoming album today.”

Sabaton Premiere “Fields Of Verdun” Music Video

Sabaton have premiered a new video for their new song “Fields Of Verdun.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Great War,” which will be released on July 19.

Pär Sundström commented:

“We chose ‘Fields Of Verdun’ to be the first single since we felt it represent the album perfect, a classic Sabaton metal song which we cannot wait to include in the future setlists.

The story of the battle of Verdun is also very representative for the album since it has all elements that identifies with ‘The Great War’. Verdun is so much WW1 that we decided to hold the first album presentation in this city, inviting journalists from around the world to not just hear the album, but also understand the story behind it.

It is the first single from the upcoming album even if we just released ‘Bismarck‘, but that song is not from the upcoming album. We decided to write ‘Bismarck’ outside the album since the story does not connect to WW1 and also that it was recorded at a different time. The meaning of this song was a tribute to all fans who have contributed over the years by sending us ideas for future songs, please continue with that!”
