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!”

Sabaton Premiere “Bismarck” Music Video

Sabaton have premiered a new video for their new standalone single “Bismarck.” The clip was directed by Matthias Hoene and produced by Wargaming.

The band commented:

“The most requested topic for a Sabaton song ever!

The fate of the ship Bismarck is a fascinating story we wanted to write about for a long time, but could not fit into any album. So we decided to make it as a single release, and as a gift from us to you for being fantastic fans for the past 20 years.

Thanks to our friends at Wargaming and World Of Warships, we can also present it with a truly impressive video, well worthy of this song. The talented team at Wargaming could ensure the historical accuracy of the scenes thanks to the models from their award-winning game World Of Warships, and the director Matthias Hoene, who won a Golden Lion at Cannes, were able to bring the band and story together.

The song ‘Bismarck’ was written over a year ago and we recorded it last summer in Black Lounge studios with Jonas Kjellgren, who has also recorded and mixed our upcoming album, ‘The Great War’ [out July 19].

Bismarck was a German battleship and one of the biggest ever built in Europe. Commissioned in August 1940 and sunk in May 1941 after an intense hunt in the North Atlantic. Though he now rests beneath the waves, players of World Of Warships can still take this iconic ship into virtual battles.

For now, the song is available at YouTube so you can enjoy this great video for free. At a later stage, it will also be available on your favourite digital platform.

You wanted us to write this song, we heard you, and here is our tribute!”

Expect many surprises as we have tried new things and we also went back in time to a concept we know a lot of you love. The Great War has been created side by side with the Sabaton History Channel to make 2019 the most exciting year in our 20 year history.”
