Sabaton announce “The Great War”

After the momentary panic of The Last Stand giving way to The Last Tour (which turned out just to be a play on the album name and not a hint at retirement), it is with a bounce and a giggle that I get to announce that The Great War is due out on July 19th. This ninth full-length record, that will see the light of day right in time for the band’s 20th anniversary, will be a concept album based on events during the First World War.

The Great War will be available in different formats (available for pre-order now):
  • CD-Digi (History Edition) incl. narrated parts in addition to the album tracks
  • CD (Album Edition)
  • 2CD Earbook (Album + History Edition)
  • 180g LP in various colours (History Edition)
  • 180g LP in various colours (Album Edition)
  • 3CD/3LP Box (The Great Box Edition) includes: Earbook incl. The Soundtrack To The Great War CD,  regular, History & Soundtrack LPs [180g, green], one out of 11 Great War propaganda posters [chosen at random], postcards, emblem, poem on sheet – limited to 1000
The following formats are also available with a signed insert (while stocks last) from www.recordstore.co.uk:

The Great War Tracklist

  1. The Future Of Warfare

The band started the recordings exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War (11/11/1918) and took 3 months of intensive work to complete the album together with their long term producer and partner Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge Studios. Furthermore, the album has been mastered by Maor Appelbaum and the artwork was once again created by Peter Sallaí.
