Sabaton Announce North American Tour with Epica for This Fall


This month saw Swedish military-obsessives Sabaton drop their new album The War to End All Wars. Now, the band have announced that they’re taking their show on the road, having booked a North American tour with power metallers Epica for this fall.

Says bassist and founding member Pär Sundström:

“We’re all looking forward to this tour. It will have been three years since we’ve brought our headline show to America, so we are more ready than ever.  And, with the release of our new album, we now have a vault full of new songs to play.”

As for what fans should expect from the new album live, frontman Joakim Brodén says:

“With our last album, The Great War, we found that we had only scratched the surface in terms of the powerful stories of courage and bravery and also the horrors that took place during the first World War.  Fans would contact us and tell us these amazing stories from World War One that none of us had ever heard of before.  Incredible stories about everyday people who were willing to give their lives for something bigger than themselves.  These were stories of a frightening and liberating time in history that had to be told.”
