Sabaton have relased second singel from upcoming album The Great War.
Svenske Sabaton slipper sitt niende album, The Great War, 19. juli på Nuclear Blast. Nå har bandet sluppet andre singel, «The Red Baron«.
Bassist Pär Sundström har følgende kommentar til låten:
To not include the story of Manfred von Richthofen, AKA «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 slapp første singel tidlig i mai, kalt «Fields Of Verdun«. Om denne sangen sa Sundström dette:
We choose ‘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.
Sabaton har også sluppet en albumtrailer, hvor vokalist Joakim Broden og Pär Sundström snakker om de ulike aspektene ved albumet.
