SABATON bassist Pär Sundström comments: “It’s a great honour for us to be special guests to one of the most influential metal bands of all time, for a very special tour. We received a lot of requests from the USA that fans wanted to see us return after the successful tour we did last year and here we are, in great company.”

SABATON’s global assault continues in support of their latest album, The Great War, that’s out now from Nuclear Blast. The record has been lauded by fans and critics since its debut on worldwide charts last summer, and features numerous colossal singles like “Great War,” “82nd All The Way” and “Fields of Verdun.”
