Although this fantastically violent looking album won’t be out until August 19th, Sabaton have graced us with a trailer, and also a single release.
The single, The Lost Battalion, was released two weeks ago and you can have a listen here:
The band tells us:
“‘The Lost Battalion’ is the name given to nine companies of the United States’ 77th Division during the battle of the Argonne in 1918. Even though these 550-575 brave men were completely surrounded by the German Army and subjected to friendly artillery fire, they kept on fighting for a week until they were relieved. Of the over 500-plus soldiers who entered the Argonne Forest, only 194 walked out unscathed. The rest were killed, missing, captured, or wounded.”
Serious stuff. To find out more about the new album, go watch the trailer below.
