Swedish metallers SABATON have released the following statement:"The last shows in Canada [were] the first shows in 12 years that Pr [Sundstrm, bass] had to sit over a show due to a knee injury caught during the band's current North American tour. "Pr has after two days in hospital made the decision to return home and is now recovering. "We have faith that Pr will be playing bass again on the closing shows of the world war tour and until then we will have a replacement bass player." Added Pr: "It hurts to leave from the middle of a tour and I never thought I see the day when I had to pass on a show. "I hope to see you all in the future and cannot wait to return to the stage that I love so much and especially North America to finish what we started. "The show must go on." "World War Live: Battle Of The Baltic Sea", the first-ever live album from SABATON, was released on August 5 via Nuclear Blast Records. SABATON has set "Kings Of War" as the working title of its next album, tentatively due before the end of 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band will play the final show of its current tour on December 18 at Trix/Hof Ter Lo in Antwerp, Belgium. The group stated, "This will be a one-off and we will not bring a setlist or respect any venue curfew."
