Russia's Classic Rock magazine has uploaded a fifteen-minute documentary on SABATON's December 11, 2016 performance in Moscow. The clip, which was directed by Inna Ford, includes concert footage as well as an interview with SABATON frontman Joakim Brodén.
As previously reported, SABATON drummer Hannes Van Dahl will sit out a few shows on the band's European tour while he awaits his first child with his partner of the last few years, NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen. Fillling in for him will be Daniel Sjögren (TWILIGHT FORCE, BLOODBOUND).
SABATON will return this year for a North American "The Last Tour" headlining trek. The tour will kick off on April 20 at The Trocadero in Philadelphia, hit seven Canadian cities plus Chicago, Anaheim, Dallas, and conclude at the The Fillmore in Silver Springs, Maryland on May 22.
SABATON's eighth album, "The Last Stand", was released last August via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2014's "Heroes" was once again produced by Peter Tägtgren (PAIN, LINDEMANN, HYPOCRISY) and it "marks a brand new chapter in SABATON history," according to a press release.
The artwork for "The Last Stand" was created by Peter Sallaí, who has worked with SABATON since "Carolus Rex".
SABATON last year parted ways with guitarist Thobbe Englund and replaced him with Tommy Johansson (GOLDEN RESURRECTION, REINXEED).
