SABATON's ninth full-length album, "The Great War", is due on July 19 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band's 20th-anniversary record is a concept effort covering stories from the First World War.

The official video for the song "Great War" can be seen below.

SABATON started recording "The Great War" exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War (November 11, 1918) and took three months of intensive work to complete the album with longtime producer and collaborator Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge studios. The disc was mastered by Maor Appelbaum and the artwork was once again created by Peter Sallaí.

SABATON's new disc is the group's first with guitarist Tommy Johansson (GOLDEN RESURRECTION, REINXEED), who replaced Thobbe Englund in 2016.
