Sabaton has released a new, history-focused music video for their latest single “The Future of Warfare.”
The band got creative for the clip, enlisting LCM Brick Show to create a stop motion reenactment of the World War I Battle Of Flers–Courcelette using plastic building bricks. The video commemorates the 104th anniversary of the event, which took place between September 15, 1916 and September 22, 1916.
“The Future of Warfare” is the latest single from Sabaton’s ninth studio album The Great War, released in July 2019. A concept album about the First World War and follow-up to 2016’s The Last Stand, the band previously released the singles “Fields of Verdun,” “Red Baron” and “The Great War.” It is also the band’s first with guitarist Tommy Johansson, who joined following the 2016 departure of Thobbe Englund.
Said the band about the album at the time:
“This is not the first time we sing about stories from this period in time, but now we felt the timing was right to make a full concept album about this war.”
Sabaton celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2019 with the release of The Great War, as well as a European tour. The band was slated to head out on a North American tour with Judas Priest this month before it had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. It was announced last week that they would be participating in the inaugural Warlando Metal Fest on September 11, 2021 at Orlando Amphitheater at Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, Florida.
