Sabaton have shared a video for the song “The Royal Guard.” The track is the English version of “Livgardet,” which is an homage to the Swedish Royal Guard. The group has also announced a limited 12-inch vinyl edition of The Royal Guard, which features both versions.
Mastermind Pär Sundstrōm comments:
“Our new song, ‘The Royal Guard,’ is about the great story of one of the oldest military regiments in the world, formed in the area where Sabaton hail from. We are aware that we cannot make the Swedish Empire MKII happen even if we wanted. We had our chance some 300 years ago… But it was amazing to write about Swedish history again after nearly ten years since we wrote Carolus Rex.”
