Hear the First Track from Sabaton’s Upcoming New Album

Sabaton have unveiled the first single from their upcoming 8th studio album, ‘The Last Stand’ (available Aug 19th via Nuclear Blast).

Called ‘The Lost Battalion’, the track is inspired by the the name given to nine companies of the United States’ 77th Division during the battle of the Argonne in 1918. Even though these 550-575 brave men were completely surrounded by the German Army and subjected to friendly artillery fire, they kept on fighting for a week until they were relieved. Of the over 500-plus soldiers who entered the Argonne Forest, only 194 walked out unscathed. The rest were killed, missing, captured, or wounded.
