Sabaton will return to the UK for a tour in November and December, and they're bringing Korpiklaani and Tyr with them in support.
The new-look Swedish outfit last month launched seventh album Heroes, featuring latest additions Chris Rorland, Thobbe Englund and Hannes van Dahl – and leaving only frontman Joakin Broden and bassist Par Sandstrom from the original lineup.
Broden admitted he felt pressure to deliver, saying: “I had a lot of performance anxiety – if I fucked this up and wrote bad songs, people might think it’s because of the new boys coming into the band. They would pay the price for my failure.”
Meanwhile, Korpiklaani release latest album Manala on August 8. Tyr recently launched a video for their track The Lay Of Our Love, featuring Liv Kristine of Leaves’ Eyes. View it below.
