Billboard-charting Swedish heavy metallers & avid war historians SABATON – who devastated U.S. and Canadian stages with their boundless energy this past year opening for Iced Earth and most recently Amon Amarth – are returning to North America in 2015 as direct support to Finland-based symphonic metal storytellers NIGHTWISH, issues Nuclear Blast.
Taking a moment prior to their headlining show at The Whisky in Hollywood, California tonight, SABATON members share their thoughts on their quick return to the western hemisphere:
“After the amazing North American tour we’ve just done, it’s time to follow-up! And what is better than another tour? This time, it’s with our friends in NIGHTWISH.”
SABATON will continue to support their seventh studio album, Heroes, which debuted at #99 on the American Billboard Top 200 album chart and at #105 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200 album chart this past June with triple the first-week album sales of their 2012 release Carolus Rex. Heroes also held the #7 position on the American Hard Rock/Metal chart and #11 on the Canadian Hard Rock/Metal chart.
Come out and experience first-hand why SABATON are one of the most popular breakthrough bands in heavy metal.
