Swedish heavy metallers Sabaton will be releasing their eighth studio album The Last Stand on August 19, 2016 via Nuclear Blast. Stream the lyric video for “The Lost Battalion” below.
“’The Lost Battalion” is 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.
The band has upcoming live dates:
Sep 25: Knotfest – San Bernardino, CA
Oct 02: Louder Than Life Festival – Louisville, KY
