Commented SABATON bassist Pär Sundström: “Thank you. Once again you show that you truly support us. See you soon on the final part of the tour!”

“World War Live: Battle Of The Baltic Sea” was released on August 5 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Sundström previously stated about the band’s decision to release a live album, “Over the years so many people have told us we should make a live album and finally we fell to the demands of all of you, our fans.

“‘The World War Tour’ was amazing and we wanted to record it and keep the shows alive forever. So, during the magic night aboard the SABATON Cruise 2010 we recorded the whole show and now we stand ready to release it as the first-ever official SABATON live CD. And as if it was not enough, we also recorded many shows all around Europe and put together a whole CD with mixed songs from various cities. And finally we decided to release the recording we did at the first Rockstad:Falun festival 2008 from Falun as a bonus for you who buy the limited edition. In total it will be over 20 different songs and we have also collected a lot of pictures from the tour and put them in a massive booklet.”
