SABATON – release new animated story video for “Christmas Truce”

On December 24th, in the tragic year of 1914, in the middle of a cold night: After 6 months in the muddy trenches, the war still hasn’t come to an end and on Christmas Eve, the soldiers were missing home even more than on any other day and started quietly singing Carols. Although an official truce was declined from the governments, an eerie silence haunted the empty battlefields on the morning of December 25th. That was when the British and German soldiers slowly crawled out of their trenches to wish each other a merry Christmas, take photographs, play games and even exchanged a few gifts.

In this animated story video, SABATON depict this one-of-a-kind event during the First World War that should later be known as “Christmas Truce“. The brand new video was unveiled during the band’s ongoing Christmas Advent Calendar on their social media channels and website.

“This is the story of the Christmas Truce & this is why we wrote our latest single”, bassist Pär Sundström comments. “We now give you a different way of experiencing our music and the history behind it!”

The new video was produced by Yarnhub who also created the animated story videos of‘No Bullets Fly’https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dslO-3GgenY

The band’s ninth studio album, “The Great War”, released on July 19, 2019, is a musically rich concept album capturing the sinister atmosphere of World War I – thus continuing the band’s trademark style of telling unforgettable stories from merciless battlefields all over the planet.
