Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON will release their brand-new, 8th studio album, The Last Stand, on August 19th via Nuclear Blast. The band have revealed the second single called "Blood Of Bannockburn".

Check it out below.

The story behind the lyrics:

1314, nine years after the execution of William Wallace, the Scottish laid siege upon Stirling Castle and an agreement was made that if it had not been relieved by mid-summer the Englishwould surrender the castle to the Scottish. The English could of course not ignore that challenge, and sent a formidable force north towards Stirling to break the siege and relieve the troops inside. In the end Robert The Bruce and the Scottish defeated the English under Edward II's command with a force half the size and not nearly as well equipped of what the English had at their disposal.

A few weeks ago, SABATON released the first single called "The Lost Battalion". Watch the lyric video for the track below as well.

Get the digital single HERE.

The story behind the lyrics:

"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.
