SABATON has set “Kings Of War” as the working title of its next album, tentatively due before the end of 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The band will play the final show of its current tour on December 18 at Trix/Hof Ter Lo in Antwerp, Belgium. The group stated, “This will be a one-off and we will not bring a setlist or respect any venue curfew.”
