Founded in 1999 in Falun, Sweden, Sabaton is a five-piece band that is recognised for its fact-based music about important points in history.

This is a 67-minute long musical motion picture which is being released in English, but will be made available with subtitles in a number of languages to cater to audiences around the world.
The “History Rocks” campaign – the global museum project that revolves around the movie’s premiere – is set to take place within the two weeks surrounding November 11, 2023, which is a fitting date, as it commemorates the end of World War 1 (Armistice Day).

Sabaton is a very motivated band that wants to give back to society by promoting education and history. Over the years, the group has collaborated with a number of individual museums. Now, following the making of this movie, the band strongly believes that it is more meaningful for it to be screened in museums spanning the globe than in cinemas, as this is an environment where Sabaton fans would really want to experience it.
