On January 25, Swedish metallers SABATON played a special gig at the Må Bättre gym in Falun, Sweden. They performed live during a spinning class, while simultaneously participating in the workout themselves.
Official video footage of this special event can be seen below.
"We made special mic holders in order to be able to position them on the spinning cycle," SABATON vocalist Joakim Brodén told the Dala-Demokraten newspaper prior to the performance. "Everyone, apart from our drummer, Hannes [Van Dahl], will [actively participate in] the class."
SABATON will release its new album, "Heroes", on May 16 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the CD was created by Péter Sallai.
"Heroes" wasrecorded at The Abyss, the recording studio in Pärlby outside Ludvika, Sweden owned and operated by record producer and musician Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN).
SABATON played its first show with new drummer Hannes Van Dahl on November 16, 2013 at the Metal Hammer Paradise festival in Germany.
SABATON will return to the U.S. and Canada in April as direct support to American metallers ICED EARTH on their "Worldwide Plagues" North American tour. Opening each show on the six-week trek will be Dutch metallers REVAMP (featuring NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen).
