Swedish power metallers Sabaton last released an album in 2014, but they have not been relaxing in that time. In between a heavy international touring schedule, they also find the time to stage their own festival in Sweden each summer, host a cruise and, as of May 2015, have their own radio station in cooperation with Radio Bandit Sweden! Currently the band are on tour through the UK and Europe. As the tanks rolled into a sold out Academy in Manchester, John Gilleese was at the front to catch the action.
