Sabaton to release collectable Christmas Truce Popup vinyl

Sabaton will release a collectable Christmas Truce Popup vinyl on 23 December 2022 containing three versions of their track Christmas Truce from the album The War To End All Wars.

“We really hold our song Christmas Truce close to our hearts as it’s a great story,” bassist Pär Sundström said. “We see arenas shine when we play it at our shows, and it really brings people together. This is a song about peace, and we felt it needed a special design. We hope our fans enjoy it and that our song Christmas Truce becomes part of the Sabaton live set for a long time to come.”

This piece of vinyl features a camouflage pattern on Side A and a festive design with the Sabaton logo on Side B. A unique display of a vibrant Christmas Tree surrounded by soldiers of opposing sides standing united pops up when opening the vinyl.

“During the first Christmas of the First World War,” Sundström said, “unofficial ceasefires were enforced across the Western Front that saw soldiers who should have been mortal enemies unite. The soldiers socialised, played games, sang Christmas carols in unison and even exchanged gifts like any normal group of people would.

“The only difference was that they were supposed to be fighting each other. It was a short but sweet respite from the horrors and stress that they endured daily on the battlefield. It ended abruptly but meant so much to these men.”

Christmas Truce vinyl can be pre-ordered from

Sabaton tour Europe through April and May 2023. Special guests are Babymetal, with support from Lordi.
