Sweden's Sabaton has issued the following announcement about recording a music video for the track "Uprising:"
"We are happy to announce that the recording of our music video for the song 'Uprising' has been rescheduled successfully, and that it will take place in Warsaw during this and next week.
Out of respect for the Polish mourning period we decided to postpone the video shoot last week, and now we will try again.
"The song 'Uprising' is a powerful and emotional tribute to those who lost their lives in the Warsaw uprising in 1944, and so shall the video be! This will by far be the biggest Sabaton video production ever, and dare we say: One of the biggest in heavy metal? The video will feature Peter Stormare as SS-Obergruppenführer von dem Bach and will be directed by Jacek Raginis (related to decorated ww2 hero Wladyslav Raginis)."
"Uprising" is off the band's upcoming new album "Coat of Arms." The song can also be heard via the Sabaton MySpace page.
