What is History Rocks?
History Rocks is a charity initiative that aims to raise awareness on the importance of history and to encourage more people to visit their local museums. Commenting on the project, Sabaton’s Manager and Bass-Player Pär Sundström said, “We believe that by screening “The War To End All Wars-The Movie” in museums around the world, we can inspire people to appreciate the importance of preserving and learning about our history. And what better way is there to do this than by infusing history education with an entertaining, adrenaline-fueled animated movie?”
Who are Sabaton?
In the more than two decades since their launch, Swedish metallers Sabaton have achieved quadruple-Platinum sales, headlined major festivals and sold-out arena concerts across the globe, and earned a legion of loyal fans by carving out a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in rock. Sabaton combines standout stage design and production with epic concept albums, linking real-life historical war events with classic kick-ass metal. To date, the band has released ten studio albums, amassed six GOLD, two PLATINUM, and one four-times-PLATINUM awards, seen eight of its albums score Top 10 international chart status, and six claim the Top 5. With initiatives like History Rocks the band hopes they can extend their passion for history to a global audience.
Band Manager and Bass-Player Pär Sundström said of their partnership with Museums, “Museums are really important to us as a band, especially military and history-focused museums–we have learned so much from them. We want the world to be curious and would love for people to genuinely want to learn about the past. The only way we grow as human beings is by learning about days gone by and appreciating the sacrifices that have been made for us to live the way we do.”
