A European tour with SABATON and APOCALYPTICA, a raft of summer festival appearances and a North American headline tour with BATTLE BEAST and SEVEN SPIRES in support of their forthcoming new album - 2020 promises to be THE year of modern metal sextet, AMARANTHE. To pay tribute to their upcoming tour partners, the band has released a cover version of '82nd All The Way,' giving the original version that can be found on SABATON's current hit album »The Great War« (2019), a new twist with their triple vocal approach.

Guitarist Olof Mörck states, "People who are familiar with AMARANTHE know that we do not frequently do covers, but there was something quite irresistible about interpreting SABATON's '82nd All The Way'! While being thematically different from most of our songs, musically it made perfect sense, and it was a joy to pick the song apart and put it back together to something classically AMARANTHE sounding! So, this is our small tribute to the mighty Swedish War Machine that is SABATON; '82nd All The Way'!"
With their foundations tracing back to 2008, the group has released 5 albums since then (2011's »Amaranthe,« 2013's »The Nexus,« 2014's »Massive Addictive,« 2016's »Maximalism,« and 2018's »Helix«), consistently delivering hauntingly catchy tunes led by their unique three-part vocals. Within their arsenal of hit singles - with 'Drop Dead Cynical' leading right at the front - a myriad tracks have been received very well via press and fans alike; having also gained countless plays on both radio stations around the globe and across streaming services (the group's songs have been streamed more than 100 million times on Spotify). A string of support tours have blazed AMARANTHE's trail in front of huge crowds as well as at their own headline concerts (the group impressively once performed in front of 10,000 fans at Liseberg, Gothenburg). They have kept working incredibly hard over the years, the latest product of which culminated in the form of »Helix,« which achieved them some of their highest chart positions in the band's history (Switzerland #21, Germany #29 etc.).
