(Metal Hammer) Sabaton frontman Joakim Broden says a hectic touring schedule is partly to blame for the band's lineup changes. They most recent member to leave the Sabaton fold was guitarist Thobbe Englund, with the vocalist saying he understands why being part of a band isn't for everyone.

Speaking to Mitch Lafon at this year's Heavy Monteal, Broden says: "Our second guitar player Thobbe resigned a couple of weeks ago, so we've got a new one coming in - that's still a secret, though.

"I also understand we're a very active band. I think between April 2014 and April 2015 we played 170 shows, so that's at least 250 days away from home. It's tough.

"I've seen it happen so many times with our band and other bands, that even if you can try to explain it, do you have any idea what you're getting yourself into? There is no guarantee that you're still going to want this five years later."

Sabaton have also released a lyric video for their track Shiroyama, which features on their eighth album The Last Stand - out on August 19 via Nuclear Blast. Watch it here.
