(hennemusic) Black Star Riders frontman Ricky Warwick has released a video for "Schwaben Redoubt", a track from his latest 2CD solo package "When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)" and "Hearts On Trees."

The song honors next month's 100th anniversary of the Battle Of The Somme as fought by the British and French empires against Germany in France during the First World War and considered the largest battle on the Western Front that saw more than 1 million wounded or killed in action.

Warwick shares vocals on the track with Jake Burns of Stiff Little Fingers. "This is a song about a friendship found between two teenage lads from Ireland in a trench in Northern France on the morning of the 1st July 1916...a hundred years ago this year," Warwick tells War History Online. "One from the North one from the South who would on any other day hate each others guts but today all they have is each other, a shared fear of death and a shared name - Schwaben Redoubt was the name of the German position they walked towards that morning ....and into death."
