Saxon Announce New Single and Video
Saxon have announced the release of their second single, They Played Rock And Roll, as well as an accompanying video, taken from their album Thunderbolt.
'The song tells the story of Saxon's very first tour in 1979 with Motörhead. I want people to get a flavour of what it was like in the UK in 79/80 for Saxon and Motörhead at the start of the 80s musical revolution" says Biff Byford.
The band's upcoming album is set to be released on February 2nd via the Militia Guard label (Silver Lining Music). It will feature original artwork by long time Saxon collaborator, Paul Raymond Gregory.
“This is album 22 and it's called Thunderbolt. It's a Storming Smashing Thundering collection of tracks we've been crafting with Producer, Andy Sneap and it's finished ready to be unleashed. Stand clear and fasten your seat belts!” says Biff Byford
