Following the critically acclaimed release of ‘Battering Ram’ in 2015, the heavy metal giants are set to release their latest studio album, ‘Thunderbolt,’ on February 2nd via the Militia Guard label (Silver Lining Music).‘Thunderbolt’ will feature original Artwork by long time Saxon collaborator Paul Raymond Gregory.“This is album 22, and it’s called Thunderbolt” adds Byford. “It’s a Storming Smashing Thundering collection of tracks we’ve been crafting with Producer,Andy Sneap and it’s finished and ready to be unleashed. Stand clear and fasten your seat belts!”Three weeks later, the band will be embarking on the first leg of the Thunderbolt 2018 European Tour followed by a North American tour as special guests to Judas Priest.Since the 1970s Saxon has shown their ability to take rock ‘n’ roll and give it an electrifying edge which has since cemented their status as pioneers of the British heavy metal wave.
