Saxon 'Refreshed, Recharged, and Ready to Rock'

The following was posted on Saxon's official website:

Saxon, whose title track off their album Denim and Leather was seen as an anthem of the early 1980s metal movement are British through and through and are returning with the band's full European production - including their legendary Eagle

Refreshed, re-charged and ready to rock, the mighty Saxon have a whole new sound and hunger after working with renowned producers Mark Wallis and David Ruffy of Razorlight, U2 and The Stranglers

Their brand new single 'If I Was You' - about gun culture - is released on SPV Records on January 20th and this will be closely followed by a celebrated 18th Studio album "The Inner Sanctum" released early in March

Their new album offers powerful sounds and ambitioned lyrics about Eastern Revolutions, British Kings and Queens and the attitude of Great Warriors.
At the same time, the lead vocalist Biff Byford displays an energy that's almost physically perceptible. Byford rightly explains: "The Inner Sanctum" is the most powerful album we've ever recorded." The following tour is the biggest tour the band has ever done in Europe!"

He also notes about their new single "I wrote the lyrics for our new single based on gun and knife crime having seen so many tragic stories of somebody getting knifed to death for a mobile phone and three quid or some young mother caught in the crossfire between two idiots with guns. "If I was you and you were me, would you live your life differently?"

If that's not enough, they are also going to mark the release of the new single on worldwide download, and their return to the British metal scene with an electrifying new Guinness World Record for 'Air Guitar' at Sheffield Wednesday Football Club on Saturday the 20th January.

Have you got what it takes to make history and join around 30,000 strong fans at Hillsborough Stadium to rock out with the mighty Saxon?

Holy $hit...another bit of good news for the older crowd of metalheads..!!!
This band has been kicking a$$ for a long time...They were a major part of the whole NWoBHM..
I seen them a few times back in the 80s, ...Denim and Leather is one of my all time favorite metal albums..along with Wheels of Steel and Strong Arm of the Law...
Its too bad that, they didnt get to be as popular here in the U.S. as some of the other bands that came out of that same era...

Fantastic Group -- With Lionheart having been as good as it was I have high hopes for this album (perhaps the same month as Megadeth's new album).
