Saxon Postpones "Call To Arms" Release Date

Saxon has checked in with the following update about postponing the release of "Call To Arms," the band's new album:

"Hi, hope all is well. We have some good news and some bad news. Bad news first: The album will be delayed for two weeks. Good news is: The official release is June the 3rd in Germany, Austria and Switzerland via Soulfood. The rest of Europe the following week. It may be the 3rd of June in the UK. I will let you know as soon as I know.

"More good news: On the first edition digipack there will be a bonus disc from Saxon's historic performance of the 1980 Castle Donington show. Re-mixed and re-mastered following the discovery of the lost multitrack tape.

"Call To Arms will also be available as jewel case CD, LP and as limited edition picture LP (vinyl). The album should be on the web shops in the next few days. Keep the faith."

Share your sentiments Wilco! Looking forward to new Saxon! The digi pack with live Donnington sounds sweet though,worth the wait. These guys plus Venom are my bucket list bands to see live! Hopefully Saxon do a proper US tour. When they come over here its usually a handfull of select dates in only major markets. NP: Saxon/ Dallas 1PM
