Saxon announces three new festival shows in summer 2014! Also Bloodstock Open Air confirmed!

Friday, 15 November 2013

After the great success of Saxons North America tour this autumn, Saxon is going to perform multiple shows in Germany in 2014.

Besides an upcoming tour in spring 2014 the band also announces three new festival shows in Germany for summer 2014: Out & Loud Festival, Rock am Härtsfeldsee and Classic Rock Night!

31.05.2014 GER, Geiselwind Out & Loud Festival
27.06.2014 GER, Dischingen Rock am Härtsfeldsee
09.08.2014 GER, Pyras Classic Rock Night

On top of that we will come back to Derby and will perform at Bloodstock Open Air

10.08.2014 GBR, Derbyshire Bloodstock Open Air

Moreover Saxon is releasing a brand new album today!

The band produced a series of alternative takes on their favorite songs to herald a worthy new entry to the Saxonian Institute of Metal.

There is always beauty in a raging beast and with Unplugged and Strung Up, Saxon's selection of unique, fresh and adventurous interpretations of material previously heard only with raw heavy metal thunder, the point is triumphantly underscored.

The album will be available as a compact disk as well as different limited editions!

Keep the faith!

Hi Saxon Universe!

Thursday, 31 October 2013


As we have heard unfortunately the Motörhead tour has been postponed until spring! We all hope Lemmy will come back stronger than ever!
Saxon will be on the tour together with Motörhead in Spring and we are waiting for the new dates which will be announced soon.

Due to the new situation we went back and forth but the logistical challenge we are confronted with have forced us to move the Saxon headline shows as well. We are in the middle of dealing with this and will let you all know ASAP! The only show which will be still on is the Metal Hammer Paradise festival in Germany (www.metal-hammer-paradise.de)!

We are very sorry for the difficult circumstances but we hope that everyone understands and we will rock even harder when we hit the road again with Motörhead!

Keep the faith!

Boxing on TV - featuring Saxon from Oldenburg, Germany

Thursday, 24 October 2013

Unplugged And Strung UpOn Saturday, 26 October 2013 Saxon will be performing at the ARD ( German National TV)

 

Taken from the upcoming album Unplugged & Strung Up, set to be released on 18th November, the band is ready to perform ‚Never Surrender‘ - accompanying the walk-in of Arthur Abraham into the boxing ring ! For all fans: watch out at 11 pm (German time) and don’t miss it!

 

Unplugged and Strung Up reveals layers and pieces previously dormant in many of the 14 classic Saxon songs chosen for this makeover, thanks to some ear-catching new arrangements and mixes. Biff and co re-evaluated, re-worked and re-energized the towering likes of "The Eagle Has Landed" and "Crusader" by introducing orchestral dynamics to offer added dimension.

 

   

Hi Metal Heads

Tuesday, 22 October 2013

Just home recovering from a fantastic North American tour.

We have to say thank you to all who made it work.

A special Thank you to Fozzy - whose help we couldn't have toured without.

Big Thanks to Rich "The Medicine Man" Ward for all the guitar help, and to Frank Fontsere for sharing his drum kit with Nigel Glockler.

ALL HAIL!! Jay our driver!

Thanks to Halcyon Way for turning up every day & not grumbling about anything (Never Surrender Boys!), and all the crew who worked their asses off for the bands: Ben, Marcus, Travis, Rodney and Penny; the promoters who took a gamble with the package and to all the fans who turned out in the thousands to see the shows.

If I've left anybody out Sorry - you did great also!

 

See you Soon

Biff and Saxon
