Facebook site has cracked the 50.000 friends mark and studio update

Friday, 30 March 2012

Hi everybody!

We are very busy these days with the new album and we have already a few ideas together. I am writing melodies and lyrics and arranging them into songs. We will give the rest of the band a break for hols. After that we have a full session in April before heading to the mighty sugar loaf and rock Sao Luis! We are really looking forward to coming back to celebrate an awesome party with our South American fans! Needless to say that the Rock In Den Ruinen Festival in Germany is also going to be great!

And don’t forget: Our new DVD will hit the stores in April! We are very proud of this product as it reflex Saxon at its best: Big productions, great performances and a fabulous audience!!! We will keep you updated where you can get the special limited fan edition!

When we've  finished our short live break we will enter the studio in the UK and will start recording the new album. Looking at a release date in the beginning of next year!

Meanwhile we would like to thank every single one for your great support and are so proud that our official Saxon Facebook site has cracked the 50.000 friends mark!!!

We love you and keep the faith!
