We are very pleased to announce that Nordoff Robbins will be receiving over € 6,000 from Saxon for the charity soundcheck / meet & greet events that were held during the UK & European legs of the Worldwide “Call To Arms” 2011 tour.
The band wants to send out a big “Thanks” to all fans who participated in making this happen and we are all looking forward to continuing with this very special charity around the World wherever it is possible.
Hammer Time - Thank you for the many clicks on YouTube!
Saxon performed at the legendary Sweden Rock Festival last weekend to over 35,000 fans. Biff and the band will be taking a couple of well deserved weeks off before hitting the road again in late June. In the meantime, enjoy this live version of “Hammer Of The Gods” filmed at Sweden Rock 2011.
Biff Byford takes you through the "Call To Arms" album song by song in this special EPK (Electronic Press Kit). A lot of fans have already heard some or all of the music and now you can hear from Biff personally what inspired the band to write and produce the new album and why Lord Kitchener is on the front cover.
A star is born? Fans that have been following Saxon "Behind the scenes..." already know that the band's first video clip from "Call To Arms" features a special guest appearance from Biffs son Sebastian. Those who have not seen the "making of..." will have the chance to view "Hammer Of The Gods" in it's full version this Friday, June 10th.
