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.
Tuesday, 22 October 2013Just 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

The British heavy metal legends produce a series of alternative takes on classic favorites to herald a worthy new entry to the Saxonian Institute of Metal.
There is always feral 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.
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. Recorded, mixed and mastered with Andy Sneap in Derbyshire, UK earlier this year, 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. "Frozen Rainbow" from the band's 1979 debut, gets a stunning acoustic reprisal which transports it into a power ballad to be proud of, whilst "Red Star Falling" soars and sweeps the emotions with it's orchestrally-arranged dovetail.
As if this reinvention wasn't enough, Saxon superfans and collectors can purchase a digipack version of the release which will include 2002's storming set of full-volume, pedal-to-the-metal re-recorded hits Heavy Metal Thunder. Featuring staple Saxon stormers such as "Motorcycle Man", "Strong Arm of the Law" and "Dallas 1pm" it is a quintessential part of any collection.
