SAXON To Release “Call To Arms” September 27th

On September 27th, Saxon will release their 19th studio album Call To Arms and will begin their stateside tour the following day.

“It’s important to keep one foot in the past and one foot very much in the present,” says vocalist Bill Byford. “At some points in your life, whether you’re younger or older, you do have these wonderful periods of ‘state of graceness’ where everyone likes everything you write. But you can’t keep being your own tribute band, you have to try and write great new songs, and you have to try to appeal to a younger audience. Saxon has been successfully doing that for the last decade, and the result is we still have our old fan base but we also have a whole new, younger one too.”

Saxon’s latest video clip, for the song “Call To Arms” will be premiered this Friday, August 5th at noon EST on America Online Noisecreep.

They’re also hookin you guys up with the “Digipack” version of Call to Arms, as it includes a glorious bonus – a free seven-track CD, ‘Live at Donington 1980.’
