SAXON isn't wasting any time in 2018. Following the critically acclaimed release of 'Battering Ram' in 2015, the heavy metal giants are set to release their latest studio album, Thunderbolt, on February 2nd via the Militia Guard label (Silver Lining Music).

The new album Thunderbolt will feature original Artwork by long time Saxon collaborator Paul Raymond Gregory.
"This is album 22 and it's called Thunderbolt. It's a Storming Smashing Thundering collection of tracks we've been crafting with Producer, Andy Sneap and it's finished ready to be unleashed. Stand clear and fasten your seat belts!" says Biff Byford.
