British Heavy Metal legends Saxon are thrilled to announce a full UK headline tour in November 2022. General sale will go live on Friday 10:00 AM GMT on all main platforms, including www.myticket.co.uk and www.saxon747.com. Frontman Biff Byford comments: “Can’t wait to get out on a real tour again, it’s gonna be monumental! See you all out there … SEIZE THE DAY!”
The tour will see the band bringing to life their forthcoming album Carpe Diemacorss 14 cities throughout the country, with Diamond Head starring as special guest. Carpe Diem will be released on 4th February via Silver Lining Music and is now available for pre-order here.
Saxon already released two singles from the new record: “Remember the Fallen” here and “Carpe Diem (Seize the Day)” here.
Produced by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Exodus, Accep tand Priest guitarist) at Backstage Recording Studios in Derbyshire with Byford and Sneap mixing and mastering, Carpe Diem strikes the ear as one of the most essential British metal statements of the last few years and not lacking in pace or bite, an album which will ignite the joy in stalwart supporters and attract a whole new legion to the Saxon fold.
Despite a career which has spanned 44 years with over 15 million albums sold, including four top 10 UK albums, and having played to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide, Saxon are revving up for one of their busiest years yet.
