  SAXON HAVE NOSFERATU AND MOTÖRHEAD SONGS IN THE CAN FOR NEW ALBUM
20th March 2017

There's a new Saxon album on the way, the follow-up to 2015s highly successful 'Battering Ram' opus, but it won't be available until early 2018 according to Biff.

Saxon are currently on tour throughout America with UFO and Jared James Nichols and Biff and guitarist Doug Scarrat took time out while in LA to talk to Canada's The Metal Voice in an interview conducted by former Anthrax vocalist Neil Turbin.

Biff said about the upcoming album:

"We've recorded seven songs already. I finished the vocals just before we came [to the US], actually. We've actually got three or four more songs, but I think we're gonna write three more for the album. We'll rent a studio when we're on festivals — about a week in the studio — and then we'll write some songs.

"It [is being recorded with British producer] Andy Sneap. He's gone off to do Judas Priest while we are here. In September, we'll be finished with that, hopefully. It will be out in 2018, maybe January."

"I have done some lyrics about Nosferatu, the Bram Stoker thing, a very dark song and I am also doing a Motörhead song called 'They Played Rock And Roll'.

"I asked Nibbs to write me some music that was like Motörhead, and he did. So it sounds very Motörhead-ish, but not Motörhead, if you know what I mean."

In the interview, Biff also reminisces about Lemmy and fields a silly question from Neil about a Saxon 'reunion' in his usual professional manner. Anyone who has seen Saxon at any time over the last few years will be well aware that this is the definitive line-up and long may it continue.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
