Saxon have releaesd their new video for 'Thunderbolt', the title track of their new album which will be released on February 2nd 2018.

The 'Thunderbolt' album will feature original artwork by long time Saxon collaborator Paul Raymond Gregory.

Biff tells us:

"This is album twenty-two 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!"

Three weeks after release, the band will be embarking on the first leg of the 'Thunderbolt 2018 European Tour' where they will be joined by Diamond Head and Rock Goddess and Magnum on the Hull date only.

Dates for 'Thunderbolt Tour Part 2' will be announced in early 2018.

Biff continues:

"Ok, this is part 1 of the colossal 'Thunderbolt World Tour' and we're going to be touring the whole of 2018 so get your tickets and join the ride.

"It's gonna be fast and furious, dark and brooding. Monumental riffing and screaming vocals, loud and proud, it's going to be a Saxon tour, unique in every way."

Since the 1970s Saxon have shown their ability to take rock'n'roll and give it an electrifying edge which has since cemented their status as pioneers of British Heavy Metal.
