Following the critically acclaimed release of their last album ‘Battering Ram’ in 2015, heavy metal giants Saxon are set to release their latest studio album, Thunderbolt, on February 2, 2018 featuring original Artwork by long time Saxon collaborator Paul Raymond Gregory.
Battering Ram will be followed weeks later with the first leg of the Thunderbolt 2018 European Tour. Saxon will be joined by fellow English rockers Diamond Head and metal trio Rock Goddess will be performing on the scheduled UK dates.
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 the British heavy metal wave. With over twenty studio albums under their belt, Saxon has made their steadfast dedication to creating a dynamic body of a work a staple of their career.
