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 Diem across 14 cities throughout the country, with Diamond Head starring as special guest. Carpe Diem will be released on 4 February via Silver Lining Music.
Saxon already released two singles from the new record: “Remember the Fallen” and “Carpe Diem (Seize the Day)”.
Produced by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Exodus, Accept and 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.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 4 February 2022.
