SPV/Steamhammer will release NWOBHM legends SAXON’s new studio album, THE INNER SANCTUM, on March 5th, 2007. Available on the same date will be Saxon’s new double live DVD, entitled TO HELL AND BACK AGAIN. More details on both releases to follow.
In regards to their new studio album, Saxon frontman Biff Byford recently stated, “On the next album we’re trying to make a massive effort to target England, to bring the profile back up, and we have been approached to make a documentary as part of this. It is not a reality show. The concert in Lincoln was part of the documentary, there will be many other things happening, as soon as we can tell people what’s happening you’ll be the first to know.”
Looks like March 5, 2007 is going to be a great day already! Saxon has made some truly great albums since 1997’s UNLEASH THE BEAST and their CHRONICLES DVD (2000) is superb. If they continue down the same path they have for the last 10 years, no one will be disappointed.
