Hi all out there in ROCKTOPIA !

February 27th, 2010

Just a quick blog. We have been working on the Heavy Metal Thunder album this week and we’ve decided to include a short film of download 2008. We feel this was such an important event in our recent career that it has to be included.This means the release to those of you who have pre ordered it there will be a delay for a while. After all it’s all about quality not quantity. After seeing all of the DVD last night I think you will love it, so don’t blame Coolhead. It’s my fault wanting to give you the best documentary that we possibly can.

On another matter we have just finished rehearsing for the tour and we will be playing Requiem We Will Remember in memory of our good friend Mick Cox guitarist for Rose Tattoo who went on to the other side recently.

To Absent Friends

Biff Byford.

Hi from planet Saxon

February 3rd, 2010

A bit of news from the hard side
Unfortunately we will not be playing a saint gorges day concert this year.
Every one feels we have played a lot in the uk two tours last year and they were amazingly successful, there may be some festival shows in the uk but we have no info on these yet.
We are doing festivals across Europe in summer, south America is a possibility and maybe some shows in north America we should know soon.

The riffking champion will be announced in the next couple of days

That’s all for now

Keep the faith
