Watch here, starts at the 3 Minute mark

In the chat, the three talk about the Saxon back Catalogue and special Saxon Poll on The Metal Voice FACEBOOK PAGE trying to find the fan favorite Saxon album of all time (which is still ongoing) and Nigel also gives some insight into the upcoming Studio Saxon Album which is being worked on and in it's early stages.

Nigel Glockler Told The Metal Voice about the next Saxon Studio Album," We put an effort in all the albums we do and try not to let anything sub-standard go in. We just started writing the next Saxon Album we have been in a rehearsal studio for a week in the U.K. just getting some ideas together. It's always hard work writing. "

He continued. "In terms of musical direction it will be pretty much where we are at with Battering Ram and Thunderbolt but maybe on this album a couple more groove oriented songs. I think those last two albums lacked a little groove. This new one will have a bit more groove, but still heavy. We are doing writing sessions right now and working through them. We got about 10-11 ideas/songs at the moment. I'm scheduled to go into the studio to do the drums beginning of November 2019. In terms of producer nothing official but it's pretty much a given who is going to do it. Nothing official yet. "

SAXON will release "The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live)" on August 2 via Militia Guard/Silver Lining Music. The effort celebrates all the classics from the group's early years with the modern classics which have continued to define SAXON as legends. It will be made in various formats: a triple-CD combo packed in a six-panel digipack with a 16-page booklet, digital download and streaming. "The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live)" will also be available as a 12-inch lid-off boxset, containing 5 x 12" 180-gram vinyl, "The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live)" tour pass and slipmat and an exclusive 40-page book.
