Excerpts from the interview
When the new album compared to the last album
"The Pandemic obviously screwed up the timeline, I actually recorded the drums at the end of 2019. We have changed a few things since. The original release date for the album was February of last year but the Pandemic hit and the record company didn't want to release it cause you couldn't go on tour. I think the Pandemic just gave us more time to hone things down. "
When asked about how the band continues to release new music while other bands just rely on playing their greatest hits
" With us (Saxon) we just enjoy writing, that is what we are in It for and doing new albums and coming up with new music. This is the way we do it, seems to be working ok so far. (laughs).
When asked about what is next for Saxon
"We did those two gigs last weekend, Hammersmith and Manchester and the next thing for us is festival season. So we got about two three months off so we already started thinking about getting ideas ready for the next album, rather than waste time, let's get ahead of the game so when that time comes around we are in good shape."
