British heavy metal legends Saxon have released a video to accompany their ‘They Played Rock And Roll’ track.
The track is from their forthcoming album ‘Thunderbolt’ and will be released on February 2nd via Militia Guard. This will be the band’s 22nd studio album.
The song is a tribute to fellow British band Motörhead and the tour they embarked on together in 1979/1980.
“The song tells the story of Saxon’s very first tour in 1979 with Motörhead. I want people to get a flavour of what it was like in the UK in 79/80 for Saxon and Motörhead at the start of the 80s musical revolution” says frontman Biff Byford.
