Following the release of Inspirations in 2021, Saxon are back with a second ‘deep dish’ serving of their musical influences with More Inspirations, set for release on 24 March 2023 via Silver Lining Music. The first single is their fantastic version of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s The Faith Healer.
“We used to see The Sensational Alex Harvey band play this back in the day,” Biff Byford said. “They started the set with it. Such a fantastic song and fantastic band… big influence.”
Other tracks included are The Animal’s We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place, a high-octane take on Alice Cooper’s From The Inside and a ferocious tribute to KISS Detroit Rock City.
Also appearing are Razamanaz by Nazareth, a tasty take on The Who’s Substitute, and a thick groove take on Uriah Heep’s Gypsy.
More Inspirations has been produced by vocalist/co-founder Biff Byford, with Seb Byford helping record the music alongside mixing engineer Jacky Lehmann.
Saxon continue their Sieze The Day World Tour in mainland Europe in March 2023. Starting on 8 March 2023 in Luxembourg. Rage join as special guests on 9 March in Germany for another nine dates. Full details on the Saxon website.
