Saxon drummer reveals the band is writing another album

The Saxon drummer Nigel Glocker, revealed in an interview with The Metal Voice (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) that the band is already writing a new album but they will only release in 2024. Their most recent one is “Carpe Diem” released in 2022.


The band’s current line-up has Biff Byford (Vocals – Since 1975), Paul Quinn (Guitar – Since 1975), Nigel Glocker (Drums – 1981 to 1987, 1988 to 1999 and 2005 – present), Nibbs Carter (Bass – Since 1988) and Doug Scarratt (Guitar – Since 1995).

Nigel Glocker talked about the new Saxon album

“We’re right in the middle of another album already… We’re a ways off. The songs are being finalized as we talk, actually. But I think that we’re gonna release it in ’24. And then that will be [followed by] a big tour.”

“We’ve done the writing. But it’s just a case of recording it all now. But the writing process is the process that takes the time. Because you’ve got so many from ideas from everyone. Everyone [comes up] with ideas and we work on ’em, and that’s what takes the time.”

He continued talking about the band’s writing process: “And quite frankly, in a way it doesn’t really matter who writes what; it’s us five guys that make it what it is… No one brings in complete songs. People might bring in riff ideas or rhythm ideas, whatever, groove ideas, melody. So then we work through them all,” Nigel Glocker said.

The band has scheduled tour dates in Europe, United States and South American in 2023.

Founded in 1975, Saxon is one of the most successful and influential bands from the New Wave of The British Heavy Metal, that also had other groups like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.

Some of their most famous albums are “Wheels Of Steel” (1980), “Strong Arm Of The Law” (1980), “Denim and Leather” (1981), “Power & The Glory” (1983) and “Crusader” (1984).

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
