Saxon released the lyric video of the track “They Played Rock And Roll”, written for their colleagues of Motörhead.
The track is a tribute to the tour that Saxon and Motörhead did together in 1979 and is part of the new album Thunderbolt.
“It’s about the 80s. It’s about the Bomber tour and Ace Of Spades. That’s when we met. That’s about it, and the No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith album and the whole 80s scene that happened, “says lead singer Peter Byford.
Scheduled to be released on February 2 by Militia Guard / Silver Lining Music, Thunderbolt will have twelve songs and its title track has already won a clip.
