Saxon have released a video for Battering Ram, the title track of their forthcoming album. Battering Ram is the follow-up to 2013's Sacrifice, and will be released October 16.
Like Sacrifice, the album was produced by Andy Sneap at his Backstage Recording Studios in Derbyshire. "Andy has been in charge of everything with this album,' says singer Biff Byford. "I keep on overview of it all, but he’s done a great job and we’re both pleased with the results. We have a great partnership."
The song Battering Ram is about the fans who gather at the stage barriers at Saxon shows. “When I’m writing lyrics I like to switch back and forth between complex things, reality and rock’n’roll,” says Byford.
"Battering Ram" is available for pre-order now via iTunes, with "Battering Ram" as the instant grat track.
Coming soon, "Battering Ram" will be available for pre-order via Amazon and various formats will include CD in ecolbook, 180 gram vinyl, limited edition boxset (containing CD, vinyl and a bonus CD with the band performance of their "Denim & Leather" tour "Saxon Over Sweden 2011", featuring 18 tracks).
