Saxon Pay Tribute To Motörhead With “They Played Rock And Roll”

Saxon will be releasing their 22nd studio album, Thunderbolt, on February 2nd via Militia Guard (Silver Lining Music), and we have another new song for your listening pleasure today. The heavy metal legends shared the title track a few weeks ago, and now they are streaming their tribute to Motörhead online.

Frontman Biff Byford states, “The song tells the story of Saxon’s very first tour in 1979 with Motörhead. I want people to get a flavor of what it was like in the UK in 79/80 for Saxon and Motörhead at the start of the 80s musical revolution.
