Biff Byford commented:

2018 is turning out to be another monumental year for Saxon. After storming across the North America with the Thunderbolt tour, we are releasing ‘Secret of flight’ from the album as the new single & video. The track has already proven to be a live monster song so as we are half way through the year’s tour schedule, it’s apt that we release it now. With that in mind, we would also like to share the following up to date stats with you all:

About the new video for ‘The Secret of Flight’ Biff adds –

Being in a touring band we fly a lot so I was sat on a plane one day thinking in the big scheme of things we didn’t discover how to fly until quite recently in man’s history – 1903 that’s only 115 years ago.

I thought it would make a good subject so there you go…. the secret of flight!”
