On February 21st 2020, legendary Saxon frontman Biff Byford will step into the spotlight with his first-ever solo album, ‘School of Hard Knocks’.
The North of England is everything you saw in Game of Thrones and more. It is the true heart of England, the region where its soul resides, and Biff Byford has earned the right to be considered its true heavy metal bard.

 

Biff takes on not just tales and stories from his heart and soul, but also investigates the Middle Ages and Medieval history amongst other subjects.
It’s been great to break new ground, explore new territories and work with some old friends”, concludes Biff, “and having waited so long to make this album, I have to say, I am delighted with it! It has a whole range of styles, from the ridiculously heavy to ballads, and it is certainly my album.”
Available to pre-order from October 25 on CD, Vinyl, Digital formats and special D2C bundles Here
GLASGOW SHOW RE-SHEDULE

Saxon announce a new date for Scottish fans to see the band following the cancellation of the Glasgow Braehead Arena show on October 18th 2019 due to Lead Singer Biff Byford’s recent heart operation.

The new date is Friday March 27th 2020 and the venue is Glasgow Barrowland Ballroom.

Due to venue restrictions this show will not be a “Castles & Eagles” production as previously advertised.

Biff Byford “I am very sorry that we couldn’t reschedule the previously announced show at Braehead Arena with the full production we had planned, but after a couple of weeks of trying to get availability at Braehead Arena and other Scottish venues that could house the production we had drawn a blank. We decided we had to play a show for all our fans in Scotland and Barrowland’s stepped up with clearing the date we needed. Unfortunately due to Barrowland’s size restrictions we cannot put the Castles & Eagles production in and hope you all understand, but we will try to make this as special a show for you as possible”

Special guests on this show will be Girlschool.
