The headline pretty much says it all but NWOBHM front runners Saxon have announced that they are preparing to record a new album set for release early 2013. The band released the following statement about the as of yet untitled album:
“Hi everybody! We are very busy these days with the new album and we have already a few ideas together. I am writing melodies and lyrics and arranging them into songs. We will give the rest of the band a break for hols. After that we have a full session in April before heading to the mighty sugar loaf and rock Sao Luis! We are really looking forward to coming back to celebrate an awesome party with our South American fans! Needless to say that the Rock In Den Ruinen Festival in Germany is also going to be great!
