The details for Saxon's 22nd, yes 22nd studio album Thunderbolt have been revealed and we're really excited about that. The album will be released on February 2nd through Silver Lining Music. Down below, you can also see the cover artwork and the full track listing.
The cover artwork was designed by Paul Raymond Gregory, who has done the artwork for many of the band's albums over the years. Like the album's predecessors: Sacrifice and Battering Ram, the album was produced by none other than Andy Sneap, so expect the same type of production on Thunderbolt.
To celebrate, Saxon will begin the Thunderbolt with a string of dates in Europe and the U.K, followed by an awesome North American tour supporting Judas Priest along with Black Star Riders. Not a bad way to kick off an album cycle, eh?
