Saxon Posts New Video, “They Played Rock And Roll” Online

British heavy metal legends Saxon has posted a new video online for the song, “They Played Rock And Roll.” You can check it out below. The song and video is a tribute to Motorhead and the tour they embarked on together in 1979/80, something particularly poignant given the recent passing of former Motorhead guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke. It is also the second single from their forthcoming new album, “Thunderbolt,” which will be released on February 2nd through Militia Guard.

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

Today, the first song from “Pawn and Prophecy” has been made available for your listening pleasure. Check out “Avengers of Eden” below.

On the story behind the song, Mike Lepond says:

” ‘Avengers of Eden’ is based on ‘The Doom that came to Sarnath’ by H.P. Lovecraft. It’s one of the faster tracks on the record. The main riff was inspired by Van Halen’s, “House of Pain”. I turned that up to Motorhead/Exciter speed with a Dio style vocal.”
