Saxon will release an extensive new hits collection this fall.
BMG will release the band’s new anthology Decade of the Eagle on Friday, Dec. 1. The compilation will feature 34 tracks taken from the band’s first nine albums and liner notes from front man Biff Byford outlining that period of the band’s career. It will also feature rare and classic pictures of the band from that period.
Byford said of the albums represented in this latest compilation that they represented a key moment in the band’s life, adding they are still as important today as they were in their original release.
“These are the albums from a time in the eighties that moved a generation of rock fans from around the world, when British rock was once again at the front,” Byford said. “Great times – never to be forgotten and still reverberating to this day.”
Along with its standard CD and LP release, Decade of the Eagle will also be released on a deluxe limited edition 4 LP and deluxe 2 CD platform. Pre-orders are open now here. The compilation’s full track listing is noted below.
Along with the new retrospective, the band will also soon release its latest live recording 10 Years of Denim and Leather on CD/DVD combo pack. Pre-orders for that recording are also open now. The band’s most recent live recording Let Me Feel Your Power was released Oct. 28, 2016.
The band will give audiences the chance to experience its live show in person next spring when it hits the road for the Firepower 2018 tour, headlined by Judas Priest. The tour, which will be in support of the band’s forthcoming album Firepower, launches March 13 in Wilkes-Barr, PA. Black Star Riders will serve as support alongside Saxon.
The tour’s current schedule is noted below.
