Saxon detail part 2 of live package

Saxon have confirmed details of their upcoming live package – which follows on from 2001's Chronicles release.

The British metal icons will release Warriors Of The Road – The Saxon Chronicles Part II on November 7 in various formats, including DVD/CD and Blu-ray/CD as well as a digital download.

The package features extensive coverage of the band’s 2013 appearance at the UK’s Steelhouse festival plus full performances from Wacken Open Air and Download in 2012, along with the Graspop Metal Meeting in 2013. A further bonus disc will carry the Steelhouse festival set on CD.

It’s the successor to 2001’s Chronicles release, which documented elements of Saxon’s earlier career.

According to the band, the new package “bumps it up a notch by charting the return of the famous stage eagle back from Hamburg to a British show for the first time in decades, documenting the Steelhouse festival from dawn until long after the midnight hour.”

Saxon, who are working on a new album, will hit the road for a 36-date European tour starting later this month.
