SAXON RE-ISSUE THREE MORE CLASSIC ALBUMS!

Saxon Logo
ON 10th August 2018, BMG ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE DELUXE REISSUES OF “INNOCENCE IS NO EXCUSE”, “ROCK THE NATIONS” and “DESTINY” ON DELUXE COLOUR/SPLATTER VINYL & CD MEDIABOOK.

 

5th July 2018 – Saxon, over the decades have gone from being pioneers of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, to becoming one of the most successful UK rock acts of all time. The truth, though, is that Saxon have always transcended trends and eras. From 1979’s ‘Saxon’ album to new album ‘Thunderbolt’, the band have enjoyed considerable success. Five Top 40 albums in the UK, with four Top 20 singles. And they were similarly successful in other parts of the world as well. It’s no wonder their influence spread across the globe, and played a crucial role in the way we look at hard rock and heavy metal today.

INNOCENCE IS NO EXCUSE

Originally released on 24th June 1985, Saxon seventh album ‘Innocence Is No Excuse’ was their first for then new label EMI after their departure from Carrere Records.

It was subsequently mixed at Wiseloord Studios in Hilversum, Netherlands. This version features the B-Sides of the singles ‘Back On The Streets’ and ‘Rock n Roll Gypsy’, plus demo versions of tracks from the album recorded at Chapel Studio, Thorsby.

DESTINY

Saxon’s ninth studio album, ‘Destiny’ was originally released on 20th June 1988 and was produced by Stephan Galfas at Hook And Manor studio in Berkshire, England. It is the only album to feature the rhythm section of Nigel Durham (drums) and Paul Johnson (bass) alongside long serving members Biff Byford (vocals), Graham Oliver (guitar) and Paul Quinn (guitar). Being a fan of Christopher Cross’ song writing, Biff came up with the idea of covering his track ‘Ride Like The Wind’ as the albums lead single, after giving it a ‘Wheels Of Steel’ style makeover. This version includes a 12″ mix of ‘I Can’t Wait Anymore’, plus live B-Sides and some alternative monitor mixes.. .
