Saxon, the legendary English heavy metal band, has just released their new lyric video for “They Played Rock And Roll” from their new album Thunderbolt. This is the band’s 22nd album which when you think about it is absolutely insane!

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