Saxon frontman Biff Byford was recently interviewed by UK’s eonmusic.
Back in mid-September 2019, Byford was diagnosed with a heart condition.
When asked about it, Biff said:
“Well, not dying last September was a good one. Yeah, we’ve had some ups and downs, some highs and lows, but we’re still on highs; at the moment we’ve sold out Hammersmith, and the Manchester Apollo, so we’re on a bit of a high at the moment, really. At the moment, I think a lot of people have come back to love Saxon again, and I think we’ve got a lot of new fans as well, so we’re very lucky at the moment. We’re as strong now as we’ve been in the last twenty-five / thirty years.”
In terms of Saxon‘s plans for 2020 and 2021, Byford indicated:
“Well, we’re doing a lot of festivals this year, and we’ve had some big things offered for next year. I think the new album will be out next year to coincide with the tour. We’ve been offered something quite special; I can’t tell you about it, but we might be going out with some other bands next year. Yeah, that will be happening, I think, so keep your eyes peeled!”
