SAXON To Perform New Material For First Time In Greece

British heavy metal legends SAXON will perform material from their upcoming album, "Call To Arms", live for the first time when they kick off their European tour in Thessaloniki (April 6) and Athens, Greece (April 7) this coming week. The band's frontman, Biff Byford, told Rockpages.gr, "We were asked if we wanted to start the tour in Greece, and we said, 'Yeah, fantastic!' We have some great fans in Greece and the Greek people like heavy rock, heavy metal, so it's a great honor to start the tour from Greece, and you will be the first people to listen some new songs from 'Call To Arms'! I could not think of a better place to start the tour, really!"

"Call To Arms" will be released on May 23 via Militia Guard Music, UDR and EMI. The follow-up to 2009's "Into The Labyrinth" (SPV/Steamhammer) features a guest appearance by legendary keyboardist Don Airey (DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW).
