Watch The New Video For “The Pilgrimage” By Metal Legends Saxon

Listen To "Carpe Diem (Seize The Day), The First Single From New Saxon Album

Hot on the heels of their 40th Anniversary Castles and Eagles shows at sold out venues (iconic Manchester O2 Apollo and London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo), British Heavy Metal legends Saxon release the third single, “The Pilgrimage”, taken from their new album, Carpe Diem (OUT February 4th via Silver Lining Music).


“Pilgrimage is a fantastic word” says Byford, “People go on pilgrimages all the time, not just in a historical or religious sense, but it’s about going and visiting either a place that you feel is special in your life or somebody that’s meant something in your life. You can go on a pilgrimage to go see your great grandfather who died in the First World War for instance. They’re journeys of great weight and importance.”
