Saxon announce UK tour with Girlschool and Fastway

British heavy metal icons, and former RAMzine cover-stars, Saxon are back with a new UK tour celebrating 2015’s album ‘Battering Ram’. Fastway and Girlschool will support.

Legendary front-man Biff Byford had this to say:

“Gonna be a great tour with Fastway and Girlschool…I think this line up is unique, you don’t wanna miss it.  Looking forward to battering some halls… Welcome to the metal church!”

For those who don’t know: Girlschool are British metal’s first ladies, and a favourite of late Motorhead frontman Lemmy.

Fastway features ex-Motorhead guitarist ‘Fast’ Eddie Clarke and UFO bassist Pete Way.
