British heavy metal legends SAXON have unveiled the first single, “The Faith Healer”, from their upcoming album, “More Inspirations”, set for release on March 24 via Silver Lining Music. Watch the making of video for their astonishing take on THE SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY BAND‘s track,  below.

Following the release of “Inspirations” in 2021, “More Inspirations” is the second “deep dish” serving of the influences which have fed the mighty SAXON‘s immensely successful 40-plus-year career. Frontman Biff Byford comments: “We used to see THE SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY BAND play this back in the day, they started the set with it, such a fantastic song and fantastic band… big influence!”

Whether getting feral with THE ANIMALS‘ “We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place”, letting loose a high-octane take on ALICE COOPER‘s “From The Inside”, or laying down a ferocious tribute to KISS‘s “Detroit Rock City”“More Inspirations” is a joyous trip into the sounds which galvanized the Barnsley boys and continue to get spun on home stereos and tour buses.

Produced by vocalist/co-founder Biff Byford, with Seb Byford helping record the music alongside mixing engineer Jacky Lehmann“More Inspirations” also includes enthusiastic takes on RAINBOWZZ TOP and CREAM, as well as a thunderous “Razamanaz” by NAZARETH, a tasty take on THE WHO‘s “Substitute”, and a thick groove take on URIAH HEEP‘s “Gypsy”. Whether this is your first dance with such classic songs, or you’ve come to see where SAXON was born, “More Inspirations” delivers the goods and then some.
