English heavy metal vets Saxon are currently embarked on a North American tour with heavy metallers Fozzy and Atlanta progressive metal/hard rock unit Halcyon Way that kicked off last week in Patchouge, NY at The Emporium. The trek, which runs through October 19 in Vancouver, BC, descended upon what seemed to be an oversold concert at B.B. King in the heart of Times Square, NYC this past Friday (9/13). Pics from that show are now available in this post.
Speaking of Halcyon Way, the guys are currently in the final stages of mixing their new LP, the follow-up to 2010’s Building the Towers, titled Conquer (pre-orders coming soon). The new effort was produced by Jon Bodan and Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer) with additional vocal production by Seth Von Paulus (Linda Perry, Alicia Keys, Crash Kings, Smashing Pumpkins). The official video for Conquer‘s first single, “Web Of Lies,” was released earlier this month and can be viewed after the gallery.
