Biff Byford “2018 is turning out to be another monumental year for Saxon. After storming across the North America with the Thunderbolt tour, we are releasing ‘Secret of flight’ from the album as the new single & video.

About the new video for ‘The Secret of Flight’ Biff adds –
“Being in a touring band we fly a lot so I was sat on a plane one day thinking in the big scheme of things we didn’t discover how to fly until quite recently in man’s history - 1903 that’s only 115 years ago.
I thought it would make a good subject so there you go…. the secret of flight!”
