Vocalist Biff Byford of British heavy metal legends Saxon has revealed to RockAAA that the band’s next project will see Saxon collaborating with Polish Philharmonic Orchestra to give some of the group’s most popular songs an orchestral overhaul. The entire event will be filmed for a DVD and a documentary will be made featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the preparations for the big concert.
