British new wave heavy metallers Saxon have announced that they will play Dublin's Academy on Monday April 27th in support of their brand new album 'Into The Labyrinth'.

The current line up of Biff Byford, Paul Quinn, Doug Scarratt, Nibbs Carter and Nigler Glockler, is the ninth since the band formed in 1977, and they were a major inspiration for the 1984 movie "This Is Spinal Tap."

Tickets priced €30 are on sale from ticketmaster and usual outlets now.
