Biff Byford has told Germany's Rock Antenne that SAXON has always written music that was intended to be performed in concert. "We're a big live band," he said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). "I think all the bands are from that era that are still around — [JUDAS] PRIEST and [IRON] MAIDEN, SAXON, WHITESNAKE. They still do a lot of touring, because our music is written for live — we write music to play live, and we always have done. I think maybe in the late '80s, we sort of made more records for the studio, but I soon changed that around again and went back to writing songs that we wanted to play live. And I think that's one of the big keys. Then you don't get too carried away with all the arrangements and all the production. We use a lot of keyboards and effects and things to make things interesting, but we're not trying to write for anybody in particular — we're not trying to have a radio hit or a hit video on YouTube. We're just trying to write great songs that we can play live."
