It will be released on August 18th through Edsel and include the albums Solid Ball Of Rock, Forever Free, Dogs Of War, Unleash The Beast, Metalhead, Killing Ground, Lionheart, The Inner Sanctum and Into The Labyrinth along with a host of bonus content.

A statement reads, “The set comprises 14 discs – not only all nine of Saxon’s studio albums from 1991 to 2009 but eight bonus tracks and two bonus CDs – Classics Re-Recorded originally issued with the initial pressings of Killing Ground, and a Lionheart rough studio mix which was originally issued on the 2006 limited edition.”

The package also contains three bonus DVDs featuring documentaries, interviews, live performances, promos and studio footage which were originally issued with Lionheart, The Inner Sanctum and Into The Labyrinth.

Also included, is the 2007 Pablo Aragues-directed Spanish art film, Perceval, which stars Saxon frontman Biff Byford as King Arthur.

The Solid Book Of Rock will be packed in a 24-page, 12×12 booklet featuring lyrics, credits and photographs, while Paul R Gregory has designed new cover artwork for the collection.

Buford says. “It’s worth getting just for the artwork. A great piece of Saxon history – and don’t forget I get to play King Arthur. I didn’t get the Oscar that year – or anything else for that matter.”

A limited edition version containing a print signed by Byford is exclusively available for pre-order through Amazon.

This Autumn Harper Collins non fiction are publishing What Does This Button Do?, the hugely anticipated memoir from Iron Maiden frontman and rock legend, Bruce Dickinson.

One of the world’s most storied musicians, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too. A true polymath, Bruce is, or has been, an airline pilot and captain, an aviation entrepreneur, a beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist, radio presenter, TV actor and a world-class fencer.

Now, for the first time, Bruce tells his story in his own words. In What Does This Button Do?, Bruce (a man who famously never gives interviews about his personal life) shares the most fascinating recollections, including his thirty years with Maiden, the early days, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, going solo, realising his dream of flying jumbo jets and his recent battle with tongue cancer. Bruce Dickinson is so much more than the frontman of one of the biggest bands on the planet. A rock icon, a true renaissance man, Bruce has been, and remains, a man of legend.

Bold, honest, intelligent and very entertaining, What Does This Button Do? is the long-awaited window into the life, heart and mind of one of our most adventurous and multifaceted sons.

What Does This Button Do? will be released on October 19th, but is available for pre-order, here.

Stone Temple Pilots roared on to the scene 25 years ago with their raucous debut Core. A breakout success, the album peaked at #3 on the Billboard charts, dominated radio waves with hits like Sex Type Thing and Wicked Garden, and has been certified 8x Platinum by the RIAA. The band also took home the 1994 Grammy® Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their smash single Plush.

To mark the legendary album’s silver anniversary, Rhino will release two versions on September 29th, which is 25 years to the day of the album’s original debut. The first is the Core: Super Deluxe Edition ($79.98), which includes four CDs featuring a newly remastered version of the original album, plus more than two hours of unreleased demos and live performances, including the band’s performance on MTV Unplugged. Also included is the original album on vinyl and a DVD that contains a 5.1 Surround Sound Mix of the album along with videos for the album’s four singles. The set, limited to 15,000 copies worldwide, comes packaged in a richly detailed hardcover book (12 x 12) with rare and unseen photographs. The music from the Super Deluxe version will also be available via digital download and streaming services.

Fans can pre-order a limited edition bundle at stonetemplepilots.com.

Also available on the same day is a 2-CD Core: Super Deluxe Edition ($19.98) containing a newly remastered version of the original album expanded with rare b-sides and previously unreleased demos. A single disc remaster of the original album will be available as well.

Stone Temple Pilots (guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz, and vocalist Scott Weiland) debuted with Core in the fall of 1992 and by the following summer were one of the biggest rock bands on the scene, powered by exhilarating live shows and a string of now-classic songs from the album, remastered here for the very first time.

Nearly all of the music on the second disc of both versions is making its commercial debut. Of the nine demos included, four were recorded between 1987 and 1990 when the band was known as Mighty Joe Young. One of those, Only Dying, is an unheard song the band had planned to re-record in 1994 for The Crow Soundtrack. The idea was later scrapped after the star of the film, Brandon Lee, was killed during production. The disc continues with five unreleased demos from their original Atlantic sessions and concludes with four b-sides, including the jazzy Swing Type Version of Sex Type Thing, as well as two acoustic versions of Plush—the “Acoustic Type Version” recorded with the full band and the rarely heard “first take” that was recorded by Weiland and Dean DeLeo for MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball in 1993.

The third disc contains two fiery live recordings from the summer of 1993, the first an unreleased performance at Castaic Lake Natural Amphitheater near Los Angeles and the second from the Reading Festival, making its U.S. debut here. These high-energy shows feature performances of all but two songs from Core as well as an early live version of Lounge Fly, a song the band has just written a month earlier that would appear the following year on the band’s second album Purple.

The band’s iconic appearance on MTV Unplugged, recorded in November 1993, gets its first official release on the final CD in the set. This would be their last performance in support of Core and includes reworked, acoustic versions of Wicked Garden and Sex Type Thing, the debut performance of Big Empty, which would later appear on Purple, and a cover of David Bowie’s Andy Warhol.

Core: Super Deluxe Edition also features the original album pressed on vinyl, and a DVD that presents a 5.1 Surround Sound Mix of Core together will all four of the videos made for the album: Sex Type Thing, Plush, Wicked Garden, and Creep.
