Motörhead will embark on a North American tour this summer. These North American shows start in mid-August, with Saxon, Crobot and Anthrax as special guests on select dates, before ending with the Motörboat cruise between September 28th and October 2nd from Miami, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas. Motörhead is of course touring to present their forthcoming new record, Bad Magic.
The new Motörhead album is coming and it's some Bad Magic! The legendary British band will release their 22nd studio album on August 28th 2015 via UDR Music/Motörhead Music. Moreover, in their 40th anniversary year, the band also announces a 40th anniversary European tour in the fall. The new record Bad Magic was written and recorded in the studio together, for the first time in the Kilmister/Campbell/Dee era. Words like "loud, relentless, uncompromising and heavy as ever" are being used to describe the release.
Legendary British metallers Girlschool are gearing up to tour North America for the first time in 20 years, and it's happening this May. Girlschool will be previewing tracks from its new album, Guilty As Sin, set for release later this summer via UDR Music and, as a special treat, will be selling a special-edition EP titled Propaganda!.
Motörhead's South American tour dates didn't begin on a high note, quite the contrary. The legendary band was forced to pull out of the Monsters Of Rock Festival in Brazil over the weekend. Bassist/vocalist Lemmy Kilmister came down ill just hours before and the band cancelled their performance, sadly for Brazilian fans. However, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee did have a jam session with Sepultura members. The good news is that Lemmy is doing better now and the band will continue the South America dates.
Motörhead recently returned to the studio to begin work on their 22nd studio album. The heavy metal legendary band released their latest album in 2013, Aftershock, but the band also faced a tough time after cancelling shows due to health issues of frontman Lemmy Kilmister. All of that seems behind them now as they are currently recording in Los Angeles with their longtime producer Cameron Web. Check out below some of the pics from the recording process.
The new Motörhead video has premiered online and it is for the song "Lost Woman Blues". The song is, of course, taken from the band's latest album Aftershock released last year. The video for the song "Lost Woman Blues" was filmed live from The Warfield in San Francisco on April 18th, 2014. You can now watch the video over here.
Metal cruises seem to be the next big thing. We have 70000 Tons Of Metal, Barge To Hell, Progressive Nation At Sea, and now we also have Motörhead's first annual cruise MotörBoat, supposedly the loudest boat in the world! This cruise is happening in September this year and the first artists confirmed are none other than: Motörhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, and Wilson.
Things just don't seem to get better for Motörhead. After postponing their European tour last year and rescheduling it for this year, Motörhead now announce the cancellation of the European tour, that had been scheduled to start in February 2014. Lemmy Kilmister is dealing with health issues related to diabetes and it is still too soon to go out on tour. Even though he wants to rock out, health comes first. With all the cancellations, the band hasn't been able to showcase their new album Aftershock live very much.
Motörhead's new video for the song "Heartbreaker", from the metal trio's new album Aftershock, has debuted online. "Heartbreaker" incorporates concert footage from this year's Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards ceremony in the U.K., a 2010 Manchester gig and several 2011 shows (including Rock In Rio, Wacken Open Air Festival and Teatro Caupolicán in Santiago, Chile). Watch the video here which also features sketch art created by frontman/bassist Lemmy Kilmister.
Here it is folks, Motörhead's brand new album Afterschock is now available online in full for you to enjoy at this location. The legendary band is giving fans the chance to stream the new album a week before its release. Be sure to tell us what you think about the final product.
