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.

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.
