Motörhead announce new album; Lemmy's health scare revealed
21st album tentatively set for september release
I’m not usually one for posting such press releases as the “unveiling” of a new album title. Leave those to all the metal news dumps out there. But when it comes to Motörhead, I will make an exception. After all, it’s Motörhead, for crying out loud, and any year you get a new record from Lemmy, Phil, and Mikkey is a very good one.
So it gives me great pleasure to relay the news that Motörhead’s 21st album will be named Aftershock, and is tentatively slated for a September release. It was recorded earlier this year in Santa Ana, California with producer Cameron Webb, and according to Blabbermouth, will feature 13 songs, including such thought-provoking titles as “Dust And Glass”, “Knife”, “Going To Mexico”, “Lost Woman Blues”, “Death Machine” and “Heartbreaker”.
It’s also been revealed that Lemmy recently was fitted with a defibrillator after experiencing heart problems. So although he and Motörhead are still sounding as great as ever – check out the clip of the trio playing “Ace of Spades” at this week’s Golden Gods awards in London – here’s hoping Lemmy can live healthily enough to stick around for quite a while longer.
