NEWS: 40 years on and Motorhead are still releasing albums as Bad Magic set for August release
IT's 40 years since Lemmy took blues based rock 'n' roll, melded it with punk and metal and unleashed Motörhead unto an unsuspecting world and re-defined the path metal would take - true harbingers of what was to become the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.
To celebrate the anniversary Motörhead are preparing for the August 28th release of their 22nd studio album 'Bad Magic'. And, whilst recent live shows have earned mixed reviews at best, the band are preparing for a 40th Anniversary European tour.
'Bad Magic' is amongst the few Motörhead albums where Lemmy, Phil and Mickey have recorded together in the studio at the same time. As Lemmy gleefully admitted in the past, previously he would leave Phil and Mickey to lay down some tracks and he would arrive, write some lyrics and lay down the bass parts.
Motörhead’s 40th Anniversary European Winter tour will start on November 15th 2015 at Le Zenith in Paris, ending on December 6th at the Hartwell Arena in Helsinki, Finland.
More dates will be announced soon, so keep checking the band’s official website www.imotorhead.com as well as the following social media platforms for details.
