Motorhead Release ‘Overkill’ Video From ‘Clean Your Clock’ Live CD/DVD
Anyone who was fortunate to have seen Motorhead knows that "Overkill' is one of the most energetic songs any rock and metal fan can experience live. With the Clean Your Clock live CD/DVD arriving soon, the Motorhead camp has unleashed the video of the iconic track from the forthcoming release.
Performed as the set closer, "Overkill" sees the band kick into high energy with Mikkey Dee's snare fill lead in and the infamous redlined distortion from Lemmy Kilmister's bass. Masterfully composed, the track sends fans in attendance on a thrill ride complete with the legendary 'Bomber' plane rig that takes flight over the stage throughout the track.
Our fallen hero Lemmy looks slightly frail onstage as he had battled numerous health issues on what turned out to be Motorhead's last tour. His perseverance was unparalleled as he took the stage each night in spite of his ailments to bring his unforgettable and distinguished brand of rock 'n' roll to generations of eager fans and Clean Your Clock stands as irrefutable proof.
Pre-orders for Clean Your Clock are available in a variety of options and more information can be found here. The release was culled from Motorhead's last two German performances, taken from the band's Munich shows on Nov. 20 and 21 of 2015.
Lemmy's bandmates guitarist Phil Campbell and the aforementioned Dee have both kept busy since the icon's tragic death in December of 2015. Campbell has started work on a humorous book of band anecdotes and has been playing with all three of his sons in the Phil Campbell All Starr Band. Meanwhile, Dee is currently sitting behind the kit with the Scorpions, filling in for James Kottak as the German legends enjoy a residency in Las Vegas and continue their world tour.
