The lovely chaps of Motorhead recently reached out to a young fan after he was sent home for wearing a Motorhead England sweatshirt to school.

Break out the poker chips and a bottle of whiskey because Motörhead have revealed the full details on their 21st studio album, 'Aftershock.' After 38 years of unrelenting outlaw attitude and their trademark take on blues and speed fueled rock, the band haven't let up one bit. With songs like 'Silence When You Speak to Me' and 'Keep Your Powder Dry,' 'Aftershock' promises to deliver the Motörhead mark of quality we've been given for nearly four decades.
Even though Motorhead had to cancel their summer European concert dates due to frontman Lemmy Kilmister's health issues, the band is still on track to release their latest album 'Aftershock' this fall and have unveiled the track listing (see below).
