Despite releasing a stellar new album, 'Aftershock,' it's been a tough year for Motörhead as frontman Lemmy Klimister has dealt with a variety of health issues that have kept him off the road. While the band has vowed to return to the road and have played a few shows this year, Lemmy has revealed he's still not fully recovered and the group will postpone dates until early next year.
Motörhead have been kicking around for nearly 40 years now, churning out albums at a feverish pace since 1977. ‘Aftershock’ marks their 21st studio album and sounds exactly how fans expect it to sound: like Motörhead. Lemmy Kilmister and company have never strayed from the path of fast-paced rock ‘n’ roll with the ethos of ‘Everything Louder Than Everything Else.’ There is no such thing as a bad Motörhead album, just ones that are better. In the case of ‘Aftershock,’ it happens to be one of the band’s best.
In one week from today, Motorhead will release yet another rock 'n' roll album, their 21st to be exact. 'Aftershock' is shaping up to be another solid release by the iconic trio, so we look forward to the record's release by bringing you the classic clip for 'Killed by Death' as our Video of the Day!
Yippie! It might only be Tuesday, but this week is shaping up to be a pretty stellar one so far. It has been a long wait (three years) for Motörhead fans who are used to the band's routine of cranking out a new album at least every two years since 1991. With the release of 'Aftershock' still a week away, fans can rejoice and stream the full album courtesy of Yahoo! Music (listen below).
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has experienced a menagerie of health problems this year, but in a new and very comprehensive interview, Lemmy says that he's been "feeling better." In fact, the somewhat soft-spoken frontman sounded off with aggressive detail about others trying to control his actions, living a life without regrets and much more.
The release of a new album is always a time of excitement for a band's fans. In Motorhead's case, that's especially true with their latest effort 'Aftershock,' because of Lemmy Kilmister's health issues. Fans are happy not just because the album's release is imminent (Oct. 22), but also because the legendary frontman is still ticking after taking a licking this year.
