MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee has checked in with the following update:
“Finally every one! Aftershock in da house! I think we have a very special new Motörhead album for you to hear, a great step forward from the last few albums! I just fuckin love it!”
Motörhead recently announced a release party for their new album, Aftershock. The party will take place in West Hollywood, CA at the world-famous Rainbow Bar & Grill located at 9015 Sunset Blvd.
Listen to Aftershock before it is released on October 22nd and enjoy free Rainbow pizza and win Motörhead prizes. The first 100 fans get in free to the listening party upstairs.
The North American pre-order for Aftershock is live. You can pre-order the next chapter of the band’s legendary catalog now in Limited Edition Digipack, regular CD format and vinyl (gatefold – 180-Gram Single LP) format via the Amazon widgets below (digital coming soon).
Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, Aftershock it is a true leveler, a crushing confirmation of everything Motörhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motörhead in perhaps their best writing form for years. There’s swagger, there’s punch, there’s speed and there’s dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motörhead is not simply a band, it’s a genre!
“Steal it if you must, buy it if you can!” says Lemmy, who’s pride in the album is so immense that guests to his home and dressing room in the last couple of months have been treated to extremely loud airings of the rough mixes, while Phil Campbell adds, “I really think the variation on the album shows that we’ve dug deep and produced some of our best work for a long time.”
“It is,” says Mikkey Dee, “a really, really strong Motörhead album, one that really does define everything this band stands for.”
