Read the press release to find out more!
Like the juggernaut you prayed would keep on crushing you, like the friend that still royally pisses off your parents and like a loyal standard of crunchy, greasy, punky, bluesy, gutsy screw-you rocknroll, Motrhead stride out through their 38th year brandishing more swagger and attitude then your ears could begin to comprehend.
On October 25th, 2013 Motrhead will deliver their 21st studio album, an enormous and prophetic Aftershock. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, it is a true leveler, a crushing confirmation of everything Motrhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motrhead in perhaps their best writing form for years. Theres swagger, theres punch, theres speed and theres dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motrhead is not simply a band, its a genre!
That genre, more than ever, resonates with hearty independence and swashbuckle. Whether its Heartbreaker throwing hooks and riffs into your head, the double-kick concussiveness of Paralyzed with Campbells fuelled attack, or the thunderous ride-off-the-Rickenbacker Motrcharge of Going To Mexico, Aftershock takes gleeful twists and turns which re-announce the Motrlegend. Theres the smokey biker bar blues in the shape of Dust And Glass, Lemmys late-night vocals evoking last-call and melancholy, the pogo-powered punk-spiked stab of Queen Of The Damned and the deliciously steamy, humid mournful Lost Woman Blues which midway through decides to kick over the stool and stomp out the saloon door.
Steal it if you must, buy it if you can! says Lemmy,whos 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 weve dug deep and produced some of our best work for a long time.
It is, says Mikkey Dee, a really, really strong Motrhead album, one that really does define everything this band stands for. Hes not wrong.
Because Motrhead are Motrhead are Motrheadand their Aftershock will be felt worldwide
