MOTÖRHEAD is BACK – First Performances Since August 2013 Kick Off to an Electrifying Start!

April 15th, 2014

image001

Undisputed rock n’ roll legends MOTÖRHEAD kicked off their first live performances since August 2013 with an electrifying bang this past weekend – performing to completely packed, sold out crowds on Friday at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and on Sunday at Coachella.
MOTÖRHEAD performed 15 songs on Friday, including top tracks ‘Ace of Spades’ and ‘Overkill’, with Slash joining in (see below for some fantastic photos from the set). The exciting set included tracks encompassing the band’s career; including a track from the band’s new album Aftershock.

As mentioned above, not only did MOTÖRHEAD bring down the house at Club Nokia, but then turned right around to rock the sold out crowd at Coachella on Sunday! “Legendary London heavy metal band MOTÖRHEAD, with special guest Slash, got the devil horns approval of fans on Sunday at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,” states Wes Woods of the Los Angeles Daily News. In a Twitter post, Billboard adds, “MOTÖRHEAD, who have already pummeled the crowd with the heaviest riffs heard all weekend, welcome Guns N’ Roses guitar god Slash to the stage for a balls to the walls rendition of “Ace of Spades.” Any marbles Coachella had left are instantly lost.”

Apparently MOTÖRHEAD out-rocked other bands, even way across the festival grounds! According to Yahoo Music, “The roaring riffs of Slash and MOTÖRHEAD axeman Phil Campbell could be heard all the way across Coachella’s vast polo field, practically bleeding over into Arcade Fire’s Main Stage revue.”

MOTÖRHEAD will continue to perform throughout April, including another Coachella performance on April 20th. Other stops include Chandler, AZ, Las Vegas, NV, and San Francisco, CA.

MOTÖRHEAD Spring Performance Dates:
4/15 Chandler, AZ @ Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino
4/17 Las Vegas, NV @ Pearl Concert Theater
4/18 San Francisco, CA @ Warfield Theatre
4/20 Indio, CA @ Coachella

‘The Loudest Boat In The World’ Sails from Miami to Key West and Cozumel

September 22-26 – Onboard Carnival Ecstasy

 

Megadeth, Motörhead, and Anthrax - three of the greatest heavy metal bands in the world – will perform at the first annual Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise onboard the Carnival Ecstasy from September 22-26, 2014. In addition to these three rock giants, “The Loudest Boat In The World” will also feature performances from Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson, and some big surprises…more bands to be announced soon.

 

Motörhead’s Motörboat will sail from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. While onboard, guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with band members and will see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship.

 

Tickets for Motörhead’s Motörboat go on sale Tuesday, March 18 at Noon ET. The event website–www.MotorheadCruise.com–will launch later this week with full details and cabin pricing.

 

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister proclaims, “This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and no way of escaping! If you thought waves could rock a boat, you’ve got another thing coming with this lovely little outing!”

 

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine says, “There never has and never will be another cruise like Motörboat cruise. Come on a thrashing voyage with Motörhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde and all Lemmy‘s friends. This is the coolest way to ever see a metal concert.”

 

Scott Ian of Anthrax adds, “Anthrax, Motörhead and Megadeth at sea??? To quote Chief Brody [Jaws], ‘We’re going to need a bigger boat.’”

 

“It’s truly an honor to partner with one of the most iconic bands in rock music to deliver a one of a kind fan experience for ‘Motorheadbangers’ from around the globe,” says event producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment.

Motörhead–the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time–released their mammoth 21st studio album Aftershock in October 2013. Aftershock is one of Motörhead’s best-selling and highest-charting albums in 20 years, debuting at #22 on the Billboard 200. Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead–Lemmy Kilmister (bass, vocals), Phil Campbell (guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)–has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none. www.imotorhead.com

In a career nearing 30 years, heavy metal titans Megadeth have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning five consecutive platinum albums and numerous accolades along the way, including 11 Grammy nominations.  The band’s latest studio album, Super Collider, features vocalist/guitarist/founder Dave Mustaine once again reunited with guitarist Chris Broderick, bassist David Ellefson, and drummer Shawn Drover.  Released in June 2013, Super Collider debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, Megadeth’s highest chart debut since 1994’s Youthanasia. In April, Megadeth is set to embark on a world tour in over 25 countries across four continents. The tour follows a first-ever performance at Copley Symphony Hall on April 12, where Dave Mustaine will collaborate with the San Diego Symphony. www.megadeth.com

Since the September 2011 release of Worship Music, five-time Grammy-nominated Anthrax has experienced a tremendous comeback. “Classic era” vocalist Joey Belladonna rejoined the lineup in the spring of 2010, fronting for the band on The Big Four shows across Europe, at NY’s Yankee Stadium and at the SoCal Coachella site. In 2012, Anthrax–Joey Belladonna (vocals), Scott Ian (guitar), Charlie Benante (drums) and Frank Bello (bass)–became the first metal band to have its music played on Mars when its “Got The Time” was chosen by NASA to wake up the Mars Rover. The band is currently writing and demoing new material for the follow up to Worship Music that is expected out late 2014/early 2015. www.anthrax.com

The Carnival Ecstasy, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment, features a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, multiple dining options (including a 24-hour pizzeria), 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health club, a jogging track, as well as 12 lounges, bars and nightspots.

Motörhead cancel spring European tour

January 24th, 2014

An official statement reads as follows:

Motorhead

Motorhead

“Many concerted, diligent and focused efforts were made by founding member, and international icon, Lemmy Kilmister to deal with a range of health issues relating to diabetes. While there has been undoubted progress, Lemmy and the band were advised by doctors that it was still too soon to resume full touring activities, and so for the good of the future, the band and Lemmy reluctantly agreed to cancel.

“No-one is hurting more over this than Lemmy, and he feels the aggravation and inconvenience of every ticket, and every method of transportation, already paid for by loyal fans in anticipation of the tour. Being a road warrior of over 50 dedicated, non-stop years, it is equally distressing for him to be unable to occupy the top lounge of the trusty tour bus (his spiritual home) but Lemmy recognises that his long-term health must win.

“It goes without saying that Lemmy profusely apologises for inconveniences caused, but he does want everyone to know that he is continuing on the road to a full recovery, and that the prognosis long-term is very good.

“Fans have shown tremendous support for Lemmy, and it has meant so much to him. As he told Rolling Stone: ‘Oh, man, the fans were unbelievable when I got sick. No bitching. It was all, take your time, get better, don’t worry, we’ll wait for you, get well.’

“Rome was not built in a day… like Lemmy’s health. But there is some strong light at the end of the tunnel here. We thank you so very much for your continued love, support and understanding.”

MOTÖRHEAD To Make Triumphant Return At Wacken Open Air 2014

December 23rd, 2013

LEMMYFollowing latest year’s worrying and abrupt appearance at Germany’s Wacken Open Air, MOTÖRHEAD will return for the 25th anniversary in Wacken, Germany from July 31st – August 2nd.

Wacken remark: “After serious health problems and many cancelled shows, Lemmy played at the Black Stage at Wacken last year. But after some songs he had to quit the stage, it was just too much for him. The crowd was worried but also thankful and the ‘Lemmy! Lemmy’ shouts got everyone goose pimples. And Lemmy wants to return! And this means we can now announce: Motörhead. The band is true iconic for the heavy metal scene and especially band leader Lemmy was always regarded as indestructible. The strong new album Aftershock was released a few weeks before and it is already the 22nd Album of the band. And 2014 they will rock Wacken for the 8th time!” Read the rest of this entry »

Motörhead postpone forthcoming European tour due to Lemmy’s health

October 29th, 2013

Motorhead - Hki17.JPGMotörhead have cancelled their upcoming Euro tour. Here’s an update from Lemmy explaining the situation…

“I have to sadly let you know that Motörhead has had to postpone the forthcoming European tour until early next year, 2014.

We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don’t worry – I’m not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.

It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn’t quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would’ve disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated…and know that I’m getting stronger and stronger every day, so watch out next spring Europe and we will see you then.

Thank you all,

Lemmy”

MOTÖRHEAD Announces North American Pre-Order Information for “Aftershock”

September 12th, 2013

image002

The North American pre-order for MOTÖRHEAD’s Aftershock is live! That’s right, you can pre-order the next chapter of MOTÖRHEAD’s legendary catalog now in Limited Edition Digipack format via Amazon.com at this link. The album is also available now in regular CD format and vinyl (gatefold – 180-Gram Single LP) format (digital coming soon). Since the pre-order launch yesterday, Aftershock has already shot to #1 on Amazon’s Movers & Shakers chart and #3 on Amazon’s Hard Rock & Metal chart.

Aftershock, MOTÖRHEAD’s mammoth 21st studio album, hits stores in North America on October 22, 2013 via UDR Music. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, Aftershock 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.

Aftershock track listing:

Heartbreaker
Coup de Grace
Lost Woman Blues
End Of Time
Do You Believe
Death Machine
Dust And Glass
Going To Mexico
Silence When You Speak To Me
Crying Shame
Queen Of The Damned
Knife
Keep Your Powder Dry
Paralyzed

With Aftershock, 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!

That genre, more than ever, resonates with hearty independence and swashbuckle. Whether it’s “Heartbreaker” throwing hooks and riffs into your head, the double-kick concussiveness of “Paralyzed” with Campbell’s fuelled attack, or the thunderous ride-off-the-Rickenbacker Motörcharge of “Going To Mexico”, Aftershock takes gleeful twists and turns which re-announce the Motörlegend. There’s the smoky biker bar blues in the shape of “Dust And Glass”, Lemmy’s 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.

MOTÖRHEAD are MOTÖRHEAD are MOTÖRHEAD…and their Aftershock will be felt worldwide…

Silence, silence
Silence when you speak to me!
-Lemmy Kilmister

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 rock’n’roll, MOTÖRHEAD stride out through their 38th year brandishing more swagger and attitude then your ears could begin to comprehend.
