MOTORHEAD ROCK N' ROLL HALL OF FAME VOTE

Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno

Our new release, “Under Cöver” will hit in September – 2017

Covers compilation to include unreleased version of David Bowie’s “Heroes”

ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”

“He was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”

To that ethic, the rest of the album contains loud and proud, raucous and raging Rock ‘N’ Roll takes on the likes of “God Save The Queen” (Sex Pistols), “Cat Scratch Fever” (Ted Nugent), “Rockaway Beach,” (The Ramones), Breaking The Law” (Judas Priest) and “Whiplash” (Metallica) which earned the band a Grammy in 2005 for Best Metal Performance.

“We were happy with them at the time and we’re happy with them now!” affirms Campbell, whilst Dee says, “We should remember that it’s about having some fun with songs that we all loved.”

So there you are. If that doesn’t have you scrambling for your music delivery device, then check your pulse pronto. Or just start scrambling for a copy of Under Cöver immediately. You won’t be sorry.

World premiere of Airbourne video – “It’s all for Rock n’ Roll”

With a kind salute and appreciation we are happy to premiere “It’s all for Rock n’ Roll”

 

‘IT’S ALL FOR ROCK N’ ROLL’…

With the new single from Aussie rockers Airbourne being an anthemic tribute to Lemmy, a man the band looked up to and loved, both as a friend who featured in their debut video and as a genuine legend of the rock ‘n’ roll world, it was clear that the accompanying promo clip had to be something special.

That the boat had to be pushed out.

Or, in this case, the ‘bomber’ flown!

Airbourne salute the Motorhead camp for their tremendous and continued help in making the ‘It’s All For Rock N’ Roll’ video a true event for fans around the world – the ‘bomber’ (one of rock’s most celebrated stage props) and the archive footage adding genuine emotional weight to both the promo clip and the song itself.

Say Airbourne front-man Joel O’Keeffe: “When Motorhead played, it didn’t matter what was happening in the world at that point – Motorhead was onstage, that was it. Everything was dialed in and the crowd were there and lovin’ it – all for rock ‘n’ roll!

“Lemmy meant so much to us, and so much to rock ‘n’ roll itself…”

 

How the statue of Lemmy came to be

All at imotorhead and the entire rock world mourned when Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister, our legendary frontman, died from prostate cancer and heart failure in December 2015.

Soon afterwards, Katon de Pena, vocalist for California thrash-metallers Hirax, launched a crowdfunding campaign to immortalise him with a statue. The campaign ended on $22,771 – more than the initial $21,000 goal – and the statue was erected in August.

Now director Rocio Romero has released a short documentary detailing how the initial idea for the statue became reality. Watch the six-minute film below:
