MotÃ¶rhead Announce New Album ‘Bad Magic’ for This Summer
Speed metal legends reveal fall tour plans, track list for August album.
MotÃ¶rheadÂ will celebrate their 40thÂ year as a band with an equally huge feat: releasing their 22nd studio album. The speed metal group announcedÂ Bad MagicÂ on theirÂ official siteÂ along with an August 28th release date.
Singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmister first indicated that the band would work on new material last September during an interview with radio showÂ Full Metal Jackie. He revealed that they would “probably” enter the studio inÂ January, though it was still tentative at the time.
“We don’t have a plan,” he explained. ” MotÃ¶rhead never has a plan.” TheyÂ ended upÂ hitting the studio in February, as confirmed byÂ Blabbermouth and several Instagram videosÂ of the band working with longtime producer Cameron Webb on new material.
Kilmister and Co. also announced initial dates for their Anniversary European tour, which will take place this fall. The tourÂ will kick off in Paris on November 15th and run through December 3rd, though more dates will be announced soon. This summer, MotÃ¶rhead will play a collection of festival dates in Europe and Asia, including Glastonbury and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival.
The band’s last album,Â 2013’sÂ Aftershock, was shrouded by Kilmister’sÂ heart condition thatÂ kept him off the road. They returned to touring in 2014 and launched the first annual MotÃ¶rboat CruiseÂ featuring fellow headliners Megadeth and Anthrax. The cruise will set sail again this September, featuring Anthrax andÂ Slayer.
