Motörhead promo 2015

Motörhead have released a lyric video for their new track “Electricity.”

The song is lifted from the band’s forthcoming new album, Bad Magic, scheduled for release on the 28th of August via UDR Music.

Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee recently said of Lemmy and Co’s new LP: “Before, we used to be in a rehearsal studio, write the songs, record one at a time.

“But here we recorded live, right away, as we had the song. It’s a very spontaneous record – I think that works best for us.”

Motörhead are set to play the following confirmed shows in January:

Jan 23rd: Newcastle City Hall
Jan 24th: Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
Jan 26th: Manchester O2 Apollo
Jan 27th: Swindon Oasis Castle
Jan 29th: London Eventim Apollo

Motorhead are planning to start work on their 22nd studio album in January says frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

The band returned to live action earlier this year and have just completed their first ever cruise concert tour. They’ll be playing a select series of dates in the UK in November, too.

Speaking on the Full Metal Jackie radio show, Lemmy said: “We’ll probably go in in January to start. We never have anything ready – we go into the rehearsal studio about a month before and rehearse songs, then we go into the studio.”

“I write the words in the studio, mostly. We don’t have a plan. Motorhead never has a plan.”

Following a series of health concerns, Lemmy also confirmed that he was continuing to feel healthier: “I gave up smoking, more or less. I more or less gave up drinking, or I switched to vodka instead of Jack Daniel’s.”

Motorhead will play the following dates in the UK in November:

Nov 04th: Manchester Apollo
Nov 06th: Birmingham NIA
Nov 08th: Wembley SSE Arena
