Motorhead - the name alone stands on it's own, a band that lives according to their own rules. A band that has never sacrificed anything and has always remained true to what they are. Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee - what you see is what you get! Lemmy's enthronement as an Icon of Rock happened a while ago and proves that Rock and Roll is alive and exhilarating. (On June 16th Lemmy received the Mojo Icon Award).
Fans, new and old, have been bowing to and worshipping Motorhead for over 30 years. Fellow musicians - like Dave Grohl, Ozzy Osbourne ,The Ramones, Guns N' Roses & Metallica have all paid tribute to the Motorhead legend - in one way or another.
Having completed a highly successful tour of the US last year with Judas Priest and Heaven & Hell, Motorhead continue to answer the global demand for their live assault in 2009. A sold-out tour of South America took place in April, the band is currently in Europe playing some of the summer's biggest festivals, and they will return to the US in September for a real rock'n'roll bill with The Reverend Horton Heat and Nashville Pussy. Without taking a breath, they will then return to Europe for indoor dates throughout the continent, with support from eternally cool cohorts The Damned and Girlschool. In the spring of 2010, the band will commence work on their as-yet untitled new album.
Motorhead is currently celebrating its 35th anniversary. The Grammywinning band will release it's new album, “The Wörld is Yours,” in January, and kicks off it's 2011 North American tour on Jan. 25 in Anaheim, California.
