Watch Motorhead Recording Their New Album
As Classic Rock reports, they’re currently in Los Angeles working on the follow-up to 2013’s Grammy-nominated Aftershock. Thankfully, they remembered to pack their smartphones because they’ve uploaded a few brief video clips of guitarist Phil Campbell laying down some tracks to their Instagram account. You can see and hear them below.
As for Lemmy, he and his trademark Rickenbacker 4004 bass showed up in a sepia-toned tweet with the caption, “Lemmy's working on bass and vocals today for our new album! #MotörheadForLife.” You can see more pictures from inside the studio on the band’s website.
While we don’t have any information when Motorhead is expecting to release their next record -- which will be their 22nd studio effort -- we do know that they’re working again with Cameron Webb, who has produced every Motorhead studio album since 2004’s Inferno.
Back in December we also learned that they will appear on the same bill as Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne at the Zequinha Stadium in Porto Alegre, Brazil on April 30. Motorhead are currently booked for a handful of South American dates across two weeks in April and May, and have a bunch of festivals booked for June and July. You can get the latest itinerary at their website.
