Motörhead back in business

Undisputed rock n’ roll legends Motörhead kicked off their first live performances since August 2013 with an electrifying bang this past weekend – performing to completely packed, sold out crowds on Friday at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and on Sunday at Coachella. Motörhead performed 15 songs on Friday, including top tracks ‘Ace of Spades’ and ‘Overkill’, with Slash joining in. The exciting set included tracks encompassing the band’s career; including a track from the band’s new album Aftershock.

Motörhead is taking part in Record Store Day 2014 in a big way – offering a must-have collectible item! The band is releasing a limited and numbered special edition Aftershock picture disc vinyl, exclusively for Record Store Day on April 19th. The 180-gram picture discs are limited to 4,500 units worldwide and are individually numbered.

Apparently Motörhead out-rocked other bands, even way across the festival grounds! According to Yahoo Music, “The roaring riffs of Slash and Motörhead axeman Phil Campbell could be heard all the way across Coachella’s vast polo field, practically bleeding over into Arcade Fire’s Main Stage revue.” Motörhead will continue to perform throughout April, including another Coachella performance on April 20th. Other stops include Chandler, AZ, Las Vegas, NV, and San Francisco, CA.

4/15 Chandler, AZ @ Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino
