Motörhead unveil new song ‘Thunder & Lightning’ – listen

Motorhead have posted a new song, ‘Thunder & Lightning’. Click above to listen.

The track is taken from their forthcoming album ‘Bad Magic’, which is due out on August 28 via UDR Music/Motörhead Music.

The veteran hard rock trio confirmed the LP – their first since 2012’s ‘Aftershock’ – last week having first teased fans back in February with Instagram videos showing them working in the studio with long-time producer Cameron Webb. The caption on one clip read: “Phil Campbell is working on guitars today in the studio for our new album! Here’s a little taste!”

The new record is due to arrive despite frontman Lemmy’s recent bouts of ill health. The singer – real name Ian Fraser Kilmister – has been affected by health issues related to diabetes since 2000, while the band were forced to pull out of their appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival in Brazil in April after he fell ill just hours before they were due to take the stage. Media reports claimed the 69-year-old was suffering from gastric distress and dehydration.
