Motörhead will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of ‘Ace of Spades’ with a special deluxe reissue of the album.

Originally released on November 8, 1980, ‘Ace of Spades’ was led by its title track, which went on to become one of the band’s signature songs during their career.

The ‘Ace Of Spades’ album is now set to be reissued on October 30 to honour 40 years since its release.
