MOTÖRHEAD has set “Aftershock” as the title of its new album, tentatively due in September. The follow-up to 2010′s “The Wörld Is Yours” was recorded at Maple Sound Studios in Santa Ana, California with longtime producer Cameron Webb and will feature 13 songs, including “Dust And Glass”, “Knife”, “Going To Mexico”, “Lost Woman Blues”, “Death Machine” and “Heartbreaker”.
In other news, it was revealed in the latest issue of U.K.’s Classic Rock magazine that MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister recently had a defibrillator fitted — an operation to put a device in his chest to help his heart beat normally — after experiencing “heart problems.”
MOTÖRHEAD released “The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 2: Anyplace Crazy As Anywhere Else” in Germany on September 21, 2012, three days later in the rest of Europe and October 9, 2012 in North America via UDR/EMI. The follow-up to 2011′s “The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 1: Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else” features the band’s 2011 Wacken Open Air headline appearance as well as highlights from Sonisphere (United Kingdom) and Rock In Rio (Brazil) shows.
MOTÖRHEAD‘s latest album, “The Wörld Is Yours”, sold 7,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 94 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous effort, “Motörizer”, premiered with 6,400 units back in 2008 to debut at No. 82, while 2006′s “Kiss Of Death” registered a first-week tally of 3,500.
