Listen to the New Motörhead Song, “Thunder & Lightning”


Motörhead will put out its 22nd album, Bad Magic, on August 28 through UDR Music/Motörhead Music. It’ll be the band’s first new album since 2013’s Aftershock.

To get the ball rolling, Motörhead have released the album’s scorching lead single, “Thunder & Lightning,” yet another example that the Lemmy-led crew is far from settling down.

“Bristling with thunderous attitude, pioneering spirit and some of the fiercest rhythms and riffs that’ll beat your ears into submission this year, Bad Magic is a massive kick in the teeth for anyone who dared believe it might be otherwise,” reads a statement regarding the album. “Indeed, if those people still remain, they would do well to grab some big fat earplugs, fall to their knees and pray like buggery, because big-rig head crushers like ‘Thunder & Lightning’ and the especially l-o-u-d ‘Teach‘Em How To Bleed’ show that Motörhead are as strong, mean, loud, relentless, uncompromising and goddam heavy as ever.”
