Motörhead to Rock Congress Theater Saturday, February 19th with Clutch & Valiant Thorr!
Motörhead have never just been the best rock’n’roll band in the world. They’ve never just been the loudest. Or the hardest. Or the toughest. Or the bad-ass-est. No… Motörhead are also a lifestyle. Motörhead are a mindset, a belief, a way to live your life, a way to both survive and beat a society that sometimes seems intent on trying to grind you down.
In celebration of their latest album, The World Is Yours, out February 8th and the new documentary, Lemmy, Motörhead hit the road and will thunder into the Congress Theater on Saturday, February 19th with Clutch and Valiant Thorr on board. There are those who feel that Motörhead is the essential influence for all modern metal – the live show is an electrifying must-see.
Motörhead have chosen in what might be some of the most tense times in recent global history, to release a hell-raising, rebel-rousing rock’n’roll statement known as The World Is Yours.Written and performed by Lemmy Kilmister, Philip Campbell and Mikkey Dee in both Los Angeles, CA and Wales, with production once again by Cameron Webb, The World Is Yours serves to remind everyone that you should never stop questioning or critiquing a society that would surely chew you up and spit you if given half a chance. And with 10 soul-scorching testaments to the unbridled power this world-famous trio continually maintain, The World Is Yours delivers some of the finest, most important Motormusic yet.
On instant classics such as ‘Get Back In Line’, Kilmister thunders that ‘The way we are is not the way we used to be my friend’, and ‘We are trapped in luxury, starving on parole, no-one told us who to love, we have sold our souls’ , whilst on ‘Brotherhood Of Man’ Kilmister roars ‘You cannot hide the truth from me I know what’s in your heart, greed and jealousy each equal, all your days now dark’. And with the defiant, uproarious ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Music’ , Kilmister and co remind everyone that ‘rock’n’roll music is the true religion’ and ‘rock’n’roll even gonna set you free, make the lame walk and the blind see’…
With The World Is Yours the band have triumphed over adversity to produce an absolute stormer in this, their 35th year as THE greatest, loudest and just plain goddam coolest band around.
If that isn’t enough, the critically-acclaimed documentary about Motörhead’s iconic founding-frontman, titled LEMMY, which has been tearing up the worldwide film festival circuit from New York to Melbourne to London and beyond, will premiere nationally in January. “We don’t fit into anything!” roars founder and heartbeat Lemmy Kilmister,”the only thing we fit into is ‘Motörhead’ because we are Motörhead music and that’s what we do!”
