MOTÖRHEAD “Under Cöver” – Cover Songs Album Releases On September 1st!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Motörhead facebook timeline:

ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old-fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

Under Cöver will be released on September 1st, 2017.

Motörhead Under Cöver – Track Listing:

  1. Breaking the Law (Judas Priest) 2008
  2. God Save the Queen (The Sex Pistols) 2000
  3. Heroes (David Bowie) 2015
  4. Starstruck (Rainbow) 2014
  5. Cat Scratch Fever (Ted Nugent) 1992
  6. Jumpin’ Jack Flash (The Rolling Stones) 2001
  7. Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones) 2015
  8. Hellraiser (Ozzy Osbourne) 1992
  9. Rockaway Beach (Ramones) 2002
  10. Shoot ‘Em Down (Twisted Sister) 2001

From AFM Records:

After BONFIRE‘s latest studio records “Glörious” (2015) and “Byte The Bullet” (2017) both made it to the Top 50 of the German album chart and more than 160 live shows played in the last two years, AFM Records and BONFIRE decided to strike a new path together!

During the more than 30 year-long history of the band, there were of course several different label partners releasing BONFIRE’s 16 studio records and some were not available at times. So in Autumn of 2017, big parts of BONFIRE’s back catalogue will be made available again before the new album will be released in Spring 2018.
Besides being in the studio to record their next record, BONFIRE will be on tour for the rest of the year!
