Devil To Pay Releases "Your Inner Lemmy"

Devil To Pay today releases new song "Your Inner Lemmy" in tribute to the Motörhead legend who passed away last month. The track is available for free download at Bandcamp here, and Ripple Music also comments:

"On 28th December 2015, the music world lost a true legend with the passing of Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister, the long time leader of seminal heavy metal band, Motörhead. Known for his fierce independence and true originality, his spirit has influenced several generations of musicians and music lovers.

"Devil To Pay is one such band that owes a tremendous amount to Lemmy's enduring legacy. Originally inspired by the great man, the Indianapolis quartet have chosen to honour his memory with the free download of new song, ‘Your Inner Lemmy’, taken their forthcoming album A Bend Through Time and Space, due for release later this summer on Ripple Music."

Steve Janiak, singer and guitarist of Devil To Pay, explains, "We initially came up with the riffs in 2013 and they obviously sounded very Motörhead-ish. I named the track 'Your Inner Lemmy' because it felt like we were channelling the rock god. Months later we fleshed out the arrangement and wrote the lyrics; it’s a textbook lesson on everything Lemmy was about to us personally. We initially didn't intend to put it on the record, but the more we played it, the more it spoke to us and after we recorded it, we really hoped that somehow he would end up hearing the song. His unfortunate passing shocked and saddened us all."
