As was recently announced, Motorhead will release new album "Aftershock" on October 22nd on CD, vinyl, and digital formats, with pre-order info coming soon.

“Steal it if you must, buy it if you can!” says Lemmy, who’s pride in the album is so immense that guests to his home and dressing room in the last couple of months have been treated to extremely loud airings of the rough mixes, while Phil Campbell adds, “I really think the variation on the album shows that we’ve dug deep and produced some of our best work for a long time.”

“It is,” says Mikkey Dee, “a really, really strong Motorhead album, one that really does define everything this band stands for.”

The following press release was also issued about the coming album:

"Like the juggernaut you prayed would keep on crushing you, like the friend that still royally pisses off your parents and like a loyal standard of crunchy, greasy, punky, bluesy, gutsy screw-you rock’n’roll, Motorhead stride out through their 38th year brandishing more swagger and attitude then your ears could begin to comprehend.

"On October 22, 2013, Motorhead will deliver their 21st studio album, an enormous and prophetic Aftershock. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, it is a true leveler, a crushing confirmation of everything Motorhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motorhead in perhaps their best writing form for years. There’s swagger, there’s punch, there’s speed and there’s dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motorhead is not simply a band, it’s a genre!

"That genre, more than ever, resonates with hearty independence and swashbuckle. Whether it’s 'Heartbreaker' throwing hooks and riffs into your head, the double-kick concussiveness of 'Paralyzed' with Campbell’s fuelled attack, or the thunderous ride-off-the-Rickenbacker Motörcharge of 'Going To Mexico,' Aftershock takes gleeful twists and turns which re-announce the Motörlegend. There’s the smoky biker bar blues in the shape of 'Dust And Glass,' Lemmy’s late-night vocals evoking last-call and melancholy, the pogo-powered punk-spiked stab of 'Queen Of The Damned' and the deliciously steamy, humid mournful 'Lost Woman Blues' which midway through decides to kick over the stool and stomp out the saloon door."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Heartbreaker
2. Coup de Grace
3. Lost Woman Blues
4. End of Time
5. Do You Believe
6. Death Machine
7. Dust and Glass
8. Going to Mexico
9. Silence When You Speak to Me
10. Crying Shame
11. Queen of the Damned
12. Knife
13. Keep Your Powder Dry
14. Paralyzed
