Motörhead Bringing New Album, New Tour

With a new album in stores this week, it should come as no surprise to any one with a passing interest in hard rock that road-hungry metal veterans Motörhead have lined up a tour in support of it.

The band will unleash the appropriately titled "We Are Motörhead" on Tuesday, bringing with it more doses of straight-up metal on tracks like "See Me Burning," "Stay Out Of Jail," and "Stage Fright." This time out, frontman Lemmy Kilmister and company spice up the mix a bit with a cover of the Sex Pistols' "God Save The Queen" and a ballad (yes, a ballad) that bears the fittingly unromantic title "One More F***ing Time."

To support the effort, Motörhead will hit the road next week in Las Vegas with fellow full-tilt rawkers Nashville Pussy for what is being billed as the "Motor-Pussy Tour." Lemmy himself has called Nashville Pussy, "The best band we've ever toured with," and the legendary metal frontman actually turns up in the cover art of Nashville Pussy's "High As Hell."

In the CD booklet, Lemmy can be spotted in an electric chair enjoying his last wish: a lap dance from Nashville Pussy's Amazonian bassist Corey Parks.
