Motorhead Announced For Way Out West 2014

Motörhead have been announced they'll be playing Way Out West 2014. The legendary rock band will play Thursday 7th August, the same day as Queens Of The Stone Age play the Swedish festival.

"You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby,
I don't wanna live forever,
And don't forget the joker"

Without making some faux interpretation of Lemmy's perhaps most famous text, we can agree that this kind of full-throttle lyric says something about what we all dream of, but never actually do. Full speed, don't stop. Volume at eleven. Bottoms up. No regrets. And no band has ever practiced what they preach as much as Motörhead.

Do not dare to reduce them to a cliché. It's almost impossible to summarise the importance that Motörhead have to rock and roll. They ARE the origin of everything that we associate with rock; image, attitude and an uncompromising nature. The bands influence over all forms of punk, metal and rock is matched only by the ability to avoid trends, time and genres. The history of music would have looked very different if it wasn't for Motörhead. Ask any rock musician, in any country and the chances are great that they have an intimate relationship with Motörhead.

Motörhead are almost 40 years into their career, against all the odds and unbelievable life events, yet they still deliver classics. Their latest album 'Afterburner' (2013) is a collection of equally catchy songs that will blow your mind on a record that is fully comparable to say, 'Orgasmatron' or 'Bomber'.

One more thing. When Mikky Dee (the son of the city for Gothenburg) literally beats the shit out of the drums, when Phil Cambell's guitar smashes the decibel limits and when Lemmy's ever so deliciously hoarse and ear-piercing voice screams truths, you will have a near-life experience.
