Last Motorhead recordings to become live album

31st March 2016, Comments 0 comments

Motorhead's last live recordings before the death of the hard-charging metal band's frontman Lemmy are being turned into a live album.

"Clean Your Clock" will bring together material from sold-out shows on November 20 and 21 last year at the Zenith concert hall in Munich, label UDR Records said Thursday.

Lemmy, the British band's singer and guitarist famous for his gravelly voice and hedonistic rock 'n' roll lifestyle, died on December 28 in his adopted home of Los Angeles at age 70.

The album, which will come out on May 27, features classic tracks including "Ace of Spades" and "Overkill."

The Munich concerts were Motorhead's last professional recordings, although the band's final show took place on December 11 in Berlin, the label said.

"Never was the spirit of Motorhead more alive than when they were on tour," the label said in a statement, saying that the band put in "that indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume."
