Hard rock legends Motorhead have officially entered the studio to start recording their 21st album, a follow-up to 2010's "The World Is Yours".

With Cameron Webb once again at the helm of production, the release will feature a total of 11 new tracks. Some of the song titles include "Outsider" and "Silence When You Speak to Me".

"We've got eleven songs so far. I'm just writing words to them at the moment, and putting bass and vocals on the tracks. So we'll see - it will take a little while. It's going all right though. I did two tracks yesterday," frontman Lemmy Kilmister tells Brave Words.

As for the release date, the album should be expected during the current year, with Lemmy saying that they've "got to get it out by the end of the summer." You can check out a part of the studio atmosphere in the photo below.

Latest Motorhead record, "The World Is Yours", was released in December 2010 via Future PLC/Motörhead Music, debuting at No. 94 on The Billboard 200 chart with 7,000 copies sold within the first week.

So are you glad Lemmy and the guys are back in the studio again or what? With over two years since the last album, the timing seems just right. Post your thoughts in the comments section below.

    "As for the release date, the album should be expected during the current year" This adds to the list of new albums this year from Black Sabbath, Slayer, Megadeth, Pearl Jam, Deep Purple, Alice in Chains...What a year already. This will be great.
    No kidding, this is going to hopefully be an amazing year for rock and metal...last year, not so much. Hope.Is.Renewed. Also...We are Motorhead and we play Rock and Roll!!
    Oh, almost forgot about the mysterious QOTSA record.
    Slash new album last year? Foo Fighters? Van Halen? Rush? whats wrong with that?
    And, lets not forget the best record of 2012. Psychedelic Pill by Neil Young & Crazy Horse!
    Wasting Light was 2011, actually. It seems like 2012 though haha. As for me, I thought 2012 was a pretty good year. 2012 also had Soundgarden returning with a new album.
    Last year was pretty phenomenal for metal actually. We had Meshuggah's Koloss, Storm Corrosion's Storm Corrosion, Tenacious D's Rize of the Fenix, Gojira's L'Enfant Sauvage, Periphery's Periphery II, The Faceless's Autotheism, Sylosis's Monolith, Between the Buried and Me's The Parallax II, Katatonia's Dead End Kings. That's a lot of masterpieces, pretty awesome for one year.

    Are you serious? Nuclear Blast alone released about $200 of excellent albums last year.
    Not to mention Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Death Punch...bring on the down votes...
    Yeah, it's unfortunate there are people out there with bad taste in music, cus this shit is amazing. The last 2 Five Finger Death Punch albums were absolutely killer. Avenged Sevenfold is gonna be great too.
    5FDP is awful. They've stolen every bit of their image and sound from bands before them.
    I'm sure. I don't think the image is what makes 5FDP 5FDP. I think it might (correct me if I'm wrong) be about the music. Nobody can sing/scream like Ivan Moody and no one has the style of Zoltan Bathory. You want solos? That's where Jason Hook comes in. You want double bass up the butt? Jeremy Spencer is amazing.
    Bite me if the album doesn't start with: |--5h7-7-7-7-7-7--| But yeah, pretty f'n cool.
    Wow, this is gearing up to be an awesome year for new music and this jumps to #1 for me
    Tremonti's "All I Was" last year?! Great solo debut! But this year, Alter Bridge can't be forgotten and CLUTCH is coming out with "Earth Rocker" this year too!
    I'm a Motorhead fan but am I the only one here who isn't excited? I mean, the last few albums have been so tame and predictable. I think I'll just listen up through Orgasmatron like usual. I did like Inferno but I mean seriously guys, The World is Yours was not a good album.
    good year for Rock but will it really make an impact? Only time will tell, let's hope for the best.
    I think were gonna get another 12 tracks of ace of spades and a couple gruff 'yeahs'
    If you think Adam`s story is surprising..., a month-back my brother's best friend basically easily made $5026 sitting there a ninteen hour week from their apartment and the're neighbor's step-aunt`s neighbour did this for 6 months and brought home more than $5026 part-time from there labtop. follow the guide on this site..
