Rock icons Motorhead are officially streaming their new record "Aftershock" in full prior to October 21 release through UDR Gmbh Records.
Featuring 14 new tunes, the album clocks in at just over 45 minutes of the band's staple gritty groove. Check out the stream below, courtesy of Yahoo Music.
In a recent Classic Rock Magazine interview, frontman Lemmy Kilmister discussed his recent health decline, saying that he' prepared for death, but doesn't intend on slowing down or showing regret.
"I don't mind you asking about my health," he kicked off. "I've been poorly. There's no point lying about it or trying to deny it. I've never done that."
Lemmy continued, "It was the same when people were telling me to stop smoking. 'You've got to stop smoking, Lem,' they kept saying. F--k you. I don't like people telling me what to do, even if they might be right."
The singer/bassist also noted that he stopped drinking Jack and Coke due to his diabetes, saying that he doesn't drink that much anymore. He takes two daily pills for diabetes that have affected his leg circulation, stiffening them and causing him back ache if standing too long.
"But I can still stand at that mic every night and play my songs," he stressed (via Blabbermouth). "I wouldn't know about the defibrillator if it wasn't for that f--king lump in my chest. I'm getting better. By the time this article is out, and the tour comes around, I'll be all right. I'll be ready."
Lemmy also looked back on his life, saying that he quite happy with the way things turned out. "I don't do regrets," he said. "Regrets are pointless. It's too late for regrets. You've already done it, haven't you? You've lived your life. No point wishing you could change it."
Finally, Kilmister was asked on whether the latest health scare made him more conscious of his mortality. "Death is an inevitability, isn't it?" he replied. "You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good."
