On April 21st - aka Record Store Day - Motörhead will be issuing a 7" picture disc of their runaway hit cover version of David Bowie's "Heroes", with the art featuring a new "sketch" take on the classic war-pig. The flip-side features "Heroes (the Wacken Family Choir Mix)" with previously unheard audio of the crowd at 2017's Wacken Festival singing along to the single as it was being officially launched via the festival PA, an emotional moment of celebration and tribute which can now be shared globally.
"It's such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming from it out of us," said guitarist Phil Campbell, whilst drummer Mikkey Dee added, "Lemmy was very, very proud of it, not only because it turned out so well, but because it was fun!"
Motörhead remain one of the true premier giants of rock n' roll, continuing to be celebrated by fans worldwide despite the tragic passing of leader/founding member Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister in December 2015. Their last studio album, Bad Magic, reached the top 20 album charts in 17 countries worldwide, including a #1 spot in Germany. Their latest album, Under Cöver, was a top 20 album in both Germany and the UK.
Killswitch Engage and Revolver have teamed up to premiere the new song "Define Love." Listen to the song here.
"Define Love" is an unreleased track from the "Incarnate" sessions. The limited edition 7" is being released as a Record Store Day exclusive on Saturday, April 16, including in very limited numbers in the U.K.
The 7" includes "Define Love" on Side A, while Side B is silkscreened with "Define Love" artwork created by KsE bassist Mike D. The 7" also includes a Killswitch Engage stencil.
About the song, singer Jesse Leach said:-
"'Define Love' was written as my critique on our attempts as humans to limit love or restrict love. Whether it be political or religious agendas, love seems to be used as a way to manipulate people to think or act a certain way. Love is deeper than simple emotion or desire. It is an unexplainable spirit that defies our attempts to harness and understand it. True love, in my mind, is far greater than our feeble comprehension of it. We need not try to set any limitations on what defines love."
KsE released their seventh album "Incarnate" via Roadrunner Records on March 11. The band commemorated the album release with an intimate, fully sold-out, five-shows-in-six-nights New York City residency. Watch the video recap here.
