Rock and roll royalty Motörhead have made public plans to begin work on album number 21. According to Blabbermouth, the seminal metal act will enter the studio in January 2013 with favoured producer Cameron Webb.
Motörhead’s frontman and only steadfast member Lemmy told Billboard.com that the band will get together a few weeks before it’s time to record to prepare material and ready themselves for a return to the studio.
“We’re gonna start in the new year, go into the studio in January,” Lemmy told Billboard.com, “We’ll go into the rehearsal room about a month before the album and just bang stuff out,”
Blabbermouth also notes that Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee told Artisan News that the three-piece have plenty of new tracks to work from, and plan to continue creating songs until it’s time to record.
“We have a lot of songs done already. It’s not finished. We’re gonna keep writing and we’ll record it next year, and it will come out next year,” Dee told Artisan News, according to Blabbermouth.
This marks the 35th anniversary of Motörhead’s self-titled debut album. However, Lemmy told Billbaord.com that the band have no plans to commemorate it and will wait until 2015 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s beginning.
“We’ll think of something; we always do — probably involving naked women or something. But we’ve been lucky; we’ve been around so long people realize they can’t get us to go away, so they’ve just decided to join us. You might not like what we do, but we do what we do very well. We’re not killing ourselves. We don’t get into the studio and say, ‘Let’s write a hit single!’ We’ve never been one of those bands. We really don’t care if everybody likes it; if people like it, to us it’s a bonus,” Lemmy told Billboard.com
