Motörhead dissolved in 2015 following the death of Lemmy Kilmister, however the band will be releasing a live album from a major 2012 concert in Germany called Louder Than Noise…Live in Berlin, which will be out on April 23. This album was recorded on December 5, 2012, at the Berlin Velodrom and will be released on CD with bonus DVD, double vinyl and streaming platforms.
While Kilmister preferred to stay away from the heavy metal label, Motörhead was considered one of the pre-eminent UK acts of the genre, influencing the development of speed and thrash metal, while also gaining respect in punk scenes. During their run the band released a total of 22 albums, hardly taking any breaks in between records. They have also been going through their back catalog as of late, releasing a 40th anniversary reissue of their classic Ace of Spades last October, which was filled with rarities and B-Sides.
Kilmister will be the subject of an upcoming biopic called Lemmy, which is set to explore his early life prior to the formation of Motörhead. This film is still in its early stages, however several people close to Kilmister such as Todd Singerman his manager, are attached to the project.
“We’ve been carefully developing this biopic since 2013, making sure to stay true to Lemmy, Motörhead band members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and all the other folks that played important roles in Lemmy’s life,” screenwriter and director Greg Olliver said in a statement. “This will be a film they’ll be proud of.”
