While the status of Motörhead frontman Lemmy isn’t clear right now, the band is forging ahead with their plans to release Aftershock, the band’s 21st album on October 22. And if the first two songs we’re hearing from the album are any indication, Aftershock will certainly be another Motörhead album. That’s not a bad thing. The band trying to reinvent themselves creeping up on 40 years as a band would be ridiculous.
“Crying Shame,” which debuted on Rolling Stone earlier, throws some honky tonk piano into the proceedings, which break things up nicely. Meanwhile, “Heartbreaker” isn’t a cover of the Led Zeppelin song (or the Pat Benetar one, for that matter). It’s a full-on rocker, more muscular than “Crying Shame.”
