Motörhead made a recent post on their Instagram page to announce that they will release new ‘Löst Tapes’ to celebrate their late frontman Lemmy Kilmister‘s birthday.
Lemmy Kilmister was the founder, lead singer, bassist, and main songwriter of Motörhead. He was known for his trademark mutton chops, military-influenced apparel, his instantly recognizable and unique singing voice. Along with Motörhead, Kilmister continued making music as a solo musician until his death on December 28, 2015.
An iconic frontman and a foundational figure in the rock music genre, Lemmy Kilmister began working with Motörhead after he founded the band in 1975. Around the years 1980 and 1981, the band achieved huge success with their ‘Ace Of Spades,’ and the chart-topper album ‘No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith.’
Back on March 3, 1998, Motörhead released their fourteenth studio album ‘Snake Bite Love.’ To promote the album, they began their ‘Snake Bite Love Tour’ and joined Judas Priest at the Los Angeles Universal Amphitheatre on April 3. Later on, they released the tracks from this performance on their ‘Everything Louder Than Everyone Else.’
Recently, Motörhead announced the release of their ‘The Löst Tapes Vol. 2’ in an Instagram post. They stated that the performances featured in the album were recorded at the live show at the University of East Anglia in Norwich in 1998. Moreover, the band revealed they are releasing the record to celebrate Lemmy Kilmister’s birthday.
Motörhead’s Instagram post read:
“To celebrate Lemmy’s birthday, we’re very pleased to share with you the next in the ‘The Löst Tapes’ series. This previously unreleased concert from Norwich UEA was recorded on the Snake Bite Love Tour in 1998, and they’re in the venomous form! Crank it up hospital loud and raise a toast!”
