Motorhead will release their 22nd album, Bad Magic, on August 28. It features a cover of The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" and 12 new original songs, including the newly-released "Thunder & Lightning." It's a hi-speed ripper that basically sounds like it could've been on Overkill or Ace of Spades, and there's no reason to complain about Motorhead doing what they do best 35 years later. Listen below.

The band also have a number of tour dates coming up, including their 2015 'Motorboat' cruise (with Slayer, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies and more), and the Toronto, Denver, and Chicago Riot Fests. All dates are listed below...
