To commemorate MOTÖRHEAD's 30th anniversary show, which is scheduled to take place June 16 at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, U.K., Sanctuary have consulted with Lemmy to release the legendary 1979 "Bomber" album in all its glory... plus a few extra tracks!
The two-CD "Bomber: Deluxe Edition" will be released on June 16 on Sanctuary Records.
Standing as a landmark within the speed-metal pantheon, the album is held in high esteem by MOTÖRHEAD fans and reached number 12 in the charts on its release, while the title track also landed them a Top 40 hit.
MOTÖRHEAD's accompanying live shows replicated the iconic front cover with the lighting rig constructed in the shape of a WWII Heinkel III bomber which "flew" above the heads of the fans in venues up and down the country.
To celebrate their 30th anniversary, the bomber awaits clearance to take flight once more as MOTÖRHEAD prepare to take to the stage for a one-off 30th anniversary show at Hammersmith Apollo.
This remastered edition of the album includes a second disc of live versions and rare tracks, encapsulating for the first time MOTÖRHEAD's recordings from this period.
