MOTÖRHEAD To Release Double 7" Single 'Overkill / Bomber'

MOTÖRHEAD To Release Double 7" Single 'Overkill / Bomber'

MOTÖRHEAD has announced the release of "Overkill / Bomber" on double picture-disc seven-inch vinyl. It will be made available via BMG for Record Store Day (Saturday, April 13), featuring a new 2019 remaster of the original "Overkill" single edit.

A 40th-anniversary celebration of the loudest, dirtiest, bastard rock 'n' roll of 1979 — the year MOTÖRHEAD released the seminal "Overkill" and "Bomber" albums — the featured single edit was previously only available as the A side of the original 1979 seven-inch single "Overkill". It will be released digitally for the first time ever on March 8, to coincide with its original release date.

This lavish double picture disc is housed in a gatefold sleeve, which features iconic photos of the band, shot by Paul Slattery on February 8, 1979 in front of a huge MOTÖRHEAD Snaggletooth mural on the Harrow Road in Paddington, London.

To get a taste of Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, "Fast" Eddie Clarke and Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor in full flight in 1979, you can watch classic archive footage of the band performing both singles on "Top Of The Pops" from that year.

"Overkill" track listing:

Side A: Overkill
Side B: Too Late Too Late

"Bomber" track listing:

Side A: Bomber
Side B: Over The Top
