Motorhead tease album name

Motorhead appear to have begun teasing the title of their 22nd album, due later this year.

In a series of Facebook posts they’ve shown the phrase “XXXX” in a black square, followed up with the clues “It’s a form of alchemy…” and “Now is it good, or is it… ugly?” followed by “There’s only one type of magic you sons of bitches!”

The band completed studio sessions in the spring. They play Glastonbury next month after a headline slot at this year’s Eden Sessions in Truro at the end of June, and launch their second Motorboat cruise in September.

Mainman Lemmy recently told of his pride at helping bring a fan out of a coma, saying: “That is worth my whole career.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
