MOTÖRHEAD was forced to cancel two European concerts earlier this week after the band's frontman Lemmy Kilmister suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel). The news of Lemmy's latest medical issue followed reports that he was also recently fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.
A new message posted on Lemmy's official Facebook page reads as follows: "We are happy to announce that despite rumors to the contrary, Lemmy is alive, breathing, talking, fucking, drinking, eating, reading and will be back to playing shows shortly.
"As reported, he did undergo a Motor-pit-stop for some medical maintenance this past spring, and the timing of his recent illness was unfortunate in that it came so soon after that.
"Lemmy & Co believe in the 'keep calm and carry on' way of thinking. Fans can anticipate more MOTÖRHEAD live action this summer, as well as the most exciting MOTÖRHEAD in years, 'Aftershock', this fall."
The follow-up to 2010's "The Wörld Is Yours", "Aftershock" was recorded at Maple Sound Studios in Santa Ana, California with longtime producer Cameron Webb and will feature 13 songs, including "Dust And Glass", "Knife", "Going To Mexico", "Lost Woman Blues", "Death Machine" and "Heartbreaker".
