Lemmy Kilmister Confirms Motorhead’s 2012 Mayhem Festival Run

Mary Ouellette,

When the 2012 Mayhem Festival lineup was announced, it seemed to be lacking one of the largely rumored bands, Motorhead. While Slipknot, Slayer, and Anthrax were on the official roster, Motorhead was not, much to the dismay of metal fans everywhere. However, the festival did hold out the promise that a special guest would be announced later on and it was speculated that it would probably be Motorhead.

In a new interview with 99.9 KISW in Seattle Wash., Lemmy confirmed all the rumors when asked point blank if Motorhead would be participating in the 2012 Mayhem Festival. He responded,“Yeah we are, yeah. With Slayer I think. It should be a good tour.”

So we’re not sure if Motorhead is definitely the special guest in question but the cat is officially out of the bag that Motorhead will be on the tour at some point. Details are still a bit sparse.

The 26-date Mayhem Festival tour run kicks off on June 30 in San Bernardino, Calif. Check out all the dates and locations here.

Check out the rest of the entertaining interview with Lemmy below where he offers up his potential campaign slogan of “Die Now, Save Time” and his advice to up and coming bands as well as a personal tour of his scars.
