Where to buy the new Motorhead album

Classic Rock magazine has the answer…

Anyone wanting the new Motorhead album will find that it is only available through a special edition Motorhead fan pack released by Classic Rock magazine.
The pack will include the new album and a 132 page magazine with interviews from the archives as well as new ones about the album, ‘The World is Yours’. This is the only way anyone in the UK will be able to buy the album this year.

Coming in at £14.99 it shows a marked increase from the last studio album which I paid £9.99 for on the day of release. Classic Rock did a similar thing this year with the release of the new Slash album which sold some 30,000 copies of the album/magazine. We all know Lemmy and Slash are good friends so has this been done on Slash’s recommendation?

    This is very interesting . . . a strange development - I can’t help thinking more people will download it illegally if they can’t just go out and buy it at HMV or on Amazon etc
    Bad move imho
    Best

    I agree with Rod.

    In the current environment, making it difficult for someone to buy something they could acquire (ok steal) easily is a pretty bad idea.

    Greedy in my book, and they may pay a high price for it.

    Rod/Sam,
    Good opinions there gents, I’m suprised to be honest and the last thing anyone Motorhead fan wants/needs is more archive material-it’s been done to death.
