Motorhead will mark their 40th anniversary in 2015 with a new album.

The band are scheduled to being work on their 22nd album in January in Los Angeles with producer Cameron Webb.

In support of the new record, Motorhead will headline tours at summer festivals in Europe beginning in late May through August, and then a U.S. tour from late August through September, ending with their second annual Motörboat Cruise. More dates will follow in Europe in late November through December for their traditional winter headline run.

The song goes up against tunes by Mastodon (“High Road”), Slipknot (“The Negative One”) and tracks by Anthrax (“Neon Knights”) and Tenacious D (“The Last In Line”) from the Ronnie James Dio tribute album, “This Is Your Life.”

The 57th annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 8.
