Motorhead share making of latest video from final album Bad Magic

Motorhead have released a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video for “When The Sky Comes Looking For You”, the latest track issued from their final album, “Bad Magic.”

Directed by award-winning photographer Pep Bonet, the clip was filmed over two days in Palma de Mallorca with extras who had applied to be part of the filming after Bonet made an online appeal.

“It is Bonet’s first music video piece,” says the band, “and from its Sam Peckinpah’ like approach to the calm mystery of actor Santi Oliver, the style, frame and intriguingly off-kilter atmosphere all encapsulate the best elements of Bonet’s photography.”

“Bad Magic” scored the band’s highest US chart position in Motorhead’s career, debuting at No. 22 on the Billboard 200 with opening week sales of 11,000 copies upon its release in August.

Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister passed away at his Los Angeles home on December 28, just four days after his 70th birthday.

The legendary rocker’s death certificate listed prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia and congestive heart failure as the official causes of death.
