Former Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell has announced his debut solo album ‘Old Lions Still Roar’ featuring guest appearances from Alice Cooper, ex-Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider and Judas Priest’s Rob Halford.
After releasing the critically acclaimed album ‘The Age of Absurdity’ with Phil Campbell & the Bastard Sons in early 2018, the long-term Motörhead axeman is currently putting the finishing touches to his inaugural solo release.
Announcing the record this morning, Phil Campbell said: "I'm really happy to release my first solo album, ‘Old Lions Still Roar’, worldwide. I'm also honoured to have mega talented guests and friends do their thing. Looking forward to everyone taking a listen!"
More details about the record will be announced soon.

After playing a series of European festivals throughout the summer – including Camp Bestival and Stonedeaf Festival - Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons embark on a headline UK tour in late October and early November with support from King Creature.
Phil says of the tour: “We are looking forward heading back out across the UK at the end of the year to play some new places and some of our regular favourites. We’ll be playing a mixture of songs off The Age Of Absurdity, Motörhead classics and maybe even a song or 2 off my upcoming solo album.”
