Way Out West 2014Motorhead's importance for everything that is rock'n roll is almost impossible to summarize, they are the origin of almost all the attributes we associate with rock-image, attitude and uncompromising. The band's influence over all forms of punk, metal and rock are matched only by the ability to fend off trends, time and genres - Ask any rock musician anywhere in any country and the chances are great that they have an intimate relationship with Motörhead.

Motörhead will soon be celebrating their 40th anniversary, against all odds and lifestyle-related situations, they still remain! Latest album "Afterburner" (2013) is a collection of equally wacky catchy songs like blowing your brains out, a flat fully comparable with Orgasmatron or Bombs.

Splendour In The Grass has received news that Alex Trimble of Two Door Cinema Club is in hospital in the UK. As a result the band is no longer able to make the trip to Australia for their exclusive appearance at Splendour 2014. The band sent us this message to share with Splendour ticket holders…

             It is with a heavy heart that we are going to need to cancel our upcoming trip to Australia for Splendour in the Grass. Alex collapsed at Seattle airport on the way to London and has been hospitalised with a chronic stomach complaint. We are devastated to have to cancel this show that we were so looking forward to. We can only apologise and hope for your understanding at this time. Love TDCC x
