Alt Smokes is thrilled to present custom Ace of Spades hempettes, available now. The 100% premium hemp flower product is available in both 20-count packs and 10-pack cartons, each with custom MOTÖRHEAD graphics.
"We are proud to be a part of the Motörhead crew celebrating the Ace of Spades 40-year anniversary and bringing you a premium smoke," says Alt Smokes CEO Bryan Wyka.
The MOTÖRHEAD x Alt Smokes hempettes are now available for order by the pack or carton here at www.altsmokes.com/motorhead. They will also be available in smoke-shops and other locations nationwide in 2021.
An English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer and songwriter Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, Grammy Award winning pioneers MOTÖRHEAD quickly rose to great prominence in the British punk and heavy metal scenes. MOTÖRHEAD never compromised or changed their unique, raging sound and attitude, which saw the band and their music become a lifestyle for many people from all genres, whether rockers, punks or alternative.
As a power trio, they had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40. The albums Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades and particularly No Sleep ‘till Hammersmith cemented MOTÖRHEAD’s reputation as a top-tier rock band. The band is ranked number 26 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. As of 2018, the Grammy-winners have sold more than 17 million albums worldwide. Road dogs extraordinaire, for the last 20+ years of their career, MOTÖRHEAD was Kilmister, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee. In early 2015 they entered the studio to begin work on Bad Magic, which was released in late August 2015. It quickly became one of the band’s most successful albums, but sadly, Lemmy passed away on December 28, 2015. The band’s last record turned out to be a recording of two typically blistering sold-out shows from the Bad Magic tour, at Munich’s Zenith concert hall only a month prior to his passing.
MOTÖRHEAD released 22 studio albums, 13 live recordings, 12 compilation albums, and four EPs over a career spanning 40 years. The MOTÖRHEAD legacy (and lifestyle) lives strongly on through their music and loyal fans.
