April 21, known globally in recent years as Record Store Day, will this year feature some very awesome collector’s editions of some of the finest heavy music acts ever.
German label Silver Lining Music will release four very special editions on RSD.
The legendary MOTÖRHEAD will be issuing a 7” picture disc of their runaway hit cover version of David Bowie’s “Heroes”, with the art featuring a new “sketch” take on the classic war-pig.
