Motörhead’s Ace of Spades To Be Reissued in Deluxe 40th Anniversary Editions and Box Set

on July 22, 2020, 11:00am

Motörhead’s classic 1980 album Ace of Spades will receive a deluxe treatment for its 40th anniversary. In addition to expanded reissues on both CD and vinyl, a jam-packed collector’s box set is being released.

All of the new editions arrive on October 30th, nearly 40 years after the LP’s original release date of November 8th, 1980. The album featured the classic Motörhead lineup of Lemmy Kilmister, “Fast” Eddie Clarke, and Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, and was highlighted by its iconic title track.

The 2-CD and 3-LP 180-gram vinyl reissues each contain the original album, a previously unreleased recording of a December 23rd, 1981 concert at Whitla Hall in Belfast, and a 20-page book.

The “Deluxe Box Set” collects both the original album and the Belfast concert, plus an additional 1981 concert from Orleans, France; a 40-page book; an EP of previously unreleased instrumentals; a double-album of B-sides; a DVD containing rare TV appearances from 1980-81, a live concert from 1981, and a 5.1 audio mix of the original album; a replica program from their “Ace Up Your Sleeve” tour; a comic book; poker dice; and, for a limited time, a bonus 7-inch reproduction of the Dutch “Ace of Spades” single.

A “Super Deluxe Box Set” comes encased in a bespoke wooden Wild West dynamite box, and adds shot glasses; a poker mat; playing cards; and casino chips to the above contents.

Along with the announcement of the various 40th anniversary editions, a video has been released for the live rendition of “Ace of Spades” from the aforementioned 1981 Belfast concert.


The various 40th anniversary editions of Ace of Spades are available for pre-order via the official Motorhead webstore. The video for the “Ace of Spades” live version, and the complete box set tracklist can be seen below.

The 40th anniversary of the album and the title track was previously celebrated on Motörhead Day (“The 8th of May”), with a new lyric video, social media filters, and limited-edition merch. And in June, it was also announced that a biopic on Lemmy Kilmister is currently in the works.
