Tour de Force

God Damn! Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Hatebreed, Suicidal Tendencies and More Scheduled For Motörhead’s Motörboat Cruise!


It’s kind of bizarre how the metal cruise phenomenon has taken off, with the likes of 70,000 Tons of Metal, Full Metal Cruise, and Barge To Hell giving fans a chance to see underground metal while wearing a bathing suit. But the lineups of these events, though awesome, are usually full of metal’s underground. Bands like Carcass and Korpiklaani are as big as you’re going to get.

However, Motörhead have announced the roster for their second annual Motörboat Cruise, and damn if it isn’t pretty impressive. The bands announced so far are:

Suicidal Tendencies
Phil Cambell’s All Starr Band
Motor Sister
Fireball Ministry

To be fair, only a handful of these bands are new or promising, which guarantees that this is a trip for the older metal crowd (which also guarantees some hairy fucking backs deckside). That said, a headlining bill of Slayer and Motörhead is no fucking joke, and their backup list of thrash royalty will make this one hell of a boat ride. With this line-up, I’d go.

The Motörboat Cruise sails from Miami on September 28th and stops in Nassau and the Bahamas. You can get your state room here starting Wednesday, March 25th at 2:00pm.
