Forget candy, Motorhead fans will get a very special early Halloween treat this October.

BMG will launch a new series of Motorhead re-issues October 25 with a new 1979 box set.  The deluxe box set will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of the band’s 1979 albums Overkilland Bomber.  Both records were originally in 1979, with Overkillcoming first in March and Bombercoming months later in October.

It will feature 180-gram vinyl re-issues of each record.  It will also feature two previously unreleased live Motorhead recordings captured during Motorhead’s 1979 tours as well as a series of previously unreleased b-sides, rarities and ‘No Class’ 7-inch single.  This is just the tip of the iceberg for the collection.  Its full content listing is noted below.

*Both the original Overkill and Bomber albums half-speed mastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl created from the original master tapes
*Two double-live albums of previously unheard concert material from the ’79 tours
