New Alice Cooper ‘Road’ Album Coming In August
Alice Cooper has just dropped “I’m Alice” the lead single from his upcoming album, Road, set for release on August 25th. The collection will feature a bonus DVD/Blu-ray featuring Alice’s full live show at Hellfest 2022 and includes, “all the classics and rarely played gems.”
The set was produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin, and was written and performed by Alice and his live band — guitarists Ryan Roxie, Tommy Henrikson, and Nita Strauss; bassist Chuck Garric; and drummer Glen Sobel.
Alice Cooper said in the new album’s announcement:
For Road, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs. I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.
Alice Cooper has always believed that producer Bob Ezrin’s work with the original Alice Cooper Band led to the most effective and timeless music of his career: “Bob Ezrin, who was our George Martin, basically. Everything before Love It To Death was, just, y’know, all over the place. And it had its own personality and it was definitely Alice Cooper and everything, but it wasn’t definitively Alice Cooper until you really got to Love It To Death. That was the Alice Cooper sound after that.”
