Alice Cooper and former The Iron Maidens and Femme Fatale guitarist Nita Strauss has released a video for her instrumental solo single “Our Most Desperate Hour” from her upcoming solo album Controlled Chaos, which will be released on November 6, 2018.
The following message was posted by Strauss on her Facebook page back on September 28, 2018 about her upcoming new album:
“THE STORM IS HERE!!!!!
As of today, my album CONTROLLED CHAOS is officially available for pre order at nitastrauss.com and all major retailers!!!! What you’re hearing right now is the first single Our Most Desperate Hour and it is available to download RIGHT NOW (if you’re a Kickstarter backer, check your email- surprise
Producing and doing the majority of the engineering on this record myself was a challenge for me in so many ways and I learned A LOT about myself in the process but I am beyond overjoyed with how it came out!!!!! And so happy to get to share it with you guys now!!! I’m writing this post with tears in my eyes thinking of the journey of the last few months… you guys… WE DID IT!!!!!! Without each and every one of your support, whether it was via Kickstarter, sharing or commenting on posts, or just by following along on here, this would not have become a reality. So read this again in your best Rocky impersonation… WE DID IT!!!!!!
Believe it or not, that’s not all the news. I am beyond excited to announce my first ever tour as a solo artist, in support of the incredible Angel Vivaldi. The 29- city tour will kick off 11/19 in Massachusetts and end 12/21 in New Jersey!! Full list of dates to come in my next post!!
A final note- As some of you guys remember, I had two reasons for not going with a record label initially. Number one was to keep creative control of my music, and number two was doing what was best for any other bands I work with now or in the future. Many labels I spoke to insisted on owning a piece of everything I did, and that was just not something I was willing to consider.
Sumerian Records came to the table after the album was completely finished- recording, mixing, cover art, the works- and we agreed on an amazing partnership to put this record out to the world. Their reach, distribution and support will help me make this grow more than I ever could have on my own, and most importantly, they believe in my solo music 100% with no contingencies. We have always had a very small team here on the business side of my career, and I am extremely grateful to the two people who made this happen- my attorney extraordinaire Eric German and as always to Josh for their absolutely tireless focus and determination to make the right deal without settling. Thank you also to Ash Avildsen, Amanda Fiore, Mike Jakubow and all at Sumerian Records– you guys know that just about my entire gym playlist is made up of Sumerian artists and I could not be more thrilled to join the ranks as one of them today!!
