ALICE COOPER SIGNS WITH STEAMHAMMER/SPV FOR UPCOMING CD:
March 7, 2008
Recording already underway
New album scheduled for fall 2008 release
Steamhammer/SPV are proud to announce another spectacular new signing in rock icon Alice Cooper. The label from Hanover, Germany, has agreed on a worldwide contract with the legendary American star. Autumn 2008 will see the arrival of the eagerly awaited new studio album, which Cooper began recording in February. The working title of the upcoming release is Along Came A Spider. The album is being co-produced by Greg Hampton and Danny Saber in Los Angeles.
Alice Cooper ranks among the top echelon of great rock stars who first achieved success in the Seventies and who are still actively touring and recording. His spectacular live shows, skillfully staged using visual effects, elaborate outfits, his trademark make-up and props including guillotines, gallows, electric chairs, snakes, and plenty of blood, are legendary, and he has recorded a myriad of celebrated worldwide classic hits including, among others, ‘I’m 18,’ ‘School’s Out,’ ‘Elected,’ ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy,’ ‘Billion Dollar Babies,’ ‘Only Women Bleed,’ ‘I Never Cry,’ ‘Poison,’ ‘Bed Of Nails,’ ‘Hey Stoopid,’ and ‘Feed My Frankenstein.’ He has long enjoyed a reputation as a musical enfant terrible, an artist who has been described as “a chaotic reflex of the electronic age” by the media and referred to himself as the “end product of an affluent society.”
Alice’s “Nights With Alice Cooper” syndicated classic rock radio show continues to air Monday through Friday on 90 stations throughout North America plus outlets in Australia, Ireland, the UK, and other countries. And the paperback edition of his recent “Golf Monster” book hits the stores in May 2008.
Cooper will interrupt the current studio production for March shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan, and plans extensive touring later in 2008 covering Europe, Canada, and the USA. His band features longtime drummer Eric Singer, guitarists Keri Kelli and Jason Hook, and bassist Chuck Garric.
