Alice Cooper: Shock Rock superhero unleashes new single, new album and tour dates
When it comes to combining horror movies and rock ‘n’ roll, all roads lead to Alice Cooper and, almost 50 years after he first stalked onto the shock rock scene, The Coop continues to make musical menace. Last night on his radio program, “Nights With Alice Cooper,” Alice debuted the first single, Paranoiac Personality off the forthcoming album “Paranormal.” “Paranormal” features two songs written and recorded with the original members of the Alice Cooper band and also has guest appearances by ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen and Roger Glover of Deep Purple. The album is out July 28th on earMUSIC and can be pre-ordered via Amazon and iTunes today. There will also be a limited run of blood-red vinyl available at indie retailers across the country.
The guitar-driven “Paranoiac Personality” is a perfect entry point to Alice’s searing rock record. An album that explores the fringes of society, the end of the world, encounters with the devil and more. “Paranormal” was produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple). In addition to the new studio album and the two new recordings from the original Alice Cooper band, fans will receive a bonus of six live tracks recorded at one of Cooper’s 2016 shows in Columbus, OH.
Alice Cooper’s North American tour also kicked off this week. He’ll join up with Deep Purple beginning in August. Highlights include The Greek in Los Angeles on August 13th and Jones Beach on August 26th. Alice Cooper is on a world tour throughout 2017. Full North American tour dates below.

“Paranormal is like 12 great episodes of The Twilight Zone,” laughs Cooper, “each song tells its own twisted little tale.”
