ALICE COOPER - Audio Sample From First Welcome 2 My Nightmare Streaming
have posted the cover artwork and audio samples from ALICE COOPER's the
first single to be released from 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare'. The tracks
are 'I'll Bite Your Face Off' and 'Caffine'.

Welcome 2 My Nightmare will be released on September 13th by
Universal Music Enterprises. has heard the album and a
review can be read here.

Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin (PINK FLOYD, KISS),
who produced the original multi-platinum Welcome To My Nightmare album
in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Alice
trapped in his own warped mind.

The original Welcome To My Nightmare release is an all-time rock
classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and pioneering U.S. TV
special, and certified Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose
influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theatre, television,
film and much more.

More than 35 years later, Alice and Ezrin have resurrected the horror and humor for a new generation.

"This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later," explains Alice in a
press release, "Bob and I created this character and we know how to
write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're
writing for Alice. We kept the first Nightmare album very personal to
us, on this one we found more humor and we were more open. This was our
world and we want to present it to the fans. The original album was my
first solo album after all those huge hit records with the original band
and now that nightmare is exposed, this one can be a little bit more
open. The music crosses all sorts of boundaries; we went where the
lyrics took us."

There is an array of collaborators on the new album, including
original Alice Cooper members Denis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal
Smith reunited on 3 tracks; global pop superstar Ke$ha, who
affectionately calls Alice "dad"; and legendary Alice and Lou Reed
guitarist Steve Hunter, who is part of Alice's current touring band and
featured prominently on the first Nightmare album.

Musically, the album ranges far and wide, from trashing disco to
garage punk, pop balladry to a rocking number, very much in the spirit
of the Rolling Stones. And then there's the ballad "Something To
Remember Me By," described by Alice as "the prettiest song we have ever

Glimpses of themes from the original album are intertwined
throughout, each track representing a different aspect of Alice's

From the opener, "I Am Made Of You," through the already established
live favorite and first single "I'll Bite Your Face Off," to the
surprising duet with Ke$ha, "What Baby Wants," this album is a reminder
that albums just aren't made this way anymore.

And musicians do not play together like Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith anymore.

"I wanted a '70s feel for 'When Hell Comes Home,' says Alice, "and I
didn't even have to ask for it, it's just how they play and they did it
live in the studio. When they got done playing the basic track, Bob and
I just looked at each other, that sound is built into their DNA. We
didn't need to go and fix anything. The way they finished was a little
bit ragged, and that's the way we used to finish songs, that's what I
like about it."

Co-writers on various songs include the aforementioned Bob Ezrin,
Ke$ha, Dunaway, Bruce and Smith
, plus BUCKCHERRY's Keith Nelson, Desmond
Child (who famously co-wrote and produced 'Poison' with Alice),
longtime collaborator Dick Wagner, current touring band member Chuck
Garric, and film composer Jeremy Rubolino.

"That's my rebellion," says Alice of the more surprising guests, "I
like people that don't belong and yet what they're doing works
perfectly. I don't care where it comes from, as long as it's right. If
you tell me something doesn't work, I'll work my head off until it does
then shove it down your throat."

"I think a lot of my audience is going to go 'KE$HA!?', but she
probably wrote the most wicked lyrics in the song – we had to rein her
in. I like people to know that just because artists are put in a pigeon
hole, that doesn't mean that's what they are. Give people a little

With Steve Hunter, one of rock's great guitarists, added to the
band's lineup of guitarists Damon Johnson and Tommy Henriksen, bassist
Chuck Garric, and drummer Glen Sobel, Alice has been tearing up venues
worldwide on his 2011 "No More Mr. Nice Guy" tour.

Alice gave fans an up close and highly personal experience in June
with a surprise performance at London's legendary 100 Club, when actor
Johnny Depp joined the band on guitar. Alice showcased the powerful band
that had blown away the Download Festival crowd the previous weekend.

This year, the original Alice Cooper group was inducted into the
Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, and Alice was honored with both the Kerrang!
Icon Award in the UK and the Revolver Golden God Award in the US.
