Alice Cooper Confirms New Album Details, Including Guest Stars

Alice Cooper has revealed details of his new album, Paranormal, scheduled to be released this summer.

The album will be released on July 28th and will come in three different formats: double-disc Digipak, two-LP limited edition box, and digital. According to Cooper’s press release, the 12-track album will be accompanied by a “mini-album” on a bonus disc containing three new songs recorded with the original Alice Cooper band members  Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith, and Michael Bruce. The album will also include “carefully selected live recordings.”

Cooper worked on the album with longtime producer Bob Ezrin. He also confirmed the reports that he recruited some of his famous friends to work on the album including U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover.

Reflecting on the album’s title, Cooper said, “This is not a normal Alice record. Bob and I decided, no theme this time — we’re gonna make a record of things that just get us off, things that we like. And it might go in a lot of directions.”


ZZ Top Adds Dates to Tonnage Tour

ZZ Top has announced they have picked up more dates to extend their 2017 Tonnage Tour into June.

The original run of the tour started this month and was originally going to conclude in mid-March. The band has added dates that begin in May 12th and conclude June 10th.


“The run is Tex-centric, just like ourselves, and the band is looking forward to getting our heads in Mississippi, and points beyond,” said singer and guitarist Billy Gibbons. “After four decades, we believe we’re beginning to get the hang of it, so a mighty good time will be enjoyed by all.”

After they finish up the U.S. portion of the tour in June, ZZ Top is booked for a summer run in Europe.
