ALICE COOPER Details His 'Paranormal' Release

Artist: 
ALICE COOPER RELEASES FIRST SINGLE "PARANOIAC PERSONALITYOFF THE FORTHCOMING PARANORMAL OUT JULY 28

Last Thursday evening on his radio program, "Nights With Alice Cooper," ALICE COOPER debuted the first single, "Paranoiac Personality" off the forthcoming album Paranormal.  As previously announced, 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 28 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 13 and Jones Beach on August 26. Alice Cooper is on a world tour throughout 2017. Full North American tour dates below.
