Alice Cooper will releases new single “White Line Frankenstein” from his upcoming album “Road,” coming out August 25 on earMUSIC. Produced by Bob Ezrin, the album hit worldwide top positions on Amazon within 24 hours of the announcement.
Additionally, Alice Cooper had announced the extension of his 2023 North America tour, adding shows through the month of October. The shows October 3-23 will be “An Evening With,” and he closes out the month October 25, 26 & 28 with three co-headlining “Halloween Hootnanny” shows with Rob Zombie. This follows his six shows with Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard, along with six of his own “Evening With” shows August 5-22, following by a monthlong co-headline “Freaks on Parade” tour with Rob Zombie August 24-September 24.
Alice Cooper’s new single “White Line Frankenstein” is built on a rocking riff that melts into a memorable chorus, “They call me ‘White Line Frankenstein,’” leading into a trademark Tom Morello guitar solo, hot enough to burn rubber.
“White Line Frankenstein is a monster that we created. It’s a truck driver who’s been out there a long time. He’s the king of the road. He doesn’t live in a house. He lives in that truck,” Alice says. “In the song, this surreal tough guy is driving on white lines for his whole life. So, ‘White Line Frankenstein’ would be his CB handle. It’s monstrous and definitely a stage song.”
Produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, “Road” is written, composed and recorded with Alice’s trusted, longtime bandmates – Ryan Roxie [guitar], Chuck Garric [bass], Tommy Henrikson [guitar], Glen Sobel [drums], and Nita Strauss [guitar]. It channels the spirit of old school Alice with instantly recognizable grit and plenty of gusto. It’s everything you’d hope for from him and more.
“For Road, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs,” says Alice. “I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.”
