VIDEO: Alice Cooper debuts new, unreleased song

New Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Alice Cooper is out on the road with his "No More Mr. Nice Guy" summer tour, which launched Thursday (May 12) and runs through August.

Alice has a bunch of Canadian dates lined up this week, before the gang heads off to South America May 25-June 3, and England & Europe June 7-July 16; they return to North America again for the month of August.

Alice is bringing back to his stage show guitarist Steve Hunter, who famously toured and recorded with him for several years. Tommy Henriksen will be replacing Keri Kelli on guitar, and Damon Johnson will be continuing with the band, making for a three guitar attack.

Glen Sobel will be joining the band on drums, replacing Jimmy DeGrasso, while bassist Chuck Garric will continue to anchor the rhythm section.

“Steve's always been one of my favorite guitarists since the first time I ever heard him play,” says Alice, “and I've been working with Tommy a lot on the new album. Oh, and yes, a new snake might make the band never know. We will miss Jimmy and Kerri, but I know we will be sharing a stage again in the future."

Of course, the new show includes all the Cooper classics; in addition, Alice premiered a brand new, unreleased song at last Thursday’s tour launch in Indiana – “I’ll Bite Your Face Off” – a rocker that features the ‘classic’ Alice Cooper sound.
