VIDEO: Alice Cooper – I’ll Bite Your Face Off

The new video from Alice Cooper’s upcoming album, “Welcome 2 My Nightmare," has arrived.

“I’ll Bite Your Face Off” is the album’s first single, released prior to the project’s September 13 street date.

“This is my tip-of-the-hat to early Rolling Stones,” Alice tells NME. “Like in 1964/65, when their songs were very Chuck Berry-orientated. They just feel so good, in the pocket. This song was begging to be in the live show. We've done it in four different continents now and no one had ever heard it. By the second chorus, the whole audience is singing 'I'll Bite Your Face Off.' It's the perfect little three-minute hit single.”

“I don't mind showing people where I get my songs from,”
added Cooper. “I can guarantee there were times when major acts took an Alice Cooper song and said 'we want it to sound like that.’ Because I've heard it and recognized it. I see it as a compliment.”

“Welcome 2” is the sequel to Alice’s 1975 concept album, recorded with longtime Cooper collaborator Bob Ezrin (who also worked on the original).
