“Welcome to the Show,” showcasing Alice Cooper’s signature blend of hard rock, theatrical storytelling, and haunting melodies is the third single released in prior to the August 25 launch of his “Road” album. One of the most influential and iconic figures in music, Cooper’s latest offering taps into the essence of his classic hits while offering a fresh and invigorating sound, bursting with energy from the first note.

Produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, “Road” is written, composed and recorded with his 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.”
“Road” will be released on August 25 via earMUSIC in a wide variety of formats and limited vinyl colours. Complementing the album’s theme, the bonus DVD/Blu-ray comes with Alice Cooper’s full live show at Hellfest 2022 and includes all the classics and rarely played gems.
