Additionally, Cooper had announced the extension of his 2023 North America tour, adding shows through the month of October. The shows, which will run from 3rd through 23rd October will be “An Evening With”, and he closes out the month on 25th, 26th & 28th October with three co-headlining Halloween Hootnanny shows alongside Rob Zombie. This follows his six shows with Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard, along with six of his own Evening With shows running from 5th to 22nd August, following by a monthlong co-headline Freaks On Parade tour with Rob Zombie from 24th August to 24th September.

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.

Check out the video for White Line Frankenstein below:

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,” Cooper 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.”

Alice Cooper recently wound-up a tour with Hollywood Vampires, alongside Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Hollywood star and musician Johnny Depp as well as his touring bandmates Tommy Henrikson and Glen Sobel. Rockshot Magazine’s Bernadette O’Malley and Kalpesh Patel went down to check out the show when the troupe stopped by London’s O2 Arena earlier this month.
