Hard rock fans have been talking about it for years, but it's finally becoming a reality. Next month Alice Cooper will unleash 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare,' the long-awaited sequel to his 1975 landmark album, 'Welcome to My Nightmare.' Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin [who produced the original multi-platinum record], the new collection picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind. The original release is an all-time rock classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and pioneering U.S. TV special, and certified Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theatre, television, film and much more.



Noisecreep is honored that the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee chose us to premiere the video for 'I'll Bite Your Face Off,' the first single from 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare.' Check out the video under the cut.

"This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later," explains Alice, "Bob and I created this character and we know how to write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're writing for Alice. We kept the first Nightmare album very personal to us, on this one we found more humor and we were more open. This was our world and we want to present it to the fans. The original album was my first solo album after all those huge hit records with the original band and now that nightmare is exposed, this one can be a little bit more open. The music crosses all sorts of boundaries; we went where the lyrics took us."

There is an array of collaborators on the new album, including original Alice Cooper members Denis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith reunited on 3 tracks; global pop superstar Ke$ha, who affectionately calls Alice "dad"; and legendary Alice and Lou Reed guitarist Steve Hunter, who is part of Alice's current touring band and featured prominently on the first Nightmare album.

"I think a lot of my audience is going to go 'KE$HA!?', but she probably wrote the most wicked lyrics in the song – we had to rein her in. I like people to know that just because artists are put in a pigeon hole, that doesn't mean that's what they are. Give people a little room."
