Alice Cooper says he, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry have written “a lot of new material” for their blistering new Vampires album, coming out in June.
The Vampires, Johnny, Joe, and Alice, started out as a tribute band, but this summer they are releasing an album featuring all-new, original, hard rock songs.
Alice Cooper announced to AZ Central, he, Johnny and Joe are recording their new Hollywood Vampires album from December 10 until February 26. That’s the space of time between Alice Cooper’s Pudding Concert and Alice’s return to his Paranormal Tour.
“I would imagine in that time that we’ll be going over to L.A. to record with the Vampires, because the Vampires, I think, are gonna go out in June.”
Alice Cooper described the album to AZ Central as a very hard rock album. Considering Johnny Depp and Joe Perry are providing two guitars as a strong backup for shock rocker Alice Cooper, that should be no surprise.
“It’s gonna be a hard-rock album. I know that. A very hard-rock album. Knowing those guys, their pedigree is hard rock. Joe Perry, Johnny and myself, we’re all sort of classic rock guys. So I think the songs will have a modern tinge to them but they’ll be pretty much classic guitar rock.”
