Legendary rocker Alice Cooper performed the song “I’ll Bite Your Face Off” on last night’s (Wednesday, November 28) episode of Conan O’Brien‘s nighttime talk show on TBS, “Conan”. You can watch video footage of Alice‘s appearance below.
“I’ll Bite Your Face Off” comes from Alice‘s latest album, last year’s“Welcome 2 My Nightmare”, which sold 18,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart. Cooper‘s previous CD, 2008’s “Along Came A Spider”, opened with just under 10,000 copies to land at No. 53.
Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original multi-platinum “Welcome To My Nightmare” album in 1975, “Welcome 2 My Nightmare” picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.
“This is Alice‘s nightmare 35 years later,” said Cooper of the new“Nightmare” CD. “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 forAlice. We kept the first ‘Nightmare’ album very personal to us, on this one we found more humor and we were more open.”
He continued: “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.”
