Alice Cooper’s New EP ‘Breadcrumbs’ Out Today

Alice Cooper
Jason Bullinger for Alternative Revolt

Alice Cooper is leaving a trail of Breadcrumbs by releasing a tribute to some of the garage rock heroes from his hometown Detroit. Inspired by the city’s punk scene in the late ’60s and early ’70s, the Detroit-born icon returns to his roots and the raw garage sound his fans love.

The Bob Ezrin-produced EP consists of six brand new recordings, features cult Detroit musicians, including Johnny “Bee” Badanjek from the Detroit Wheels, Grand Funk’s Mark Farner, and MC5’s Wayne Kramer. It was recorded at Rust Belt Studios in Detroit.

The opener “Detroit City 2020” is an updated rewrite of “Detroit City” from 2003’s The Eyes of Alice Cooper and it sets the tone for the EP. Along with Cooper’s own take on Detroit punk classics such as Suzi Quatro’s “Your Mama Won’t Like Me,” Bob Seger’s “East Side Story,” the MC5’s “Sister Anne,” and Shorty Long’s “Devil With a Blue Dress On,” as well as The Dirtbombs’ “Chains of Love,” the EP also features the brand-new Alice Cooper original “Go Man Go.”

Following his extremely successful album Paranormal, the Breadcrumbs EP is the first teaser for the upcoming new studio album in 2020. Breadcrumbs is available digitally and as limited and numbered 10″ Vinyl with only 20,000 copies available worldwide at a special price.
