A short video message from legendary rocker Alice Cooper in which he thanks fans for helping him land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart with his new album, “Welcome 2 My Nightmare”, can be seen below.
“Welcome 2 My Nightmare” sold 18,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. Cooper‘s previous CD, 2008’s “Along Came A Spider”, opened with just under 10,000 copies to debut 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.
That original album is an all-time rock classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and pioneering U.S. TV special and cemented Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theater, television, film and much more.
