Road Album

Post by Marcelocooper » Thu Oct 21, 2021 12:17 am

Sorry if anyone has mentioned this already.

Nita and Tommy have posted a few instagram videos and stories about the new album. Apparently the Road concept Alice talked about In the Trenches is really being used, as recordings are being made on the bus between cities.

I will be looking forward to this. Making an album when touring has potential to lead to a proper old fashioned band album, instead of everyone recording their tracks in different studios around the world with little input from each other. Hopefully they have good songs to record, too.

What a very "Detroit" thing to do. As much as I love studio polish, I'd love to hear something totally raw from the touring band and Alice. I would pay up for an EP or bonus cuts.

I've been following their posts. Oh How I wish for everything to work!

Does anyone know a big artist who wants to hire Ezrin away from the Cooper Band before he brings other guys to pitch songs for Alice?

I don’t mind Ezrin producing but I agree leave the outside songwriters and studio musicians away from this project. I’ve seen what Ezrin has done for Deep Purple the last few years and I think he’s been a real shot in the arm for them. But he doesn’t bring in outside talent for them. Just seems to bring out the best in them. Hope he can do it with Coop and band or let Tommy handle the production.

I was uncertain whether or not this idea would actually happen, so I'm extremely excited that they're recording now. As a metal guy, I cannot wait to hear what Nita does on this record. Even aside from her, the entire band is great, and I think they'll produce one of Alice's best albums in decades (and I like a lot of his recent work!).

The current band is my favorite lineup of Alice's career so I am excited about this. But what I am hoping for is the band members are truly allowed to shine and not held back. I would love to hear some of the heaviness of Beasto Blanco that Chuck loves, lots of shredding by Nita, and the catchy choruses Ryan brings. Let them all play to their strengths and go a little bit heavier with this album.

I think Tommy will be heavily involved with most of the songs, and will work with the others to shape their ideas into the music we'll get. Just a feeling I have based on him having a lot of credits on the last few AC / HV albums. I think Alice and Bob would trust him to put a lot of the pieces together.

This does seem to be the case for what they posted on instagram. With a lot of help from Nita, she appears to be involved in sound engineering and recording.
