Nita Strauss is set to rejoin Alice Cooper's band for his upcoming US tour dates. After spending 2022 playing in Demi Lovato's live band after an eight-year stint with Alice, a statement issued by his management confirms that she is returning to the fold for his packed schedule.

Those tour dates will include the 'Too Close For Comfort' headline tour, a string of dates with Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard and a co-headline tour with Rob Zombie titled 'Freaks On Parade'.

Alice had this to say in the statement: “She back! Nita asked for a leave of absence to work with someone else, something I always encourage my band members to do. I like them to challenge themselves and try new things. I’m thankful to my old friend Kane Roberts for stepping up and filling in for her, but she’ll be back with us for the new tour that starts up in late April. It’s going to be great to have her back.”

And Nita added this: “From the studio to the stage, it’s always an immense honour to make music with Alice Cooper!! I’m very excited to be rejoining the band on the road for the 2023 dates, and so I’ll see you on the road in April. Let the nightmare return!”

Jack has yet to hear a breakdown that he hasn't fallen head over heels for. First putting pen to paper for Louder in 2023, he loves nothing more than diving straight into the feels with every band he gets to speak to. On top of bylines in Prog, Rock Sound and Revolver, you’ll also often find him losing his voice at a Lincoln City match or searching for London’s best vegan kebab.
