Orianthi returns to the UK with Alice Cooper

The platinum-selling solo artist and iconic guitarist Orianthi will continue as a key member of Alice Cooper’s band for what is expected to be Cooper’s sole UK appearance of 2013 – a headlining performance at Cropredy Festival in Oxfordshire. For those who are unaware, Cropredy is an annual event launched by UK folk legends Fairport Convention back in 1980; this year it runs from August 8th – 10th, with Alice topping the bill on the 8th – Of course this is bad news for any Cooper fans who are heading to Bloodstock instead that weekend.

Having been a part of Alice’s live set-up since August 2011 and completing two world tours in this role, Orianthi is used to trading musical blows with this true master of horror!

Meanwhile, Orianthi is gearing up for the release of her new highly-anticipated album, Heaven In This Hell; produced by Dave Stewart, the record will be released on Spinefarm Records/Robo Records, and is scheduled to be released on March 11th 2013.

Heaven In This Hell is Orinathi’s third solo outing following Violet Journey (2007) and Believe (2010) and it certainly delivers a mega-dose of rock, weaving in elements of modern country and swampy blues.

“I am so proud of this album because it really showcases my style of riff heavy rock and energetic blues,” Orianthi remarks. “The success of ‘Believe’ helped to give me credibility and afforded me the freedom to create the kind of album I have been wanting to make, with musicians I respect, playing together live in a studio, creatively exchanging ideas… the way I want all my records to be made. My friend, collaborator and producer, Dave Stewart and I just jammed and hashed out a variety of songs and sounds until we found the grooves that inspired us.”

The iTunes version of the album comes complete with two bonus tracks.
