November 27th 2021. 50 Years Later. To the day. Pale Wizard Records pays tribute to Alice Cooper’s classic Killer record, the first in an exciting new series of albums entitled 50 years later.
Alice Cooper’s fourth album, Killer, was released on November 27th 1971 and has gone on to become one of the most loved albums in his whole discography. As 50 Years Later, Pale Wizard Records brings you an exciting line up featuring some of the most renowned bands in the underground scene today paying homage to Killer in their own contemporary styles.
Not just any tribute record, 50 Years Later artists are handpicked by the staff at Pale Wizard Records to get the upmost out of each classic track. The eight original songs are brought to life here by some of the absolute best the modern hard rock, stoner and psych underground has to offer.
The lead single in ‘71 was “Under My Wheels” which is brought to life in dramatic style by Green Lung. Other highlights include The Grand Mal tackling “Be My Lover”, Sergeant Thunderhoof’s daring take on “Halo of Flies” and Pale Wizard favourites Mos Generator with “Dead Babies”. But that is not all… the album also features 1968, Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Night, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell and Ritual King.
Killer: 50 Years Later is a potent mixture of the best of today’s bands and one stone cold classic album from years gone.
Whilst the Kickstarter campaign has recently hit its funding goal, there is still time to back the album and be one of the first to get your hands on this ode to one of Alice Cooper’s most loved albums.
