I'll Bite Your Face Off

Album: Welcome 2 My Nightmare (2011)
  • This is the first single from Welcome 2 My Nightmare, a follow up to the rocker's 1975 concept album, Welcome to My Nightmare. Both records were recorded with Cooper's longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, and while the original album was a journey through the nightmares of a 7-year-old Alice named Stephen, its sequel treads the same ground but in a more lighthearted manner with each track representing a different aspect of a bad dream. "This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later," explained Alice, "Bob and I created this character and we know how to write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're writing for Alice. We kept the first Nightmare album very personal to us, on this one we found more humour and we were more open."
  • This song is a tribute to the early work of The Rolling Stones, and had been a live favorite before being recorded for Welcome 2 My Nightmare. "This is my tip-of-the-hat to early Rolling Stones," said Alice. "Like in 1964/65 when their songs were very Chuck Berry orientated. They just feel so good, in the pocket. This song was begging to be in the live show. We've done it in four different continents now and no one had ever heard it. By the second chorus, the whole audience is singing 'I'll Bite Your Face Off.' It's the perfect little 3 minute hit single."
