Upon A Burning Body have unveiled their cover of Alice Cooper‘s “Feed My Frankenstein” recently. You can check that out below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Southern Hostility which arrives on tomorrow, June 7th via Seek And Strike Records.
Guitarist Ruben Alvarez commented on the cover:
In a world filled with ultra-sensitive, politically correct keyboard worriers, there isn’t a better time for the original shock rocker, Alice Cooper, to come and shake things up. When we saw that he was hitting the road again, it was a no-brainer to pay tribute to the man himself. We were searching for a song that had that nostalgic feel and would be a great sing-along, especially for all the fans who probably remember Alice from ‘Wayne’s World‘.
We saw many parallels to UABB and Cooper in the way that he has so many different types of songs and messages. He’s able to have fun, but lay down the feels with a strong message. Cooper was also the very first concert that [UABB vocalist] Danny Leal ever went to! We are all huge fans and couldn’t have picked a better song to cover than this. It’s hype and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It also has two of the best guitarist of all time!
I think Alice would dig our take ’cause of the heavy element we added while staying true to the classic Cooper sound you definitely don’t want to mess with. Party on!
