ALICE COOPER is inarguably one of the biggest names in the history of rock music. To honor his 75th birthday on February 4, 2023, POWERWOLF has released a cover version of his larger-than-life song “Poison”. The 1989 hit single from the legendary album Trash is an absolute evergreen and known by every rock and metal fan worldwide. POWERWOLF pays tribute by adding their trademark sound to the song, without sacrificing the iconic structure of the original.

POWERWOLF on the cover:
“Over the years we have released several cover songs to pay tribute to artists / bands that we personally hold in high regard. With “Poison”, ALICE COOPER has created a timeless classic and we could not miss the opportunity to celebrate his 75th birthday (on February 4) with our own version.“

This new cover track arrives just a few weeks before POWERWOLF headlines stages in North America for the very first time – performing in cities such as New York City, Montreal, Los Angeles and more. Don’t miss your chance to join the wolfpack before it’s too late – shows are already selling out! See below for all upcoming tour dates. 

POWERWOLF are undoubtedly one of the most celebrated and successful heavy metal bands of the last decade. Multiple #1 album chart entries, gold and platinum records, huge sold out arena shows, as well as headline slots at the biggest festivals have paved their way.
