Alice Cooper has told Rolling Stone that he will use the downtime from having his North American tour postponed to work on new music.

“While our management is working to reschedule the postponed shows, I’m going to finish work on my next album, which is nearly done,” he said. “At least now I won’t be squeezing in vocal recording sessions on days off, between shows. I don’t like a lot of time off, as anyone who sees my schedule already knows, but a little extra time at home can be re-energizing.”

Cooper‘s latest release — the six-track “Breadcrumbs” EP, described as a tribute to the garage-rock heroes of his hometown of Detroit — was released in September via earMUSIC.

Evanescence and Within Temptation have postponed their upcoming tour of the UK and Europe, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The “Worlds Collide” trek, which was due to kick off in Brussels on April 4, will now move to later this year. Specific information dates for the rescheduled shows will be available shortly. All existing tickets and VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.

Evanescence singer Amy Lee said: “As many of you have already predicted, it is beyond our control that our upcoming European tour will have to be postponed. The show WILL go on, and we are already busy locking in the new dates for this fall. We are disappointed to make you wait, but fully agree that your health, safety and lives are more important than a concert. We will be releasing the first new music from our new album very soon, and are going to turn our full focus toward that till the show can go on. Stay tuned for new dates and new music. We love you!”

Within Temptation singer Sharon Den Adel said: “We are sorry to announce that our tour will be postponed. Nevertheless, in the meantime we will continue our preparation for the most kick-ass tour ever and more good news, new WT material will see daylight before the tour starts. We can’t wait to see you when the time comes. In the meantime, take care and be safe.”
