Alice Cooper Guitarist Nita Strauss Releases New Single With New Band!

Posted by Sydney Taylor on


On April 21st, Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss announced the formation of her newest band, We Start Wars.

The shredder has proven to be most busy lately between her adventures with the legendary Alice Cooper, the formation of her cover band, The Starbreakers, the release of her newest solo song, “Pandemonium”, and now the debut of her latest group.

The band is an all female group featuring Strauss  and Nicole Papastavrou on guitar, Alicia Vigil (Vigil of War) on bass, Seana on vocals, Lindsay Martin (who plays with Nita in The Starbreakers), and Katt Scarlett (Femme Fatale) on keyboards.

On the 24th, the band released their first single “The Animal Inside” through Revolver Magazine. Revolver also got the inside scoop from Strauss on the meaning behind the band’s name:

“A phrase I heard years ago has always stuck with me: ‘Some of the greatest wars in history were fought over beautiful women.’ I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of the female warrior, someone who fights her own battles and doesn’t take shit from anyone, and equally fascinated with the concept that a woman’s love or defending her honor would be worth so much that people would actually put their own lives and the lives of others at risk over it… We Start Wars represents not only the battles that women face in daily life, but also the battles that have followed them throughout history.”

Check out the debut show of We Start Wars on May 25th at The Whiskey A-Go-Go in Los Angeles, CA on May 25th!
