Phoenix Hard Rockers CO-OP, featuring Dash Cooper, son of legendary rock icon Alice Cooper, released their self-titled LP in June via ELLEFSON MUSIC PRODUCTIONS/SPV. The album features guest appearances from Alice Cooper on “Old Scratch”, and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry on “Howl”.
CO-OP has released a full-streaming-audio video for their new single, “Howl”,
featuring a guest appearance from Hollywood Vampires/Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry
Additionally the band released a lyric video in May for their hit single “N.O.W”, which hit #5 on the (US) Mediabase Classic Rock chart. Filmed and edited by Melody Myers (Escape The Fate, Drake Bell, Marc Rizzo, Combat Records), the “N.O.W.” video also features an intro cameo from vocalist Dash Cooper’s father, legendary rock icon Alice Cooper, an actual song introduction from Cooper’s nationally syndicated radio show NIGHTS WITH ALICE COOPER, where the song is in full rotation as a “Future Classic”.

No strangers to performance, since forming in 2014, with a current lineup featuring Dash Cooper (Lead Vocals) Jeremy Tabor (Guitar), and Justin Swartzentruber (Bass), CO-OP quickly amassed a following in the local Phoenix scene. Despite just rounding the corner into their full-length studio debut, CO-OP are already seasoned rock veterans, having opened massive shows for the likes of Motley Crue, Hollywood Vampires, and KISS, and played backup band to the likes of Alex Lifeson from Rush, Don Felder of The Eagles, and of course Alice Cooper (in addition to frequently performing as Alice’s backup band, and Alice coming to jam at CO-OP shows, the band recently played halftime at the Phoenix Suns game where they performed Cooper classics “School’s Out” and “I’m Eighteen”, with co-vocals by Alice and Dash) . Not bad for a band who hasn’t even released a record yet.
In 2017, the band signed to EMP LABEL GROUP, the label of David Ellefson of Megadeth, and released an EP while setting out to work on their full-length debut.
Says Ellefson, “Alice Cooper took Megadeth out on our first big tour, and we’ve always had a great relationship. Alice wrote the foreword to my book MY LIFE WITH DETH. So it’s been really exciting to be able to bring that relationship full circle and work with Dash and CO-OP, who have grown into an incredible Rock band.”
