Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

According to their site Alice will be playing at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, IN on August 25th. Tickets go on sale June 30th.
(Thanks Mike)

More Press has turned up for the European shows (Thanks Petra). Two German articles about the Swiss show, the first at and the second at You can also check out more photos of the new show here, here, here and here!

STUK is now back home from a great show in Florence, Italy so time to catch up on what's been happening.

The gallows didn't make an appearance at the Buenos Aires show reportedly because of problems in the argentinian customs. It's now back in the show.
(Thanks Leandro) has post some photos from the Athens show last week. have photos from the Swiss show. has a review of 'Golf Monster'. have an interview with Alice online in .pdf format. have an audio interview as well, in .mp3 format. has an article in the run up to todays show in Sweden. have a nice article about Glen Buxton.

The Dennis Dunaway Project will be playing Daniel Street, 21 Daniel Street, Milford, CT on July 27th.

Neal Smith has his new solo album on the way. He says:
“I have been working on a solo project for at least three years, and hopefully midsummer I will release that. I wrote everything, played guitar, played drums, sang everything. I have a bass player I worked with, Peter Catucci; we recorded it in his studio, and he’s a great singer. I just developed a really crazy character for the music, for the vocals, and I think it’s a little more contemporary than anything I’ve done in a long time. I mean, there are 11 songs on it. There may be some things on it that someone might think sound like classic rock, but for me though, it’s more industrial, more heavy metal, more Euro. There’s a little bit of rap hip-hop in there, and like a said before, there’s a little bit of Euro sort of high-tech metal. But it’s just because I experimented with a lot of different things percussion-wise. So I’m pretty happy with it. I just did the photo session for the CD, and the mixes are almost finished, and hopefully it will go into production and then take about three weeks after that and hopefully release it midsummer. I was inspired by bands like Thrill Kill Kult, King's X, a band out of New York called Shirley Temple Of Doom, a band out of Philadelphia called Tapping The Vein, and Pigface, some really heavy metal, the younger, fresher bands. So I was inspired to do something. People that are familiar with my music think it’s the most contemporary music they’ve heard any of the Alice Cooper band members do. I don’t know if the fans will like it as much as things we’ve done in the past, but again, it’s almost like Alice Cooper fans aren’t really my target audience this time. And I keep telling everybody, this stuff is pretty heavy. It would probably even make Alice blush. I mean, I’ve got to tell you, it’s really X-rated and it’s a lot of fun, and it’s just something really sick I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time. And I just haven’t had the opportunity to do it. And so now I had the time, and just the inspiration to do it…"
Also Gibson guitars has an interview with Neal that I may have missed when it came out. Check it out here.

XFM has a short article about rock bands and the forthcoming UK Smoking ban with a couple of comments from Alice.
