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.

Dennis Dunaway will feature on NBC's Access Hollywood on Thursday July 2nd at 7PM EST talking about Alice Cooper and his book. As far as I know this is only available in the USA.
The book is actually going into a second printing already so thanks to everyone who bought a copy!
Dennis's interview on 'Nights with Alice Cooper' can be heard now on the radio show app which you can get from iTunes or Googleplay, and there is another short DD article at TribLive.

Dynamite Entertainment are releasing a new Alice Cooper comic book series which pairs Alice with another of their characters 'Evil Ernie'! Titled 'Alice Cooper vs. Chaos!' it's a five issue mini-series with the first issue due September by writers Tim Seeley and Jim Terry, with Terry also doing the art. Covers will be by Joyce Chin.

Michael Munroe of Hanoi Rocks again made a guest appearance with Alice at the Helsinki show (as he has done a few times now) and Blabbermouth have video. Hanoi guitarist Andy McCoy was also at the show.
