Metal Sludge — After a shocking announcement from Nita Strauss earlier today that she is leaving the Alice Cooper Band, the industry is asking where is she going and who is replacing her?

Well, Metal Sludge has some answers, or what we feel are likely going to be the answers.

The word is Nita is headed to perform with pop-star Demi Lovato.

So if she is leaving the Alice Cooper Band, there is going to be a void at lead guitar and the inside scoop Metal Sludge has, is that former Alice Cooper Band member Kane Roberts is going to return to reclaim his position.

Roberts played lead guitar for Cooper between 1985-1988 appearing on both Constrictor (1986) and Raise Your Fist and Yell (1987) before going solo to release Saints and Sinners (1991).

Today Blabbermouth shared a statement from Strauss from her

” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>official IG account: “Earlier today, the 35-year-old Strauss issued the following statement via her social media: “After this absolutely incredible run in Europe, it is bittersweet for me to let you guys know that I will not be joining the Alice Cooper band for the upcoming fall tour. I will also regretfully have to cancel the festival dates my solo band had planned for the rest of the year.

“I AM NOT PREGNANT!!! There is no drama whatsoever and my touring year is still VERY full- in fact, I’m on a flight straight into the next adventure as I post this, and I’ll be on stage again much sooner than you think! But that’s news for another day.

“The past eight years together has been the experience of a lifetime, and I could not be more grateful to Alice and Sheryl Cooper, Shep Gordon, the amazing band, crew and fans for welcoming me to all of your nightmare.

“I don’t know what the future will hold after this, but I am forever thankful”. wrote Strauss.

Of course there is no official confirmation as of yet, but we feel pretty confident that Metal Sludge might be right.
