For years, she’s lit up the stage with Alice Cooper. Now she’s turning up the heat with her debut solo album and a scorching new video. Nita Strauss has revealed the details for her Controlled Chaos record and given fans the first taste of new music from the album with the song and clip for “Our Most Desperate Hour.” Watch fiery new clip below:

Strauss has signed a deal with Sumerian Records for her solo music and her Controlled Chaos disc is now on the release schedule, set to drop on November 16. “From bright and fun to aggressive and dark, from peaceful to chaotic, this album is a way for me to give the listener a glimpse into my personality and what goes on inside my mind,” says Strauss of the upcoming set.

Nita will also be hitting the road in support of her upcoming release. Just a few days after the album arrives, Strauss will kick off just over a month’s worth of dates on November 19 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Angel Vivaldi will also be part of the trek. See all of the upcoming shows listed below.

Controlled Chaos is currently available for pre-order via Nita’s website. The set is also available to pre-order via Amazon, iTunes and GooglePlay. The album artwork and track listing for the disc can be viewed below.
