Dee's vibrant new solo album, "We Are The Ones", is due out in October on Red River Records (distributed by BFD/RED). Produced by Grammy-, Emmy- and Oscar-winning songwriter Damon Ranger, "We Are The Ones" crackles with modern energy, from the call-to-arms manifesto of "Rule The World", to the anthemic bonding of "So What" (complete with, yes, a string section) to the intensely synth-driven "Close To You", to the thematically soaring "Superhero" (a song tailor-made for running over the end credits of the next Marvel or DC movie blockbuster if ever there was one). Another significant highlight of the album is a newly re-recorded acoustic version of "We're Not Gonna Take It" which has also been tapped the official anthem for The Recording Academy's advocacy efforts, including the "Fair Play Fair Pay" act. Recently performed in Washington D.C. at the annual Grammys On The Hill event, a video of the song premiered earlier today on Entertainment Weekly's web site and can now be viewed below.
Twisted Sister was one of the first bands I absolutely worshipped and I still consider them and Dee among my absolute favourite metal bands/artists.
There's lots of Twisted Sister and Dee Snider stuff going on these days.
Back in March, a documentary called "We are Twisted F***ing Sister!" was released. If you're a fan of the band, it's a must-see!
Earlier this month the band released a new live CD/DVD/Blu-ray with the first show they performed after the March 2015 death of founding drummer A.J. Pero. Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater) played the drums for them at that show. Obviously a must-have for fans!
In October, Dee will release a new solo album called "We Are The Ones".
Some album info from Blabbermouth:
Totally blown away by the acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It”. Unfortunately the video version is just 1:49, but the full version (3:52) is available on iTunes and of course on Dee's solo album in October, which I'll wait for.
