Dee Snider working on “very aggressive metal record” to release in spring 2018
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider is already at work on a new solo album to follow up last year’s solo release We Are The Ones. Snider has characterized his new solo album as a “very aggressive metal record” to be released in the spring 2018 and to be produced by Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta.
Blabbermouth has reported as follows:
In an interview with Poughkeepsie radio station 101.5 WPDH on October 31, Snider discussed how his pairing with Jasta came to be. “I decided to do a very aggressive metal record — a true metal record. I start recording the album today for release next spring,” he said. “Jamey is a fan of mine, and I was on his podcast, and he literally challenged me on the air. He said, ‘Dude, you’re iconic. I think you need to do a true metal record. Think Rob Halford‘s ‘Resurrection‘, think in that direction. I go, ‘Well, what do you got in mind?’ He goes, ‘Dude, I will produce it, and I’ve got songs, and I’ve got people stumbling over each other to write a song for Dee Snider.’ Then he just started sending me music. The new stuff is powerful; it’s great; and I’m excited about the next tour, which will start next spring.”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of We Are The Ones: “In the end, if the goal of We Are The Ones was to compete with contemporary, forgettable, power pop that will fade into obscurity — then mission accomplished. My gut feeling is that We Are The Ones will disappear into obscurity which will prove Dee Snider right (again).”
