Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Recording New Music For Upcoming Compilation
October 9, 2014
On the way in the spring of 2015 is ‘Rock and Roll Ain’t Dead — Dee Snider Essentials 1983-2015’, a new compilation that will feature music from all of Snider’s projects over the years including Twisted Sister, Widowmaker, Desperado, Van Helsing’s Curse and Dee Does Broadway. Also included in the collection are three brand new songs… Snider’s first in over 20 years!
“My writing partner (and inspiration, really) is an amazing blues-rock guitarist named Nick Perri (Silvertide, Shinedown, Perry Farrell, Matt Sorum and more),” says Snider. “I will be dropping the first single, ‘Rock And Roll Ain’t Dead’, on March 15, 2015 — my 60th birthday — and the album after that (age pun fully intended). There will be a video and a number of select solo shows in the spring and summer of 2015.”
Dee Snider’s new solo band includes lead guitarist Nick Perri, guitarist Dan McCafferty (Dee Snider’s SMFs, Dee Does Broadway), bassist Nicolai “Nosferatu” Nifoussi (Automatic 7) and drummer Joe Franco (Widowmaker, Van Helsing’s Curse, Twisted Sister, Good Rats).
In case you were wondering, Snider is not quitting Twisted Sister and plans to do several live dates with them next summer.
Every week Snider hosts a two-hour syndicated radio show called House Of Hair. Bang your head with your fellow metalheads and The House of Hair on over 200 stations nationwide at www.houseofhaironline.com.
