Twister Sister’s Dee Snider Gearing Up for Solo Album Release
Dee Snider, of Twisted Sister fame, is prepping for the release of his new solo album, WE ARE THE ONES, which will be released in October
No stranger to the music scene, Snider’s album is electrifying and leaves nothing to be desired. The musician has combined several different sounds, without sacrificing his artistry. In fact, the rocker even included a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” for the album.
Also featured on the album is Snider’s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole.”
“I always thought it was a great song, a powerful song,” Snider explains about the famed song, “I can’t wait to do that one live. Like ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is iconic, ‘Head Like a Hole’ is iconic for that era.”
Snider on his new musical direction:
“You can’t expect others to embrace what you do if you don’t embrace it yourself,” he admits. “I have to believe it first before I can expect anybody else to believe it. When you’re creating a new record, you want to make a statement, and you want to have music you can stand behind and feel strongly about. So it was a little unnerving when I started heading down this path. After Damon and I cut the first four tracks, I said, ‘Oh yeah, there is a place for me here.’ This is music I feel excited about, and I also look forward to playing it live.”
Snider on focusing on the music of now and yet to come:
“Music inspires that genuine enthusiasm. I’m not anti the past — I’m just not one of those guys sitting there singing about the glory days. To me, these are the glory days, and the days to come are the glory days. And this new record is the part of my next glory days.”
It sure is. WE ARE THE ONES opens an exciting new chapter in the ongoing, never-ending glorious saga of DEE SNIDER. And that’s how you come to rule the world.
