Listen to Dee Snider’s New Song, ‘To Hell and Back’
Twisted Sister may be calling it quits, but Dee Snider isn't. The singer just released a new song, titled "To Hell and Back," at his website and will mount a solo tour before Twisted Sister's farewell jaunt. You can listen to the song above.
"To Hell and Back" was co-written with Silvertide's Nick Perri, and is slated to be part of a new album Snider is working on with producer Damon Ranger. His solo tour will feature summer stops at festivals in Europe and South America, as well as a number of U.S. dates, including the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August.
Twisted Sister's final dates will follow in 2016, which marks the band's 40th anniversary. Snider, in a recent talk with Billboard, said the tour will be as short as it is bittersweet. "We're only going to do select shows," he said. "Nothing's booked, but it will not be a tour. What we'll do will be based on offers and epicness. I have no desire to go and play a bunch of clubs or small venues, but if Rock in Rio calls, Riot Fest, Bonnaroo, Rocklahoma, those event kind of things. We'll do a handful of those and say goodbye on a big stage. This isn't going to be the Scorpions or Judas Priest or Ozzy Osbourne or the Who or Tina Turner – 'Farewell. We're back in two years.' That's not gonna happen. I guarantee it."
Also on tap for later this year is a new documentary, We Are Twisted F–ing Sister!, which focuses on Snider and company before their rise to fame.
