'We Are The Ones' Says The Now Solo DEE SNIDER

Artist: 
 
DEE SNIDER will release his new solo album, WE ARE THE ONES, which is due out October 28 on Red River Records (Distributed by BFD/RED).
 
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 recently premiered on Entertainment Weekly’s website and can now be viewed at Grammy.com/FairPlayFairPay.
 
Also featured on WE ARE THE ONES is an explosive cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole.” “I always thought it was a great song, a powerful song,” DEE explains, “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.”
 
With Twisted Sister effectively entering the rearview mirror, DEE now has his sights dead-set 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.”
 
Earlier this summer, DEE took part in the unveiling of the new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame exhibit, “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power And Politics,” which will remain on display in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican National Convention. To commemorate the new Hall of Fame exhibit, DEE performed a new acoustic version of Twisted Sister’s legendary song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” This moving new version of DEE’s epic anthem is currently available on iTunes.
 
In April 2016, DEE was called to Capitol Hill for the second time—the first at the infamous 1985 Senate hearing instigated by Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC)--to speak on behalf of The Recording Academy’s "Fair Play Fair Pay” initiative.  On September 18, DEE will be presenting his new music at Riot Fest at Douglas Park in Chicago, IL.
 
For the first time ever, superstar magician Criss Angel is joining forces with DEE to release a music video featuring the new acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” Directed by Angel, the video aims to raise awareness of pediatric cancer by promoting HELP, a one-night-only, star-studded event which took place on Monday, September 12 at Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to support pediatric cancer research and treatment worldwide. The video sends a powerful message to viewers as DEE belts out the iconic lyrics, while the mother of a young girl—who is a cancer survivor—allows her head to be shaved in solidarity with her daughter and in support of the fight all of these children must endure. The video also features heart-wrenching footage of Criss Angel’s son, Johnny Crisstopher, going through treatments after being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2015. 
 
DEE is unapologetically energized about where he’s going as an artist. “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.”
 
Here’s the complete track listing of WE ARE THE ONES:
  1. We Are The Ones
  2. Over Again
  3. Close To You
  4. Rule The World
  5. We’re Not Gonna Take It
  6. Crazy For Nothing
  7. Believe
  8. Head Like A Hole
  9. Superhero
  10. So What

DEE SNIDER Releases New Song, 'To Hell And Back' Online

Artist: 
 
EXCLUSIVELY VIA OFFICIAL WEBSITE
 
TOUR OF EUROPE, SOUTH AMERICA AND U.S. SET FOR THIS SUMMER

July 7, 2015 -- In March of this year, DEE SNIDER and his Twisted Sister bandmates mourned the loss of their drummer, AJ Pero, and announced that the 2016 touring season (the 40th anniversary of the band's formation) will be the end of the road for the world-dominating force of nature that is Twisted Sister.  While perhaps he is best known as the lead singer of the '80s sensation, there is so much more to DEE SNIDER.

 
DEE SNIDER is continuing to make music on his own, releasing 'To Hell and Back' exclusively via his website, www.deesnider.com, as a free download.  He co-wrote the song with Silvertide founder/guitarist Nick Perri. This track will be included in a new album that DEE is currently working on with Grammy', Emmy' and Oscar' winning writer/producer Damon Ranger ('Life Of Pi').  The new project will also feature material from DEE's past including his worldwide hits with Twisted Sister.
 
Later this summer, DEE and his band--Nick Perri (lead guitars), Dan McCafferty (rhythm/lead guitar), Nicolai Nifoussi (bass), Joe Franco (drums)'will launch a solo tour which will take him to Europe and South America for festival shows including Rock In Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Rock Of Ages Festival in Baliingen, Germany.  He'll also be performing a number of headlining shows in the U.S. starting with the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD on August 3.
 
DEE SNIDER has starred in several reality TV shows including appearances in three seasons of Celebrity Apprentice, Gone Country with John Rich, MTV's Rock The Cradle with his son Jesse Blaze, Growing Up Twisted, an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle, ABC's Celebrity Wife Swap, and Celebrity Holiday Homes. He has also been a frequent host on the MTV Networks and, with more than 20 years on the air in radio, his own long-running, nationally syndicated radio show House Of Hair can be heard on over 200 stations in North America and at Houseofhaironline.com.  DEE also recently launched a much-heralded podcast 'Snider Comments' on the PodcastOne network.  His career as a voiceover artist has resulted in DEE being heard in many radio and TV commercials, animated shows, documentaries and a yearlong stint as the voice on MSNBC.
 
Never setting limits, DEE wrote, produced and starred in Dee Snider's StrangeLand. This horror movie has become a cult classic, literally creating the torture film sub-genre. The sequel, StrangeLand: Disciple is currently in development. With the success of StrangeLand, DEE was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, Fangoria Radio, on Sirius XM.
 
In 2002, VH1 signed DEE to star as himself in their original movie production of Warning: Parental Advisory.  Co-starring Mariel Hemingway, Jason Priestley and Griffin Dunne, DEE re-created his role during the 1985 congressional record labelling hearings. Battling the Beltway wives, most notably Tipper Gore, DEE, along with Frank Zappa and John Denver, turned DC politics upside down, carrying the banner of his Twisted Sister legendary anthem 'We're Not Gonna Take It.'
 
His recent starring role on Broadway in the hit musical Rock Of Ages generated national interest and appearances on The Today Show, CNN's Joy Behar Show and a legendary spot on The Jimmy Fallon Show where DEE guested with The Roots and Jimmy on Twisted Sister's self-penned hit, 'I Wanna Rock.' The Rock Of Ages run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie, DEE DOES BROADWAY, featuring some of the Great White Way's biggest songs, side by side with Broadway legends like Patti LuPone and Bebe Neuwirth, in his own indomitable style.  His self-penned memoirs, Shut Up and Give Me The Mic, were released in the summer of 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster to critical acclaim, coinciding with Warner Pictures' release of the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones, Russell Brand film version of Rock Of Ages, which features two of Twisted Sister's biggest hits.
 
Since starring in Rock Of Ages and recording DEE DOES BROADWAY, DEE SNIDER's Broadway connection has continued to grow.  'Dee Snider's Rock 'n' Roll Christmas Tale' (lyrics, music and book by DEE SNIDER) completed a highly successful nine-week run throughout the 2014 holiday season at Broadway in Chicago, and is heading for Toronto this year.  DEE also produced the off-Broadway hit ensemble 'Puppet Shakespeare,' (five stars, New York Times) and the international award-winning short film 'Fool's Day.'
 
In 2014, DEE was the recipient of the prestigious Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award for his charitable work spanning several decades. Most notably, he spent twelve years as the national spokesman and Grand Marshal of the March of Dimes Bikers for Babies initiative (for whom he raised $325,000 with his Celebrity Apprentice win), established his annual Ride to Fight Hunger for Long Island Cares, and donated his Gold and Platinum album awards to Broadway Cares for auction.
