AUDIO: Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider premieres To Hell And Back

Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider is premiering his new solo single, “To Hell And Back.”

The tune was co-written with Silvertide’s Nick Perri, and is planned to be included as part of a new album Snider is working on with producer Damon Ranger.

"To Hell and Back" represents my first truly new, original musical offering since the 90's,” says Snider. “When my friend and co-writer, guitarist Nick Perri presented me with the riff and music bed for this song, I found true inspiration to write for the first time in decades.

“Lyrically, the song raises a bold middle finger to those who whine and complain about the difficulties of life, but have no real clue what difficult is. As I say in the song, ‘Don't tell me your sad story. Don't say your world is black. Just spare me your vainglory. I've been to hell and back!’”

The singer is offering a free download of the tune at deesnider.com

Snider will head out to play some solo shows this summer at festivals in the US, Europe and South America.

Snider and Twisted Sister have announced plans for a 40th anniversary farewell tour next year following the March 20 death of longtime drummer AJ Pero, who suffered a heart attack while playing on tour with Adrenaline Mob.

The group brought in Mike Portnoy to handle drum duties for the previously scheduled 2015 shows and he will also be on board for the 2016 trek.
