"...We Are The Ones, Snider's new baby...is going to take the music world by storm. Ten songs with Snider's signature attitude, a whole lot of big grooves, cutting riffs, and a solid driving force from the first note on the record to the last note on the last song." — AXS.com
One thing you won't ever catch Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider doing is being complacent. "I've never been about living in the past," the groundbreaking metal bandleader says. "The past is wonderful to reflect on and enjoy, but for me, I'd rather show you the latest thing I've been working on. I'm all about looking ahead, and this new record is very much about me moving forward."
Snider's vibrant new solo album, We Are The Ones, is scheduled for release on Red River Records distributed by BFD / RED. Produced by Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar-winning songwriter Damon Ranger, 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).
Snider loves the sound of where he's going with We Are The Ones. "I feel pretty bold in not taking what I think is the easy path at this point (recording "new classic rock," doing a country album, etc.), and instead confronting the current music scene head-on by making great contemporary rock music," he notes. "And the album's message is very much on point with the things I've always been singing about. I'm hoping by moving forward as a solo artist with stuff like this, that the songwriting and performances will stand up to the best of what's going on today. I want to earn my place in the current music scene."
Snider wants to make it quite clear that he has the utmost respect for the legacy of Twisted Sister, the groundbreaking metal band he's proudly fronted and was the sole creative force for since joining them in 1976. The band is officially closing the lid on its storied career in 2016 with a final round of live shows and festival appearances. "I've been a ‘heavy metal kid' since before it was called heavy metal. Even though my new album is contemporary, I'm still the hard rocker I always was," Snider observes.
