TWISTED SISTER's DEE SNIDER To Release Three New Songs On 'Rock And Roll Ain't Dead' Compilation

According to Sleaze Roxx, TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider will release a career-spanning compilation, "Rock And Roll Ain't Dead - Dee Snider Essentials 1983-2015". The collection will feature music from all of Snider's projects over the years — including TWISTED SISTER, WIDOWMAKER, DESPERADO, VAN HELSING'S CURSE and DEE DOES BROADWAY — as well as three brand new songs.

"My writing partner (and inspiration, really) is an amazing blues-rock guitarist named Nick Perri [SILVERTIDE, SHINEDOWN, Perry Farrell, Matt Sorum and more]," Snider says. "I will be dropping the first single, 'Rock And Roll Ain't Dead', on March 15, 2015 — my 60th birthday — and the album after that (age pun fully intended). There will be a video and a number of select solo shows in the spring and summer of 2015."

Snider's new solo band includes lead guitarist Nick Perri, guitarist Dan McCafferty (DEE SNIDER'S SMFS, DEE DOES BROADWAY), bassist Nicolai "Nosferatu" Nifoussi (AUTOMATIC 7) and drummer Joe Franco (WIDOWMAKER, VAN HELSING'S CURSE, TWISTED SISTER, GOOD RATS).

A new TWISTED SISTER song, "30", appeared on the 25th-anniversary re-release of the band's classic album "Stay Hungry" in 2009. The track was described as an autobiographical take on the New York group's storied history in the world of heavy metal.

"Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas Tale", starring and written by the iconic rocker, directed by Adam John Hunter and produced by John B. Yonover, will play Chicago's Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut) November 4, 2014 through January 4, 2015.
