DEE SNIDER Announces Streaming Concert Event
TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider recently announced his triumphant fifth full-length solo album, «Leave A Scar», out July 30 via Napalm Records. To commemorate the LP’s release, Snider has announced a streaming event for his fans on Thursday, July 29. The concert stream features a very special concert from Snider performing live at Stereo Garden in Patchogue, New York on June 11. All ticket buyers will gain access to the concert stream, as well as on-demand access to any and all content from the event for a 30-day period.
Tickets for the stream are available now at www.metaldepartment.tv.
Snider was joined by his TWISTED SISTER bandmate Mark «The Animal» Mendoza on stage during the Patchogue concert for a performance of the band’s classic song «Under The Blade».
According to Dee, the capacity for the show was limited to 200 vaccinated or tested people due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Once again produced by Jasta with co-production, mixing and mastering by drummer Nick Bellmore, «Leave A Scar» sees Snider & Co. continuing in the invigorated direction of 2018’s «For The Love Of Metal».
Snider said about «Leave A Scar»: «By the end of 2020, I knew I not only had to get back into the studio, but for the first time since the ’90s, I wanted — no, needed — to be a part of the writing process. I reached out to my producer Jamey Jasta and told him I was ready to make another record. ‘Leave A Scar’ is filled with messages to and for the silent voices in the world who need someone to speak out on their behalf. This is my purpose.»
In 2016, TWISTED SISTER embarked on one final trek, titled «Forty And Fuck It», in celebration of its 40th anniversary. These shows featured the band’s «core lineup» of Snider, guitarists Jay Jay French and Eddie Ojeda and bassist Mendoza, along with drummer Mike Portnoy. The band’s last-ever concert took place in November of that year — 20 months after the passing of TWISTED‘s longtime drummer A.J. Pero.
TWISTED SISTER‘s original run ended in the late ’80s. After more than a decade, the band publicly reunited in November 2001 to top the bill of New York Steel, a hard-rock benefit concert to raise money for the New York Police And Fire Widows’ And Children’s Benefit Fund.
