Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) and Jamey Jasta (HATEBREED) are working together on a new solo album for Snider. We have some more info about the album, set to drop next spring, below.
Earlier this week, Jasta posted a clip on Instagram of Snider tracking vocals at an East Coast recording studio. He also recently revealed on Twitter that former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and current LIGHT THE TORCH frontman Howard Jones will contribute to the album.
In an interview with Poughkeepsie radio station 101.5 WPDH on October 31, Snider discussed how his pairing with Jasta came to be. “I decided to do a very aggressive metal record — a true metal record. I start recording the album today for release next spring,” he said. “Jamey is a fan of mine, and I was on his podcast, and he literally challenged me on the air. He said, ‘Dude, you’re iconic. I think you need to do a true metal record. Think Rob Halford‘s ‘Resurrection’, think in that direction. I go, ‘Well, what do you got in mind?’ He goes, ‘Dude, I will produce it, and I’ve got songs, and I’ve got people stumbling over each other to write a song for Dee Snider.’ Then he just started sending me music. The new stuff is powerful; it’s great; and I’m excited about the next tour, which will start next spring.”
We are HUGE fans of Twisted Sister and can not wait to hear how the album sounds.
