Dee Snider Premieres “Down But Never Out” Music Video

Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) has premiered a new video for his song “Down But Never Out.” This track is from his new album “Leave A Scar,“ which was released today (July 30). Snider commented:

“I pride myself on the fact that throughout the decades, my music has always tried to not only push back against all oppressors (in this case Covid-19), but also lift people up and encourage them to fight back. ‘Down But Never Out‘ is a perfect example of this ethos.”

Dee Snider Tests Positive For COVID-19 Despite Being Fully Vaccinated

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider has revealed that he recently tested positive for COVID-19. The frontman has already been fully vaccinated, but some breakthrough cases like his are expected considering the vaccines are not 100% effective at stopping infection. Despite this, the shots are still effective at preventing death and severe illness.

Snider told Ultimate Classic Rock the following:

“I’ve been having problems with my home studio and got COVID in spite of the fact that I’m fully vaccinated. It happened a few days ago. This is about day five. It was really minor, like, nothing that Advil and Sudafed [couldn’t handle]. But … I don’t want to bring my studio guy into fix my technology. I told him to stay out of here. Even though I feel fine, I don’t want to take a chance. Hopefully, I’ll be super-immune. Like I said, I’m fully vaccinated, plus [I got] COVID.”

“I won’t say that I had no effects. It was a little aches and pains, a little stuffiness. But like I said, a Sudafed and a couple of Advil and I was just doing everything, business as usual. You know, I said, ‘Maybe I’ll get tested just for the hell of it.’ I got a home test and I’m like, ‘What the fuck?’ But they’re saying that they think a lot more people who are vaccinated have gotten it. And because it’s minor, they’re not going to the doctor or the hospital, so it’s not being reported. Because I’m hearing a lot of people saying that they caught it. It’s not knocking them on their ass or hospitalizing them, but they’re definitely getting COVID, even with vaccinations.”

He also added:

“My wife decided [to take the grandkids] to Disney World [because they wanted to go]. ‘Okay, I’m going to take you to Disney World.’ She looks online – reservations only, limited [number of] people in, social distancing, masks, must be vaccinated, if not vaccinated, must be tested. So, okay, great. She gets all of the tickets, $1,000 worth of tickets and goes there. No one checks vaccination, no one checks tests. No one’s enforcing masks. It’s packed and they’re all in lines waiting for an hour.

They came back and brought it back with them. There was zero enforcement. And then, you know, once you’re through that gate. They say, ‘Well, why would you take your kids there?’ They’re through the gate and the kids are just running for fuckin’ Minnie Mouse, and it’s non-refundable. They don’t give you a thousand bucks back for all of the tickets you bought. It’s like, ‘C’mon grandkids,’ they’ll be hating Grandma for the rest of their lives. ‘Oh, but I saved you from getting COVID.’ Yeah, that will matter to them.”

Dee Snider Premieres New Song “Time To Choose” Featuring Cannibal Corpse’s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher

Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) has premiered a lyric video for his new song “Time To Choose.” This track features George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (Cannibal Corpse) and it will appear on Snider’s new album “Leave A Scar,“ which is set to be released on July 30. Snider commented:

“‘Time To Choose‘ deals with a subject I’ve addressed often over the course of my writing career: good vs. evil (see ‘Burn In Hell‘). Given the heaviness of this track, I felt adding George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher‘s voice to this would drive home the seriousness of the choices we make. I was honored when he agreed to contribute his incredibly powerful voice.”

Dee Snider’s Episode Of “Celebrity Family Feud” To Air This Weekend

Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has confirmed that his episode of “Celebrity Family Feud” will be airing on June 20. The show will find the musician’s family competing against Terry Bradshaw’s family.

Snider recently discussed his “Family Feud” appearance on Twisted Sister bassist Mark Mendoza’s “22 Now” show:

“My family and I — the whole Snider ‘Growing Up Twisted’ clan — are on ‘Celebrity Family Feud’. And our episode is airing on June 20th on ABC at 8 o’clock [p.m.] on the East Coast. And we went up against Terry Bradshaw and his family. And I will just say we kicked ass and we represented.

Now, it turned out we were the first rock family to be on the show. They’ve had hip-hop, they’ve had pop — they’ve never had a rock and roll family on the show.

“I remember we were kind of debating, like, do we go in and treat it like it’s a joke — you know what I mean?! Just like a big goof out of it — or do we take it seriously. And they expect us to be a joke. So we wanted to go in there and go for the gold. So I can’t say how it went other than to say we kicked ass. That I can say.”

Dee Snider Premieres “I Gotta Rock (Again)” Music Video

Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) has premiered a new video for his new song “I Gotta Rock (Again).” This track is from his new album “Leave A Scar,“ which will be released on July 30.

Snider commented:

“‘I Gotta Rock (Again)‘ is the starting gun for this album and the driving motivation behind me returning to the studio to record ‘Leave A Scar‘. At the end of 2019, I had felt my recording and live performing was over, but I didn’t announce it to the world. I mentally had decided I was done. But the state of things in 2020 had other plans for me. Between COVID and the political state around the globe, I found myself yearning (yes, I yearn) to get back in the studio. In the immortal words of Ice Cube, ‘I got somethin’ to say!’”

He also said the following about the album:

“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 [Hatebreed’s] 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.”

Jasta added:

“Getting to work with Dee again has been incredible! The power and range in his vocals on this album really shine. Not only is he an American treasure and staple in the rock/metal community, he’s a truly original voice and talent like no other. Combine that with the metallic prowess of the Bellmore bros + Russell Pzütto and Nick Petrino, you get a rockin’ metal recipe that even the most “Dee-hard” SMF’ers will surely love!”
