Dee Snider and the rest of TWISTED SISTER lost their drummer in March of this year and subsequently announced that the 2016 touring season (the 40th anniversary of the band’s formation) will be the end of the road for the world-dominating force of nature that is TWISTED SISTER. While perhaps he is best known as the lead singer of the ‘80s sensation, there is so much more to Dee Snider.

Dee Snider continues to make music on his own, releasing a new song, “To Hell And Back”, exclusively via his website HERE as a free download. He co-wrote the song with SILVERTIDE founder/guitarist Nick Perri. This track will be included in a new album that Dee is currently working on with Grammy, Emmy and Oscar winning writer/producer Damon Ranger (LIFE OF PI). The new project will also feature material from Dee's past including his worldwide hits with TWISTED SISTER.

Later this summer, Dee and his band - Nick Perri (lead guitars), Dan McCafferty (rhythm/lead guitar), Nicolai Nifoussi (bass), Joe Franco (drums) - will launch a solo tour which will take him to Europe and South America for festival shows including Rock In Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Rock Of Ages Festival in Baliingen, Germany. He’ll also be performing a number of headlining shows in the US starting with the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD on August 3rd.

Dee Snider has starred in several reality TV shows including appearances in three seasons of Celebrity Apprentice, Gone Country With John Rich, MTV’s Rock The Cradle with his son Jesse Blaze, Growing Up Twisted, an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle, ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap and Celebrity Holiday Homes. He has also been a frequent host on the MTV Networks and, with more than 20 years on the air in radio, his own long-running, nationally syndicated radio show House Of Hair can be heard on over 200 stations in North America and at Houseofhaironline.com. Dee also recently launched a much-heralded podcast “Snider Comments” on the PodcastOne network. His career as a voiceover artist has resulted in Dee being heard in many radio and TV commercials, animated shows, documentaries and a yearlong stint as the voice on MSNBC.

Never setting limits, Dee wrote, produced and starred in Dee Snider’s StrangeLand. This horror movie has become a cult classic, literally creating the torture film sub-genre. The sequel, StrangeLand: Disciple is currently in development. With the success of StrangeLand, Dee was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, Fangoria Radio, on Sirius XM.

In 2002, VH1 signed Dee to star as himself in their original movie production of Warning: Parental Advisory. Co-starring Mariel Hemingway, Jason Priestley and Griffin Dunne, Dee re-created his role during the 1985 congressional record labelling hearings. Battling the Beltway wives, most notably Tipper Gore, Dee, along with Frank Zappa and John Denver, turned DC politics upside down, carrying the banner of his TWISTED SISTER legendary anthem “We're Not Gonna Take It”.

His recent starring role on Broadway in the hit musical Rock Of Ages generated national interest and appearances on The Today Show, CNN’s Joy Behar Show and a legendary spot on The Jimmy Fallon Show where Dee guested with THE ROOTS and Jimmy on TWISTED SISTER’s self-penned hit, “I Wanna Rock”. The Rock Of Ages run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie, Dee Does Broadway, featuring some of the Great White Way's biggest songs, side by side with Broadway legends like Patti LuPone and Bebe Neuwirth, in his own indomitable style. His self-penned memoirs, Shut Up And Give Me The Mic, were released in the summer of 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster to critical acclaim, coinciding with Warner Pictures’ release of the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones, Russell Brand film version of Rock Of Ages, which features two of TWISTED SISTER’s biggest hits.

Since starring in Rock Of Ages and recording Dee Does Broadway, Dee Snider’s Broadway connection has continued to grow. Dee Snider’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas Tale (lyrics, music and book by Dee Snider) completed a highly successful nine-week run throughout the 2014 holiday season at Broadway in Chicago, and is heading for Toronto this year. Dee also produced the off-Broadway hit ensemble Puppet Shakespeare, (five stars, New York Times) and the international award-winning short film Fool’s Day.

In 2014, Dee was the recipient of the prestigious Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award for his charitable work spanning several decades. Most notably, he spent twelve years as the national spokesman and Grand Marshal of the March of Dimes Bikers for Babies initiative (for whom he raised $325,000 with his Celebrity Apprentice win), established his annual Ride to Fight Hunger for Long Island Cares, and donated his Gold and Platinum album awards to Broadway Cares for auction.
