TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider spoke to Billboard about his new solo album, “We Are The Ones”, which will be released on October 28 Red River Records (distributed by BFD/RED). Produced by Grammy-, Emmy- and Oscar-winning songwriter Damon Ranger, the record is described by Dee as “an album that is think part FOO FIGHTERS, part IMAGINE DRAGONS, part THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS.” He added: “Forget anything from the past. Most of my heavy metal fans are gonna hate it; I’ve abandoned my past to move forward.

Asked if there was one song that shaped the sound of this record, Dee said: “The first song [Damon] brought me was a song called ‘We Are The Ones’, which is the title track from the album. Thematically, Damon says it’s the message of Dee Snider fighting back and rebellion… it’s believing in yourself. The ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ message is eternal and that should continue on.
