Mark July 31 on your calendars for the release of Dee Snider‘s “For The Love Of Metal Live!” on Napalm Records. The DVD/Blu-ray and accompanying live album (available in various formats) features audio captured from several festival performances worldwide — from the United States to Europe, Australia and beyond. In addition to tracks from Snider‘s solo catalog, like “I Am The Hurricane” and “For The Love Of Metal”, Twisted Sister favorites such as “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, and even a cover of AC/DC‘s “Highway To Hell”, the audio portion of “For The Love Of Metal Live!” also features a brand new original studio track, “Prove Me Wrong”.
Check out the new live video of “I Am The Hurricane” about which Snider says: “If there is ever a repeated message in my songs, it’s this: stand up, fight back, don’t take any sh*t from anybody, and f*ck anybody who gets in your way or tries to put you down. It’s a message that constantly needs to be reinforced in us all, myself included. ‘I Am the Hurricane’ is that reinforcement!”
Select audio editions and the DVD/Blu-ray also feature additional bonus live material and personal footage, with the DVD/Blu-ray including even more special bonus interview content like interviews with Snider discussing his famed PMRC hearing, opening for Mötorhead and more.
Snider adds: “The response to ‘For The Love Of Metal’ was so strong, and my new band so good, that I wanted to capture ‘Dee Snider‘ for the new millennium. All of my other live concert releases are all about the past. And while my past is represented here, it is presented along with my new music, played by my new band and is very much ‘in the now.’ The included interviews give insight into my world, my journey and my evolution since I started nearly 50 years ago.”
