DEE SNIDER’S “WE ARE THE ONES” OUT OCTOBER 28TH; EXCLUSIVE PRE-ORDER ITEMS AVAILABLE ON PLEDGEMUSIC NOW

dee-snider

As announced on Billboard.com earlier today, legendary Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider will officially release his vibrant new solo album, We Are The Ones, October 28th on Red River Records (Distributed by BFD/RED).

Not wanting to waste any time in getting his legions of fans excited about We Are The Ones, Dee has launched a PledgeMusic campaign that offers a wide selection of exclusive items, as well as a discounted digital download of the full album upon the release date, including signed drumheads, lyric sheets, guitars, guitar pedals, a signed microphone, and even signed and numbered Dee Snider Legos. Also, a very special dinner with Snider and producer Damon Ranger that includes an early listen of the new album, and having Snider record a fan’s choice of an outgoing voicemail message, “Happy Birthday” or other personalized message as a MP4 digital file. The grand incentive is a full band private performance anywhere in the U.S. All pre-orders come with the AccessPass, which will give fans exclusive artist updates and a behind-the scenes look at the making of the record. To pre-order the record, please visit pledgemusic.com/projects/deesnider.

Produced by Grammy®, Emmy® and Oscar® winning songwriter, Damon Ranger, We Are The Ones crackles with modern energy, from the call-to-arms manifesto of Rule the World, to the anthemic bonding of So What (complete with, yes, a string section) to the intensely synth driven Close to You, to the thematically soaring Superhero (a song tailor-made for running over the end credits of the next Marvel or DC movie blockbuster if ever there was one). Another significant highlight of the album is a newly re-recorded acoustic version of We’re Not Gonna Take It which has also been tapped the official anthem for The Recording Academy’s advocacy efforts, including the Fair Play Fair Pay Act. Recently performed in Washington D.C. at the annual GRAMMYs On The Hill event, a video of the song can be viewed at here.

Also featured on We Are The Ones is an explosive cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Head Like A Hole.

“I always thought it was a great song, a powerful song,” Snider explains, “I can’t wait to do that one live. Like We’re Not Gonna Take It is iconic, Head Like a Hole is iconic for that era.”

Dee Snider is currently working on a fall tour, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

METALLICA RELEASE LIVE PERFORMANCE OF “HARDWIRED,” RECORDED IN MINNEAPOLIS, MN

metallicahardwirecover500

Metallica have released a video featuring their live debut of latest song, Hardwired, which was shot in Minneapolis over the weekend. Watch it below.

Drummer Lars Ulrich revealed that, since, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, had been recorded on an instrument-by-instrument basis, Metallica hadn’t played Hardwired together as a band until five days before the show.

He told Rolling Stone, “I’ve been getting lots of cool texts from buddies, talking about how much they’re digging the new song. It’s a good time to be alive.”

He added, “That’s actually the last song we wrote for the record. We started this album by throwing different ideas around. The shape of it, as a collection of songs, didn’t come into focus until we were deep into it. At that point, the songs were getting tighter, shorter and leaner.

A couple of months ago, we were taking stock of the record and thought maybe we should write one more fast, little crazy song, and that became Hardwired. It just kind of happened. I think James and I and I wrote and recorded it in less than a week – which, for us, is basically a nanosecond.”

Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is set to be released, on November 18th.

AXS CATCHES UP WITH LITA FORD AND EDDIE TRUNK AT SIRIUS/XM’S HAIR NATION’S BATTLE OF THE BANDS IN HOLLYWOOD

hairnationBattkeOfTheBands500

Sari Cohen of AXS reports:

With the upcoming SiriusXM’s Hair Nation Festival happening at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre on Saturday, Sep. 17, the world of rock was front and center on Wednesday night to celebrate the occasion. The gathering was all about the official SiriusXM’s Hair Nation Festival Battle of the Bands which took place at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go. The event featured performances from several unsigned bands competing in hopes of winning an opening slot for one of the stages at the festival next month.

Judges for the evening included Eddie Trunk, Lita Ford, Tracii Guns (LA Guns), Brent Woods (guitarist for Sebastian Bach), and Jay Ruston (producer/engineer for artists such as Anthrax, Steel Panther, Stone Sour, The Winery Dogs, and more). AXS.com was there to speak with some of the judges and to hear all of the new music firsthand as the bands took the stage.

…Lita Ford told AXS, ““[Rock music] it’s really changed. Mainly, it’s not just for men anymore. In The Runaways days we would play a show and we would look out into the audience and it would just be all dudes…But now, you go out and half the front row is women. They’re cheering you on and singing every word. It’s really cool to see”. When it comes to today’s women in rock, Lita sang the praises of Lzzy Hale, and even mentioned that they have some upcoming shows with the band this October.

[AXS spoke with our very own] Eddie Trunk about the evolution of music through the years and explained, “Strictly speaking in rock, the ‘80s became like two different worlds. You had the hard rock stuff, which is really what this festival is about and then you had the harder metal side, which was [groups like] Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer. Both of those genres did really well and coexisted side by side for a while”. Eddie expressed, “One of the things that I really like about what’s happening now is that there’s a real movement it seems, to go retro”. For him, groups such as Rival Sons and Monster Truck have the ability to capture that kind of Rock N’ Roll essence today.

The TV and radio host then left some valuable words of wisdom to musicians out there, “Write great songs. It’s the thing that really separates people from the pack. Production and playing, all of that can be worked on, that can all be built on, but can you write great songs?”

DISNEY CENORS STEVEN TYLER’S OBJECTIONAL HAND GESTURE

StevenTyler500

A video of Aerosmith playing before the Rock N’ Roller coaster ride in Disney World’s Hollywood Studio’s was recently edited to remove Steven Tyler giving the “shocker” hand gesture — 17 years after the clip first started airing.

Tyler — who is no stranger to acting lewd — addressed Disney’s late attempt at censorship on Facebook, joking, “Well now I am in ‘shock.’”

“YOU KNOW I WOULD OWN UP TO THIS DOOZIE…WAY TO GIVE ME THE FINGER NOW Walt Disney World…17 YEARS LATER…SEE YOU NEXT WEEK,” he wrote. “HERE’S TO THE GREATEST RIDE AT DISNEY.”

The ride is an indoor roller coaster that takes thrill-seekers on a limo ride while Aerosmith songs play in the background. The intro video featuring Aerosmith is played before riders enter the cars.

The singer visited the attraction back in March and rode the coaster for his 68th birthday.

The now-edited version of the video shows Tyler holding up four fingers, rather than the inappropriate gesture.

He also tweeted at Walt Disney World, questioning “what exactly do you think this means?” along with a photo of him wearing a hat that reads “f–k” (see below).

It’s unclear why Disney decided to edit the footage years later.
