Fan-filmed video footage of Dee Snider's August 7 performance at the Rockin' The Rivers music festival outside of Three Forks, Montana can be seen below. Featured in the set was a new Dee Snider rock song called "To Hell And Back", which the singer recorded with his solo band, including former Silvertide guitarist Nick Perri. The track will be included in a new album that Dee is currently working on that will also feature material from Snider's past, including his worldwide hits with Twisted Sister.
"To Hell and Back" represents my first truly new, original musical offering since the 90's. When my friend and co-writer, guitarist Nick Perri presented me with the riff and music bed for this song, I found true inspiration to write for the first time in decades. Lyrically, the song raises a bold middle finger to those who whine and complain about the difficulties of life, but have no real clue what difficult is. As I say in the song, "Don't tell me your sad story. Don't say your world is black. Just spare me your vainglory. I've been to hell and back!" - Dee Snider
