Dee Snider (ex-Twisted Sister) Premieres New Track “Tomorrow’s No Concern”

A music video for the new Dee Snider (ex-Twisted Sister) single “Tomorrow’s No Concern” is streaming below. It’s from Snider’s new effort “For The Love Of Metal“, which was helmed by Hatebreed/Jasta, etc. vocalist Jamey Jasta and features guest spots from Lamb Of God‘s Mark Morton, Howard Jones (Light The Torch, ex-Killswitch Engage, etc.), Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz, Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore of Toxic Holocaust and Kingdom Of Sorrow‘s Charlie Bellmore.

Says Snider of this new track:

“‘Tomorrow’s No Concern‘ is the perfect first single off of my new album ‘For The Love Of Metal‘. Lyrically it’s about me living for today, not in the past. So many people waste their lives away remembering the “glory days”. While I am proud of all that I’ve done, I’m more interested and excited about what is happening now. In the song I urge the listener to do the same; live in the moment and don’t let the past – good, bad or indifferent – or what might or might not happen in the future ever slow you down!”

A July 27th release date has been set for the album and pre-orders for it are live now at this location. In other news, Snider has told Billboard.com that he recently sold an animated children’s show to Netflix. He wasn’t too forthcoming with the details, but did promise it will have “good music.”
