2024 is a presidential election year in the United States, and Twisted Sister and their frontman Dee Snider have been known to champion some causes. 

Snider recently told The Metal Voice he wouldn’t be surprised if Twisted Sister reunites for one-off appearances to back various causes and/or candidates. 

“Well, I won’t be surprised if we’re reuniting this election year to champion some important causes,” Snider said. “We’re all on the same page — pretty much all of us are on the same page — and I could see us helping fight the good fight. ‘Cause this is a big-picture election, and with things like women’s right to choose, that’s a big-picture thing. That’s gonna hurt the other side. I said ‘the other side’, because I’m not on that side, on the side of Mr. Trump.”

Snider also touched on the recent KISS finale in New York City and shared his thoughts about whether the band is, in fact, retiring. 

“I’m a day one KISS fan,” he said. “Day one. I was living on Long Island in Nassau County. They were in Queens. I heard about this band that was wearing makeup. They were coming out with their first album. And I was, like, all about it, called KISS. Man, I snapped that thing up, and I had the first seven albums.”

“But the idea of the farewell tour, I don’t know what to believe,” he continued. “And people say, ‘Well, do you think it’s for real?’ I said, ‘This is what I know: when I see the bodies in the KISS coffins, then I’ll say, ‘They’re done. They’re done.” When they’re laying there in the coffins, I’ll say, ‘Good work. Good job.'”

Snider also commented on the group announcing they will continue as digital avatars. 

“Oh my god. People, who knows what they’ll pay money to see?” he said. “They’re paying money to see a Michael Jackson avatar, [an alleged] pedophile. In Las Vegas, the show ‘One’, it’s still a hologram and they’re doing all his hits. And it’s been up and running for years. So who knows? Maybe, maybe.”
