Music icon Dee Snider has released a moving and heartfelt music video for his new single ‘Stand‘, featuring footage from America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List documentary. New album ‘Leave A Scar‘ is out now via Napalm Records.
Legendary heavy metal vocalist Dee Snider was recently interviewed as part of a powerful new REELZ documentary detailing the aftermath of one of the most horrific tragedies in music history, The Station nightclub fire, entitled America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List. Featured in the documentaries soundtrack is one of the most heartfelt, moving songs from Dee’s latest album, ‘Leave A Scar‘, entitled ‘Stand‘. Today, in honour of the lives lost, Dee Snider and The Guest List director/producer David Bellino proudly unveil a brand new music video for ‘Stand‘, featuring unforgettable footage from the documentary itself.
Dee Snider says about the ‘Stand‘ music video:
“While I didn’t write ‘Stand‘ for The Station nightclub fire documentary, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List, it is a perfect fit. The full tragedy of that horrific night was the despicable lack of support shown for a community in desperate need. ‘Stand’ speaks to the importance for us all to recognise these moments of desperation and do something about them. ‘Don’t leave your mark… leave a scar!’”
REELZ original documentary America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List premiered this past Sunday, 20th February, presenting the deeply personal stories of lives forever altered by the tragic Station nightclub fire that left 100 people dead, more than 200 injured, and devastated the tight-knit community of West Warwick, Rhode Island. Dee Snider has performed at The Station nightclub numerous times throughout his career and was instrumental in bringing together fellow recording artists for a fundraising concert for survivors and victims’ families.
Dee Snider adds:
“Nobody should have to die because they want to see a band and listen to the music they love. Nobody should be scarred for life, be crippled or have their children orphaned because of their love for rock n’ roll. This documentary not only serves as a reminder of this incredible tragedy, but it shines a light on an amazing group of people who overcame unfathomable loss, and survived, even thrived in the aftermath.”
Dee Snider’s latest album, ‘Leave A Scar‘, is an illuminating plentitude of angst etched in time, serving as a musical refuge and expressive output for Dee. But in turn, this auditory time capsule, written to express the anger, unease and pain, emerges as not only crushingly heavy, but relentlessly powerful. Each of the 12 tracks on ‘Leave A Scar‘ not only further bolster Dee Snider‘s position as one of the most celebrated frontmen of all time, showcasing that his vocal delivery and commanding swagger is as strong as ever, but that he is nowhere near stopping.
