Twisted Sister Announce They Are Splitting Up

Hair metal legends Twisted Sister have announced they’re splitting up following the completion of their final tour. The news comes soon after the death of drummer A.J.Pero, but a rep for the band claims that they made their decision before the tragic event took place.

After completing 2016’s awesomely-named “Forty and Fuck It” Tour, Dee Snider and the crew are calling it quits. In addition, they plan to honor their fallen comrade Pero with two tribute shows in the coming months. In addition to long-time members Dee, Jay Jay French, Mark Mendoza, and Eddie Ojeda, the band will get drumming help from Mike Portnoy of Adrenaline Mob.
