The glam rockumentary arrives on Blu-ray this February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Music Box Films will be releasing 'We Are Twisted F***ing Sister!' on Blu-ray on February 23.
In the mid-1970s, Dee Snider and his Twisted Sister bandmates claimed glitter rock for their own, cross-dressing their way to headlining every club within 100 miles of New York City, from New Jersey bowling alleys to Long Island beach bars. With gigs six nights a week, they were the most successful live bar band of suburban New York, selling out 5,000-seat shows fueled by their no-holds-barred stage presence and aggressive metal setlists. But by the early 80s, they found themselves balancing on a double-edged sword, hugely popular with local audiences but without a national following or a record deal to speak of. When Twisted Sister finally got their big break in 1983, they d go on to become one of the biggest glam rock bands of the decade, their over-the-top live shows drawing sell-out crowds and their music videos defining an early MTV network. To anyone who knew the hard-fought battle they d won to get there, the band that killed disco was no overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED FUCKING SISTER! is the mesmerizing, wickedly appealing and never-before-told story of the ten grueling years leading up to the band s legendary career, recounted directly by the band themselves, their managers and their biggest fans.
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
