According to www.deesnider.com, Snider said this about the song:
To Hell and Back” represents my first truly new, original musical offering since the 90’s. When my friend and co-writer, guitarist Nick Perri presented me with the riff and music bed for this song, I found true inspiration to write for the first time in decades. Lyrically, the song raises a bold middle finger to those who whine and complain about the difficulties of life, but have no real clue what difficult is. As I say in the song, “Don’t tell me your sad story. Don’t say your world is black. Just spare me your vainglory. I’ve been to hell and back!
Twisted Sister’s is also set to go on a farewell tour in 2016 to mark the band’s 40th anniversary. Snider, in a recent talk with Billboard, said the tour will be as short as it is bittersweet. “We’re only going to do select shows,” he said. “Nothing’s booked, but it will not be a tour. What we’ll do will be based on offers and epicness. I have no desire to go and play a bunch of clubs or small venues, but if Rock in Rio calls, Riot Fest, Bonnaroo, Rocklahoma, those event kind of things. We’ll do a handful of those and say goodbye on a big stage. This isn’t going to be the Scorpions or Judas Priest or Ozzy Osbourne or the Who or Tina Turner – ‘Farewell. We’re back in two years.’ That’s not gonna happen. I guarantee it.”
