Info for Come Out And Play (Remastered)



Armoury Records begins the process of remastering and reissuing a number of albums from New York metal band Twisted Sister. “Come Out And Play” is the follow up to the monstrous “Stay Hungry” album that catapulted Twisted Sister to the masses. The album features the title track, “You Want What We Got” & “Be Chrool To Your Scuel”, which features Alice Cooper, Billy Joel & Brian Setzer all performing on the track.

Twisted Sister was caught off guard with the success of the band's multi-platinum 1984 album, „Stay Hungry“, which spawned a pair of popular MTV videos, "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock." After the band toured for the better part of a year, Twisted Sister went right back in the studio to work on its fourth full-length album, „Come Out And Play“, released in 1985. Instead of returning to the hard-hitting metal of its first two albums, the quintet continued in the more commercial direction of its last release.

„Come Out And Play“ includes a number of stylistic diversions, including a lighthearted cover of the '50s standard "Leader of the Pack," and a song in which several non-heavy metal stars (Billy Joel, Brian Setzer, among others) are featured, "Be Chrool to Your Scuel." There are also songs that are reminiscent of the band's heavy metal past, like the title track and "Kill Or Be Killed."

Twisted Sister
Formed in 1973, Twisted Sister combined the theatricality of the glam rock movement with the sharp edge of groups like David Bowie and Alice Cooper to conjure its one-of-a-kind sound. The band made its bones on the Tri-State area’s club circuit before signing with Secret Records in 1982 for its debut, Under The Blade. Soon after the album’s release, the British label went bankrupt.

The group rebounded a year later, when Atlantic Records signed the band on the strength of a powerful performance on British television. Twisted Sister’s Atlantic debut, You Can’t Stop Rock ’N’ Roll, was certified Gold.

The band’s 1984 follow-up, Stay Hungry, was a Top 20 smash that stormed the charts with “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” a pair of fist-pumping anthems of youthful rebellion that went Top 40 and helped the album sell more than three million copies.

Come Out and Play was released in 1985 and went Gold thanks to a tongue-in-cheek cover of the Shangri-Las’ “Leader of the Pack,” a longtime live staple dating back the band’s club days. Soon after 1987’s Love is For Suckers, Twisted Sister stopped performing live.

More than a decade after its last show, Twisted Sister reformed in 2001 for a benefit. The quintet quickly picked up were it left off, notching an astonishing run of more than 9,000 (and counting) performances, 75 headline festival dates performing in front of two million people in over 23 countries.

In 2006, the band returned to the charts with A Twisted Christmas, a best-selling, holiday smash album that buzzsaws through yuletide classics and was hailed by the Associated Press as the “second greatest Christmas album ever made” behind Elvis. That same year, the Long Island Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Twisted Sister.

Rock of Ages, a current Broadway hit with five Tony® nominations, features Twisted Sister prominently in its storyline as well as the band’s iconic anthems, “I Wanna Rock and “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which rank world wide among the most requested and licensed (movies, TV shows, commercials) songs of the 80’s.

Twisted Sister is one of a select few legendary bands that still tours with its original recording line-up intact.

Twisted Sister’s 38-year legacy includes sales of more than 12 million records (35 Gold and Platinum awards from 8 countries) and their electrifying stage show has made them one of the most successful rock festival attractions in history, currently headlining the worlds biggest rock festivals in 28 countries.

This album contains no booklet.
