Twisted Sister release Love Is for Suckers
Love Is for Suckers is the fifth album by the heavy metal band Twisted Sister.
According to the Live At Wacken DVD, the material was originally meant to be a solo album by Twisted Sister's lead singer, Dee Snider, but Twisted Sister's record company pushed for it to be released by the band. It was released by Atlantic Records on August 13, 1987. This would be their final studio album, as all albums during their break-up have been compilations or live albums. The tour for the album ended in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 10, 1987. Two days later, on October 12, 1987, vocalist Dee Snider announced his departure from the band.
Dee Snider has stated that he likes many of songs on the album, vocally. However he feels that if they play any of them live, then it may bring back bad memories for the band.
No songs from this album appeared on the band's 1992 greatest hits album Big Hits and Nasty Cuts.
