KISS Begin Work On New Studio Album
April 18, 2011
Kiss entered the studio on March 15 to begin work on their 20th studio album. The classic rockers are now recording the follow-up to their 2009 effort ‘Sonic Boom’, the band’s highest-ever charting album.
Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons updated fans through Twitter.com/genesimmons stating: “Went into the studio today for day one of the new album. We’ve got some rockin’ stuff!”
Meanwhile, Kiss guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley has been posting video updates from the band over at Kissonline.com. “History will be made,” says Stanley in one post. “This album, I’m telling you, everybody agrees, leaves ‘Sonic Boom’ in the dust. So this is awesome, and you’ll be hearing it soon.”
Simmons has also reported to reveal that: “The new record is gonna be the next step to ‘Sonic Boom’. Straight rock songs, no ballads, no keyboards, no nothing, just rock!”
Says guitarist Tommy Thayer, “It’s been a great week in the recording studio working on the brand new KISS album. It truly sounds amazing and the new songs are kicking my ass. We cut basic tracks for a bunch of songs together as a unit in the studio for two or three days. We all agreed that we’ve never got tracks that sound this good before. Yesterday, I took a shot at a few guitar solos. Paul’s producing and doing a superb job steering the ship.”
