KISS Naming Upcoming Album ‘Monster’

August 21, 2011

KISS’ follow-up to the critically acclaimed ‘Sonic Boom’ album will be called ‘Monster’ confirms The band is currently working on the album in Los Angeles for a 2012 release. KISS is planning a massive 2012-2013 ‘Monster’ world tour which will take the band around the globe.

“We’ve recorded eight tracks. Everything’s on except the vocals. There’ll be 10 on the album, with a couple of tracks as bonuses for different projects” KISS frontman Paul Stanley told Classic Rock Magazine in a recent interview. “Sonic Boom was a pivotal album in the sense that we were aware of who we were as a performing band, but we had to re-establish who we are as a recording band. That being done, this is much easier and that much more self-assured.”

When asked about song titled for the new album Stanley replied, “I’d be surprised if the album didn’t start with “Hell Or Hallelujah.” It’s up-tempo, a great riff, definitive KISS. There’s a track called “Born To Be A Sinner,” and Tommy has a song called “Out Of This World” which is terrific. They’re anthemic songs. That’s the nature of how we write. There are no ballads.”

“”Are You Ready?” is a new track that I worked out, wrote, and brought everyone into the studio and said: “Let’s bang this out” continues Simmons. “Another of the new songs, tentatively titled “Wall Of Sound,” we just came up with on the spot. The guts of that song were written in 40 minutes.”
