Paul Stanley reportedly announces KISS to record new album
KISS‘ frontman Paul Stanley reportedly announced to the audience at the group’s tour stop at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, USA on October 29, 2016 that the legendary shock rockers will be working on a new album soon.
The following post was made on the Rockhead’s Kiss Blog yesterday:
“Paul Stanley announced at the Mohegan Sun show, last night, that KISS is going into the studio to record a new album during the down time!!!
We are so excited about this news, we need a new KISS album!”
KISS‘ last studio album dates back to 2012’s Monster. Sleaze Roxx stated in its review of Monster: “There is no comparison between Sonic Boom and Monster — Sonic Boom is easily hands down the better album. Monster may have the best song, “Hell Or Hallelujah”, but the previous effort has way more quality songs including the very underrated Eric Singer sung “All For The Glory”. Perhaps my expectations were too high after having heard Sonic Boom a few years ago, but Monster does not live up to what I was hoping for — then again, this is still a good CD… just not a great one. At the end of the day KISS scores huge points for continuing to release solid new music while many other bands either release nothing, a teaser track here and there (Twisted Sister and Motley Crue), or simply something terrible (take a listen to Queensryche‘s Dedicated To Chaos). Hopefully, KISS will be releasing at least one more studio album in the future… with Paul and Gene.”
