Kiss have Announced Details of their New album Titled ‘Monster’
The full details of the new album ‘Monster’ by Kiss have been announced. The metal veterans hope to release their latest album in October. It will be their 20th official studio effort. Their illustrious career has seen 19 other LPs and they will be giving us something new on the 15th of October in the UK. Fans in the USA have to wait for another day before they can get their hands on the record. The artwork has also been released although there is nothing controversial about it.
The album contains no fewer than 13 tracks. One of the highlights is their recent single titled ‘Hell or Hallejulah’. It is the opening track for the forthcoming album. Their bassist Gene Simmons has been speaking about the new album. He said that Kiss is trying to go where no other band has gone before them. Moreover he praised the newcomers to the band Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer saying that they had a great work ethic.
Describing the new album in detail
Apparently there will be no symphony orchestras or choir boards. They have also dispensed with outside producers and keyboards. Moreover all the songs are written by the band. Kiss is turning inwards in order to portray the best of their talents. Gene credits Eric and Tom with revitalizing the band with their talent and commitment to the job. He also points out that this was a real team effort rather than highlighting a particular member of the group.
Meanwhile Kiss is scheduled to headline the Sonisphere Festival this summer but they have since chosen to play an intimate gig at the HMV Forum in London. This happened last month after the festival was cancelled. They will return to the UK for a full tour in the coming months. What about the tracklisting? Here is what they have in store for us:
- ‘Hell Or Hallelujah’
- ‘Wall Of Sound’
- ‘Back To The Stone Age’
- ‘Shout Mercy’
- ‘Long Way Down’
- ‘Eat Your Heart Out’
- ‘The Devil Is Me’
- ‘Outta This World’
- ‘All For The Love Of Rock & Roll’
- ‘Take Me Down Below’
- ‘Last Chance’
- ‘Right Here Right Now ‘Digital Spy
It remains to be seen what they will really do with their new found enthusiasm for music. The new members of the band are certainly making an impact judging from the interviews that are being given in preparation for the new LP.
