Kiss to Record First New Album Since 1998
Wed, 10 Dec 2008 11:12:01
Kiss recently revealed their plans to hit the studio next year in order to record the follow-up to 1998's Psycho Circus. Paul Stanley will oversee production duties on the album—the band's first record in over a decade. This may come as a shock to Kiss diehards, since in the past few years bassist Gene Simmons has been honest about his lack of enthusiasm regarding making new tunes in such a volatile climate for the music business. However, Kiss will be back in the studio cranking out the jams in early 2009.
Distribution plans haven't been outlined yet for the forthcoming, yet-to-be-titled offering. However, it will feature guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer in addition to Simmons and Stanely.
Coming on the heels of their 35th anniversary tour, which rocked across Europe all summer, Kiss will most likely plot a jaunt for North America in 2009 in order to promote the album. They'll no doubt keep the gin cold and the rock warm!
