Kiss - Monster LP


Rock legends KISS return with Monster, the 20th studio album in their historic career, set for release through Universal Music Enterprises and featuring the full-throttle, autobiographical rocking lead single “Hell or Hallelujah.” The 12-track, straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll album features collaborations among all four members including co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons and longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer

Produced by Paul Stanley as was its 2009 predecessor Sonic Boom, Monster finds KISS at the top of their game, and that’s really saying something, considering their illustrious, 40-plus year history which includes 28 U.S. gold albums, the most gold records for any American rock band, 40 million sales in the U.S., and totals exceeding 100 million worldwide.

Monster represents KISS’ nod to the music that first inspired them to pick up their guitars and flame-throwers and don makeup to entertain millions. The group goes back to their own beginnings. “There are no symphony orchestras, boy choirs, keyboards, outside producers or songwriters on this album,” promises Gene Simmons. “The best thing we did was to turn inwards to ourselves. Tommy and Eric have revitalized this band, with a work ethic and the talent to back it up. This is a real band effort. KISS has become a behemoth. We’re going where no bands have gone before."
