Paul Stanley: I Think KISS Album Will Happen
KISS frontman Paul Stanley believes the band will record another album, despite the doubts he’s discussed in the past.
And he says he has a strong idea of what the work needs to achieve.
The subject of a follow-up to 2012’s 'Monster ' has been under discussion for some time, with Stanley saying in July that the band remained “conflicted.”
Guitarist Tommy Thayer said this month that their 2015 cartoon movie with Scooby-Doo did more for the band than another record would.
Stanley told Cleveland Scene: “Records at this point are really something that if we do, we do it for us more than anybody else. Sonic Boom, there was definitely a reason to do. Monster, there was a reason to do.We’re toying, certainly I’m toying, with the idea of doing another album. I think it will happen. The only thing I’m adamant about is that it’s not Son of Sonic Boom or Son of Monster or son of any other album. I’m not interested in making a concept album, but I’m also not interested in just rehashing the last two albums, so it has to be something fresh. Because initially, the people we’re doing it for, are us.”
'Monster' reached No.3 in the US charts on release, while previous album 'Sonic Boom' hit No.2, giving KISS their highest-ever chart placing.
On August 26, Eagle Rock Entertainment will unleash " KISS Rocks Vegas" on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, DVD+2LP, and Deluxe Edition DVD+Blu-ray+2CD.
