No new KISS music – forever?


It looks like KISS fans can kiss their hopes for any new material goodbye.

Both Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have now basically put the kibosh on plans for the band to record and release new records.

“I don’t really see a reason for it, to be quite honest,” Stanley told USA Today. “For the most part, when classic bands put out new albums, they’re looked at and listened to and thrown away because they don’t have the gravitas, they don’t have the age that comes with something being a time capsule or being attached to a certain period of your life.

“So it’s odd to me that people always want you to do a new album, but then they go, ‘That’s great. Now play your hits.’ So honestly, at this point, there isn’t a real reward in it,” he said.

This follows what Simmons said to award-winning blogger Michael Cavacini a few years ago about how he is not “incentivized” to make new music due to the lack of remuneration.

“The idea that you work your a— off and then someone with freckles on their face decides they want to download your music and file share — that’s not what I work for,” he said.

KISS’ last studio album was ‘Monster’ in 2012.
