INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJALA AND PETTERI LIMNELL

Legendary rock icons KISS are back with their new album MONSTER. The album, the 20th studio release in their long lasting career, is set for release in the middle of October through Universal Music. The follow up for the 2009 release SONIC BOOM includes 12 straight-ahead rock ’n’ roll tracks and it features collaborations of all four band members: Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. The band landed in Europe in early July for a brief promotional tour which included live shows in Oslo and London. We met a very cheerful Stanley in London prior to the bands sold out performance at the HMV Forum and discussed about MONSTER, Kiss Kruise, future plans, as well as many other interesting topics… Read on!

THE MONSTER IS HERE

First of all, the MONSTER is finished and it’s ready to roll, it’s ready to go. How do you like the results at this point?

PAUL STANLEY: I think it’s terrific. I mean I have said it so many time already, you know, the idea wasn’t to make an album that sounded like we once sounded. It was to make an album that sound like we have never sounded. The idea of making of an album that is a retro album… I wasn’t interested of that. I wanted to make an album that has vitality and passion and that’s a great rock album. I don’t want to make a great KISS album. I don’t want to be judged by other KISS albums. It’s ok to judge KISS by KISS but it’s also nice to open up the gates and say not how good is this compared to KISS albums but how good is this comparing to the albums that I love.

Actually, I got an advance copy of the album a while ago and now after several listens I would say that it really is all fresh, it’s all new, it rocks, it’s energetic and kicks major ass.

PAUL STANLEY: I think it’s all we wanted it to be. It’s not a great KISS album, its great rock album. I think this is a great album. I didn’t want us to make an album, some bands remember saying, “Oh, they are making an album that sounds like they did”. I wanted to do an album that sounds like we never did. Something that’s new.

Preview: First Niagara Pavilion season ends Sunday with the hard-rock mayhem of Kiss and Motley Crue

By Scott Mervis / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"The Tour" isn't the first time Kiss and Motley Crue have gone out together, but the last time, the opener was just a hungry, up-and-coming band trying to pitch its debut album.

It was just a handful of dates in 1982, one of the first times Motley Crue ever hit the road in any kind of big way. Arena-rock giant Kiss was on its 10th anniversary Creatures of the Night tour, its first without lead guitarist and Spaceman Ace Frehley.

"Seeing them on stage, it was obvious back then that this was the next big thing," Kiss frontman Paul Stanley said in a news conference announcing the tour.

Mr. Stanley may have been busy getting his makeup and gear on during those Crue sets, but if that's really what he thought at the time, he was dead on. A year later, Crue unleashed "Shout at the Devil," furthering its climb toward arena-headlining status in the mid-'80s.

Thirty years, and many ups and downs later, Kiss and Crue have teamed up for this "Tour" that closes the First Niagara Pavilion season on Sunday.
