"Look at Kiss culture," says Gene Simmons, radiating pride. "People tattoo their bodies with Kiss faces, name their children after our songs, have Kiss conventions.

"This is Planet Kiss; we just live on it. The stage is holy ground, and what we do is electric church."

Holy hyperbole! The kabuki kibitzers of big-top rock are back in greasepaint and spandex, armed with a new album and a fresh stage spectacle to solidify a legacy built on thundering riffs, pyrotechnics, superheroic role-playing and hucksterism.

The singer/bassist, 60, and guitarist Paul Stanley, 57, are meeting in the Sunset Strip office of manager Doc McGhee to chat up Sonic Boom, Kiss' 19th studio album and first since 1998's Psycho Circus. The album, out today exclusively at Walmart, is a three-disc set with a CD of re-recorded hits and a DVD of a Buenos Aires concert packaged with 11 new songs. It's $12, "the price of a sandwich," Simmons crows.

The band began writing last spring, rehearsed tunes in May and recorded in June, wrapping up Boom by mid-July. Reviews have lauded the album's return to the crunch and muscle of '70s classics Destroyer and Love Gun.

CADILLAC NEWS
By Jeff Broddle

The story that has been told and retold, of the rock band KISS visiting Cadillac in 1975 at the invitation of the Cadillac High School football team, will be retold again, this time by the cable sports network ESPN.

Vikings football coach Jim Webb confirmed Friday that an ESPN crew asked permission to film the homecoming game Friday night. The crew also filmed part of the homecoming parade.

Webb said the players were "pumped" to hear the news that ESPN would be on the sidelines for the game.

"I told the players, in case they needed a little more motivation than homecoming, that some of them might be on national TV," Webb said.

KISSONLINE LETTER
I was watching NCAA football yesterday on one of the ESPN networks and Kiss was featured as part of a "prep for commercial" programming package. "All For the Glory" was noted onscreen along with the album title "Sonic Boom" and "Kiss." The music went well with the visual package of amazing football heroics shown.

I thought it would be good to mention this - you may already know about it.

I visit your site several times a week and enjoy the presentation and content you offer to Kiss fans like me.

FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM
The Legendary KISS Is Back On The Road And Starring At Walmarts Everywhere

By GORDON DICKSON

KISS is back with a new record, a concert tour and a promotional blitz coming to a Walmart near you.

Yes, the guys are older now, but they're still wearing spandex, painting their faces and putting on quite a show.

"The thing about KISS is, there's a real timeless appeal to it," lead guitarist Tommy Thayer said in a recent phone interview, before donning his "Spaceman" garb and playing a concert in Montreal. "The same thing that caught people's hearts and passions in the early 1970s is the same thing I see happening with kids today. Obviously, you have to bring kids into the fold for bands like KISS to keep reinventing themselves."

The four-man rock band will unveil its first new music in 11 years as part of a three-disc set titled Sonic Boom that drops at Walmarts nationwide Tuesday. The $12 set, which includes a CD of new songs, a CD of classic hits and a DVD of live

MR. POTATO HEADS AT WALMART
ACTON NEWS 7 ABC
Just in time for the band's momentous return to Cobo Arena, KISS collectibles are making their way to area stores. We were pretty impressed by the Mr. Potato Head dolls immortalizing band members.

There are 4 dolls, one of which has a large tongue and is - of course - instantly recognizable as Gene Simmons.

Metro Detroit Walmart stores are selling the new KISS Mr. Potato Heads in addition to makeup kits, wigs, CDs, and special M&M candies.

According to Walmart, stores here will have the items arranged in special displays within their electronics and Halloween sections.
