Kiss is back on center stage, with their legendary costumes and boisterous guitars, to present their latest work inspired in the tradition of the 70s.

Over eleven years after "Psycho Circus", the famous rockers made up and led by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are back with "Sonic Boom". For this 19th album, Kiss decided to offer a myriad of tubes produced by Paul Stanley and Greg Collins. Already hailed by fans and critics, the album signals a big comeback in the American charts. Warning: these new songs are becoming classics. Far from being outdated, the rockers remind us that their style has not aged.
With the same energy as their debut album, the musicians offer eleven tracks resuming their original sound, which was so successful in the 70s. From the first track, "Modern Day Delilah", the quartet sets the tone with their now-famous guitar riffs. The album continues without a single false note in the worthy tradition of rock 'n' roll with "Yes I Know (Nobody's Perfect)", "All For The Glory", "I'm An Animal", or "Say Yeah" , all sublimated by the incredible voice of the crazy Gene Simmons. With this project, Kiss gets back to basics -- unquestionably the greatest pleasure, and finest hour, for KISS fans.
