Kiss to release new album at Wal-Mart, Sam's Club

The veteran heavy metal group, Kiss, is joining a growing list of classic acts putting out new music through the world's largest retailer.

"Sonic Boom" is due to be released only at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores on Oct. 6. The three-disc package will include a CD of the band's first new music in 11 years, re-recorded versions of famous Kiss hits and a live DVD.

Paul Stanley - one of the quartet's two original members, along with Gene Simmons - said the band chose to release the album at Wal-Mart because the store allowed them to make it memorable.

"They offered us an opportunity to do something that's very much in line with what we used to do with our classic albums, and that's to give people more than just an album of music," Stanley said in an interview last week. "We've always believed in trying to make an album a special event."

Any rock music fan knows who Paul Stanley is.

Paul Stanley is the Starchild, the lust-oozing singer and guitarist of one of the biggest bands in the history of rock and roll.

Onstage he's a commanding presence, somewhat of a rock and roll preacher - if you will; a crooner, a lover, and a circus leader. And those jumps he makes in six-inch, knee-high boots are poetry in motion.

Paul Stanley is 'the one with the star painted on his face,' but the canvas Stanley works with goes far beyond the realm of greasepaint and lipstick. Although coming to know Paul Stanley as an artist may seem to some as if it's a new development in the man's life but it's far from it. Having majored in art, Stanley graduated from the acclaimed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City - the school that the movie and television show Fame were based on.

MY TESTAMENT TO
Hi KISS,

Here is a living testament for me to KISS. The band made a difference in my life. My custom airbrushed Ibanez RGT42DXBP features a KISS Dynasty motif. Dynasty is my favorite recording from the band. This artwork was done by JEFF RICH of RCA GUITARS, who did more than an amazing job for me. I feel lucky that I found an artist that was able to do this design with such detail.

KISS - thanks for changing my life and for changing the lives of millions of people all over the world!

Here are some excerpts from a recent Deuce News interview with Michael Doret, designer of the classic "Rock N Roll Over" album cover. Michael's latest design, the brand new KISS Album cover will be premiered soon on KISSONLINE!

(DN) I am perfectly aware that such definition is way beyond complete as You are among the best designers around and that your art can be seen everywhere, but..you know, we are so next to the D-Day to see the new KISS album title and cover revealed that...

(Michael) I would like more than anything right now to share with you what I did for the new cover. I am very excited about it because I think it is among the very best of my work. But an agreement is an agreement: I gave my word to Paul that I would not reveal anything before the "official" release of information, and I am a man of my word.

TAYLOR SWIFT ES KEITH URBAN
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!!!

Taylor Swift and her band play a hilarious prank on Keith Urban during their concert last night at the Sprint Center on Saturday (August 8) in Kansas City, Missouri.

Hi Gene,

Saturday night on our last night opening for Keith Urban, we played a prank on him. During his hit song, "Kiss a Girl", Taylor (Ace), myself (Gene), Amos (Paul), and Grant (Peter) came out in full KISS regalia. Our backup singers Caitlin and Liz along with our FOH engineer Russell were dressed up as Hershey kisses and tossed them out into the crowd. It was a lot of fun and it was captured on this video from YouTube. Thought you might enjoy it.

P.S. Thanks again for the birthday call in May!

Sincerely,
Paul Sidoti
-guitarist for Taylor Swift
