KISS' "Hell or Hallelujah" single is the #1 rock single on Amazon UK!

KISSOnline has been receiving fan reports that the debut single from MONSTER is topping charts everywhere internationally!

The single will be available in North America tomorrow.

Early reviews:

Called "Hell or Hallelujah", the song flashes back to classic tracks like 1976's awesomely trashy "Makin' Love", with more than a dash of their speedier 80's output. - Fangoria Magazine

A tantalizingly raw opening riff straight out of Paul Stanley‘s ‘I Stole Your Love’ playbook kicks off ‘Hell or Hallelujah,’ the new single from Kiss. - Classic Rock

KISS' drummer and guitarist in KISS talk concerts, the band's farewell tour, and making the best album in years.

Saturday night Kiss was the last band on the final night of Kollen Sommerfestival. This was one of two concerts the band is doing in Europe this summer. Then, they're off touring the United States with Mötley Crüe. There are several reasons why Norway and London were the only stopovers in Europe.

"That's because you are special, we just had to play in Oslo," laughed Tommy Thayer. "No, it is a combination of several factors. Originally we were going to play at Sonisphere, but it was for some reason canceled. But then we had a partial event in London that were already planned, and we also got a surprise offer to play at this festival. So a lot was about the timing."

Fans who met up at Sommefestival did not hear the new single "Hell Or Hallelujah", which is the first track from the upcoming album, Monster, even though the single is being released next Monday.

"The main reason we came here was to make preparations for the upcoming single release in London, so we're going to play it when we get there. We can't play it until it is actually released on Monday," explained Eric Singer.
