Your primer on “the hottest band in the world.”
Simmons and Stanley released their statement on the matter over the weekend.
We spoke to the Demon himself about the album that started it all.
Sure, KISS have been a band for over forty-years, but in a new video, they look better than ever… or at least, better than they’ve looked since they shot the cover of their third album, 1975’s Dressed To Kill.
Among other things, Springsteen and U2 are releasing new albums, and we’re hoping Bob Seger might as well.
Early this morning (December 17), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their 2014 inductees, which included Nirvana, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Cat Stevens and Hall and Oates. Needless to say, those who made it in were excited to receive the honor and more than happy to share that excitement with their fans.
Paul Stanley called into our friends at Los Angeles’ K-EARTH this morning, originally to discuss L.A. KISS, the Arena Football League team that he and bandmate Gene Simmons co-own, but naturally the conversation was dominated by the news of the Rock Hall induction.
The induction ceremony will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on April 10 and will be open to the public. An on-sale date has yet to be announced.
This year, more than 1.3 million votes were cast in the online poll on rockhall.com. A single fan ballot will contain the top five artists and be counted among the roughly 600 other ballots from music industry voters.
The KISS Army is making itself heard, loud and clear.
