KISS have released the first taster of their forthcoming new album, Monster. “Hell or Hallelujah” is out now and is the first single to be lifted from their 20th studio album, which is not out until October.
KISS’s Gene Simmons says, “It feels like a connection between Destroyer and Revenge.”
Simmons has told Alfa Rock 105.7 FM that the album featured straight rock songs, no ballads, no keyboards, “just rock … just the band doing what it did on the first three records; write the songs ourselves. Once you know who you are and how you breathe – because every song is like an animal – you try to bring life to the song so it becomes real. Once you know who you are, it’s easy to do – just do what the animal does without thinking about what’s popular, what a producer would do.”
Here’s “Hell or Hallelujah” below.
