KISS will release their 20th studio album in October.
"Monster" is the group's first studio effort since 2009’s "Sonic Boom"; it was produced by Paul Stanley with Greg Collins at Conway Studios in Hollywood, California, and The Nook in Studio City, California.
The album’s first single, "Hell Or Hallelujah," will be available digitally on Monday, July 2 (internationally), and on Tuesday, July 3 in North America.
The project features collaborations among all four KISS members — including co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, and longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer.
"There are no symphony orchestras, boy choirs, keyboards, outside producers or songwriters on this album," says Simmons. "The best thing we did was to turn inwards to ourselves. Tommy and Eric have revitalized this band, with a work ethic and the talent to back it up. This is a real band effort. KISS has become a behemoth. We're going where no bands have gone before."
