VIDEO: KISS and Scooby Doo film preview

KISS are teaming up with Scooby Doo and the gang for a new direct-to-video animated film, “Scooby Doo! and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery.”

USA Today reports KISS members voiced their own characters for the project, which centers on a Halloween concert at the group's amusement park Kiss World.

Scooby, Shaggy and the rest of the Mystery Inc., gang drop by to hear some tunes but wind up partnering with the musicians to take on the Crimson Witch, a spooky lady with a nefarious plan to summon the evil and powerful Destroyer from the alternate dimension of Kissteria.

The film will feature six classic KISS tracks plus a new song written by the band specifically for the film.

The adventure also features guest-voices by Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Darius Rucker, Garry Marshall, Penny Marshall, Jennifer Carpenter and Pauley Perrette.

“Scooby Doo! and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery” will be releases on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on July 21.

KISS are currently playing a series of 40th anniversary concerts this month in South America before heading to Europe for shows starting May 29 in Munich, Germany.
