KISS stream Not For The Innocent demo from Creatures Of The Night reissue

KISS are streaming a demo of the track “Not For The Innocent”, as the latest preview to a series of 40th anniversary reissues of their 1982 album, “Creatures Of The Night.”

The song – which was eventutally released on the 1983 “Lick It Up” album – failed to make the cut for the band’s tenth studio set, which featured “I Love It Loud” and “War Machine”; the project followed the disappointing reception for 1981’s concept album, “Music From The Elder”, by reversing a downward sales trend when it reached No. 45 on the US Billboard 200.

Due November 18, KISS will release multiple editions of a 40th anniversary package for “Creatures Of The Night”, including a 5-CD + Blu-ray Audio Super Deluxe Edition, 3-LP Deluxe, 2-CD Deluxe, 1-LP Half-Speed Master 180gm, 1-CD Remaster, as well as a 5-CD Super Deluxe Edition Digital Download + Streaming and 2-CD Digital Download-only version plus a color vinyl exclusive.

The Super Deluxe boasts 103 total tracks with 75 tracks being unreleased. A remastered version is featured on CD 1; CDs 2 & 3 feature 34 demos, rarities & outtakes; CDs 4 & 5 highlight 26 soundboard live recordings from the Creatures ‘82/’83 Tour and seven super rare tour sound effects, all recorded and archived by the Creatures Tour sound engineer Harry Witz. The Blu-ray Audio disc showcases a first-ever Atmos and 5.1 surround mix from the original album multi-tracks plus the high-resolution newly remastered 1982 stereo mix of the original album. The package also features an extensive array of bonus collectible KISS memorabilia and ephemera.

KISS will resume The End Of The Road Tour with a performance at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on November 30.
