Official Kiss ‘Monster’ Album and Tour Magazine Due This June
Kiss will celebrate their new album with a new magazine. The rock band announced on their official website that 'Kiss: Monster -- The Official Album and Tour Magazine' will be out this June. The 72-page magazine is "made by Kiss fans for Kiss fans."
Included in the pages are dozens of rare photographs, many never before published. Also fans will find interviews with Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, plus a look at all the different styles of Kiss costumes through the years, including their current look.
Of course there will be plenty of information about the new album, but editor Chris Alexander promises a critical look at the full Kiss discography as well. More niche articles like an in-depth retrospective of the band's television movie 'Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park' will also be included.
The magazine is being produced by Fangoria. Alexander is the editor-in-chief at Fangoria, and a card-carrying member of the Kiss Army. Previously Simmons hinted that the album will be out in July -- it's not entirely clear if by releasing news of this magazine the band is also revealing an updated released date for the 'Monster' album. Of course this publication is in addition to the "100-pound book" that Simmons said the band is also working on for fans.
