Gene Simmons Reveals Full 166-Song ‘The Vault’ Track List
Later today (Jan. 6), in Los Angeles, he'll personally give out copies of the collection and spend one-on-one time with purchasers. He'll make similar appearances around the world through July 2018, and you can see the full list of dates and get complete details on his website.
Gene Simmons Vault Experience consists of previously unreleased recordings that he's made over the past 50 years, including with past and present members of Kiss. It also includes an embossed gold foil commemorative book of rare photos and a "Gene Simmons businessman action figure" and an oversized coin bearing the motto "In Gene We Trust."
Two months ago, we premiered "Hand of Fate" from the Vault Experience, and he told us that he decided to release his archives in this manner because "fewer and fewer people are going to stores, record companies are broken, people are downloading and file-sharing, and I didn’t want my songs to go out that way. That’s like smoke and mirrors ... popcorn farts. You can’t feel it, you can’t touch it, the art of it isn’t there. So I decided to put out a physical box set -- probably the most expensive one ever, and the largest. And the only way people can get it -- there are only going to be a few thousand made -- is through GeneSimmonsVault.com. This has never been done before. Because I’m blessed and I can afford it, I’m physically going to be going around the world and hand-delivering the vault into the fans' sweaty palms."
