Paul Stanley would now not “really see a reason” for KISS to record any new track.
The rockers haven’t dropped any new material since their 2012 record Monster, and in an interview with USA Today, Stanley admitted he is more concerned about specializing within the debut album from his aspect undertaking Soul Station.
Asked if any more KISS track is within the pipeline, Stanley replied: “I don’t really see a reason for it, to be somewhat real. For probably the most part, when classic bands set aside out new albums, they’re looked at and listened to and thrown away because they don’t have the gravitas, they don’t have the age that comes with something being a time capsule or being attached to a certain length of your lifestyles.
“I’m no longer alone in that. Whilst you see any classic bands on TV or if there is a concert video, turn off the sound and I am going to advise you at any time when they’re playing a new track because the audience sits down. So or no longer it’s irregular to me that other folks always want you to achieve a new album, but then they swagger, ‘That’s great. Now play your hits.’ So actually, at this point, there is not very any longer a real reward in it. There may be way more of a reward in changing lanes – I’m calm going forward.”
He concluded: “Nevertheless in the case of recording more KISS material, I roughly swagger, ‘Why?’ I believed (songs) Unusual Day Delilah or Hell Or Hallelujah have been as steady as anything I’ve written and as steady as anything we recorded, but understandably, or no longer it’s like new wine. It legal hasn’t aged. So I may rather no longer attempt to roll a stone up the hill.”
And Stanley is now not any longer alone – his bandmate Gene Simmons recently revealed he is now not any longer “incentivised” to release any new KISS track.
