Rock legends KISS return with Monster, the 20th studio album in their historic career, set for release in October 15 (October 16 in North America) through Universal Music Enterprises. The band’s first single “Hell or Hallelujah,” is available digitally today, July 3, and makes its worldwide premiere with the lyric video across VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, which includes VEVO.com, mobile, connected devices and syndication partners like YouTube. The video can be viewed below:
Monster, the 12-track, straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll album features collaborations among all four members—including co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons and longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer. On July 4, the day after “Hell or Hallelujah” hits digital retail in North America, KISS crosses the ocean for its very own Tea Party, performing an Independence Day show at The Forum in London, a holiday most certainly not celebrated in the U.K., though this show might just offer some reparation for that bitter defeat in 1776. The concert will serve as a benefit for the British “Help for Heroes” organization, which raises money for its wounded, sick and injured troops.
