Kiss star Gene Simmons insists the legendary rockers will never make another record because music is a dying industry.

The band will embark on an extensive European tour later this year but the Crazy Nights hitmakers have not released an album since Psycho Circus in 1998.

And Simmons is convinced they won't be rushing back to the recording studio as there is simply no money to make in selling LPs any more.

He says, "There's no new Kiss material because there's no record industry. Any band who tries to do new material is trying to climb a slippery mountain.

"Every day record companies are folding. It'd be nice to have new Kiss songs, but what's the business model? Do you just put songs on the Internet for free? Then what?'
