Kiss are currently working on a new studio album to be called ‘Monster’ and released in 2012.

‘Monster’ will be the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Sonic Boom’.

The album is being recorded at Conway Recording Studios in Hollywood with Paul Stanley producing and Greg Collins as co-producers.

Stanley has revealed the artwork will be like the classic ‘Destroyer’ and ‘Love Gun’ albums but by a different artist.

In interviews Gene Simmons has compared this record to ‘Destroyer’, ‘Revenge’ and ‘Sonic Boom’.

The album will feature ‘Out Of This World’, written and sung by guitarist Tommy Thayer. Other known tracks are ‘Hell of Hallelujah’, ‘Born To Be A Sinner’, ‘Are You Ready’, ‘Wall of Sound’ and ‘Monster’.

‘Monster’ will be the 20th Kiss album. Expect it in the second quarter of 2012.
