Paul Stanley Discusses The Possible 2021 Album Of KISS, And It’s Not What We Expect
Paul Stanley, who is the co-founder and guitarist of KISS, spoke in a recent interview with USA Today and talked about the future of the iconic rock band.
As you may already know, KISS has been on the farewell tour since 2019, named End Of The Road, and it is now postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, it is planned to continue this summer.
In the conversation, Paul was asked if KISS is planning to release new material before their retirement, and Paul saddened the community by ending all the rumors about the new KISS songs.
While Paul was saying that he doesn’t see any reason to do such a thing because legendary bands like KISS are attached with the past and people want to hear their greatest hits even though they release new materials.
Here is what Paul Stanley said:
“I don’t really see a reason for it, to be quite honest. For the most part, when classic bands put 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 period of your life. I’m not alone in that.
When you see any classic bands on TV or if there’s a concert video, turn off the sound and I’ll tell you every time they’re playing a new song because the audience sits down.
So it’s odd to me that people always want you to do a new album, but then they go, ‘That’s great. Now play your hits.’ So honestly, at this point, there isn’t a real reward in it.”
