Paul Stanley Thinks KISS Should Make New Album


(Classic Rock) Paul Stanley thinks KISS should make another album - even though he admits fans are "not interested" in new material. The frontman says the follow-up to 2012's Monster would only be worth making if the band felt a creative desire to do so - as fans simply tolerate new material from classic rock bands rather than anticipate it.

Stanley tells Miles Schuman: "It's only worth doing it if, artistically, you want to do it. Every time we finish an album, I kind of go, 'Well, that's it.' When we did Sonic Boom, it was because the band was so good that I just thought to not capture the band and do new material would be a shame. But once we did Sonic Boom, I said, 'Well, we've made the point.'

"Then, a few years later, it was, like, 'Wow, why don't we dig deeper and get a little closer to the roots and the people that we loved and kind of do something else,' so we did that, and then I said, 'We're done.'

"Lately I've been thinking, yeah, we should do another. But there's no secret that when anybody who's considered classic or of our generation does a new album, most people are not interested in hearing that stuff - they tolerate it at best." Read more and watch the full video clip here.
