KISS have released "Hell or Hallelujah," the first single from their upcoming twentieth studio release, Monster. The album drops in October but "Hell or Hallelujah" is spinning on rock radio this week.
In a radio interview, Gene Simmons explained that the track is throwback to the good old days:
"It feels like a connection between Destroyer and Revenge . . . just rock . . . just the band doing what it did on the first three records; write the songs ourselves."
"Once you know who you are and how you breathe - because every song is like an animal - you try to bring life to the song so it becomes real. Once you know who you are, it's easy to do - just do what the animal does without thinking about what's popular, what a producer would do," he added.
All twelve tracks on the album are collaborations between co-founders of the band, Simmons and Paul Stanley, with guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer.
