As a lifelong KISS fanatic, I am very excited by the fact that there will be a new record released by them in October. This will mark the first record since 1998's Psycho Circus, and hopefully will be a marked improvement over said record. This will be the first time that guitarist Tommy Thayer has been on a record with the guys, while Eric Singer has drummed with them on record before. All of the haters wanna complain that Ace and Peter aren't in the band anymore, but they ruined thier chances a long time ago. I loved the original band, but it will never be like that anymore. So as a mega-fan, I am happy that Gene & Paul have decided to continue rocking in thier abscense. Word on the street, is that the album will be called Sonic Boom(although it hasn't been confirmed yet). It will be a Wal-Mart exclusive, and will have 2 bonus disc's, one of the Japanese only album they did last year, when recording old songs with the new members, and a Live DVD!! I most definitely will be there to get it on release day......Fuck the haters.
