KISS' official web site, KissOnline.com, has uploaded video footage of KISS performing the song "Modern Day Delilah" on June 29, 2011 at CN Centre in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. Check out the clip below.
KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons spoke to the QMI Agency earlier this month about the progress of the recording sessions for the band's new album. "We have all the songs arranged and written and all that," he said. "Like [2009's] 'Sonic Boom', all the songs were written by the band. Paul [Stanley; guitar, vocals] is producing this one, too. The first day in the studio, we cut two songs. So we're steaming ahead, not thinking too much about it."
When asked if KISS is aiming for the same late-'70s vibe as "Sonic Boom" for the new CD, Simmons replied, "It's not just late-'70s, it's the classic sound of all time. Styles come and go; the only thing that sticks is THE [ROLLING] STONES and AC/DC, meat-and-potatoes stuff. That stuff is forever. When was the last time you listened to MEN WITHOUT HATS? I personally would like to find the guy who came up with the name of that band. It's the stupidest name. You will never get laid with a name like that. MEN WITHOUT HATS. Oh my fucking god. Kill me now. You might as well wear a T-shirt that says, 'Please beat me up.'"
