The reissues are in celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary
KISS will reissue nine of its catalog titles on vinyl, and will debut one for the first time on the classic format, on April 1st as part of the band’s 40th anniversary.
Titles to be released are the band’s debut self-titled Kiss (1974), Hotter Than Hell (1974), the double album Alive! (1975), Destroyer (1976), Dynasty (1979), Unmasked (1980), Lick It Up (1983), Animalize (1984) and Revenge (1992) while 1998’s Psycho Circus will make its vinyl debut. Alive was reissued on the classic format in 2008.
Little is known about each reissue including track listings, packaging, etc. Each is available for pre-order via Amazon for $37.85, except for Alive which is $51.50, so it’s speculated that these will include more than one disc per album, and be some sort of 40th anniversary commemorative release. However, no official announcement has been made by the band or their label and Amazon hasn’t included any further information in their listings as of press time.
The reissues will drop before the band’s long overdue induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014.
You can pre-order each of the albums at our links, and remember, Amazon tends to fluctuate their prices frequently so they could be lowered closer to the release date.
