As reported on the KISS Facebook:

Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees KISS continue to celebrate their 40th anniversary with the release of a deluxe two-CD version of their 1977 platinum-plus album, Love Gun, coming out October 27, 2014 on Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). The band’s sixth studio recording, Love Gun was the first album to feature lead vocal performances from all four original band members, and has since gone on to sell more than four million copies.

The two-CD edition will include the complete re-mastered first album, featuring such classics as the title track, “Plaster Caster,” the song inspired by Cynthia Plaster Caster, the groupie famous for taking casts of rock star genitalia; “Shock Me,” written about Ace Frehley suffering an electric shock during a concert in Lakeland, Florida; “Christine Sixteen,” and “Then She Kissed Me,” the band’s cheeky, gender-switching cover of the Crystals’ 1963 hit penned by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector.

The second disc is made up of rare, never released Love Gun demos of “Plaster Caster,” “Tomorrow and Tonight” and “Much Too Soon.” The first four lines of the demo “I Know Who You Are” eventually evolved and became the song “Living In Sin” and the rest of the lyrics and music became “I Know Who You Are.” A glimpse into Paul Stanley’s creative process is demonstrated in “Love Gun (Teaching Demo)” with Stanley talking through the various chords of the song after writing the song. The next version “Love Gun (Demo)” is the complete demo performance. “Reputation,” the only previously released demo, was originally included on this year’s KISS 40 compilation.

Also included is a 1977 interview with Gene Simmons, as well as three never-available live tracks from their show at the Capitol Centre, Landover, MD from December 20, 1977, “Love Gun,” “Christine Sixteen” and “Shock Me.” The package comes with liner notes especially written by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, recently on tour with KISS.

With the culmination of the KISS 40th Anniversary Tour, KISS marks their four decades as America’s most iconic band with their first-ever residency, KISS Rocks Vegas, at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a series of nine performances, starting Wednesday, Nov. 5 through Sunday, Nov. 23, including shows on Nov. 7, 8, 12, 14, 15, 19 and 22. KISS will make waves with one of the loudest, most over-the-top, non-stop parties ever at The Joint, unleashing its signature elaborate set designs, jam-packed set list, intense pyrotechnics and much more.

From rock ‘n’ roll to fashion, always creating and inspiring, KISS recently appeared as the finale on the prime-time CBS special Fashion Rocks, live from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, with Afrojack, Duran Duran, Jennifer Lopez, Miranda Lambert, Nico + Vinz, Pitbull, Rita Ora and the Band Perry.

SNAKE EYES SEVEN “Medicine Man” – New Album Releasing On HighVolMusic

Snake Eyes Seven - yellow band logo - 2014

HighVolMusic is pleased to announce the signing of the Canadian Heavy Metal band Snake Eyes Seven. Snake Eyes Seven is currently recording their latest effort Medicine Man with producer Cam McLeod (White Wolf) at the Wolfsden (pic below) in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Medicine Man marks the bands 3rd release with label president Bill Chavis. Both Snake Eyes Seven (2007) and 13 Crows (2010) were released with Bill. “I am very happy to have Cole and company back on-board. Cole and I developed a great friendship from day one. He is a great person and loyal friend to the end, not to mention a prolific riff master and writer. We have worked together for so long it just seems logical for me to be involved with the next Snake Eyes Seven chapter. Cole called and said will you do this, I said when do we start? I discovered Cole and his band years ago but actually turned him down the first few times. It was only after Cole’s non-stop perseverance that I caved in. The first release was OK but 13 Crows was outstanding. I don’t think it caught on but it was a great release. Medicine Man proves to be the best Snake Eyes Seven release yet and judging by the demo material, it will be a game changer.



Snake Eyes Seven now features Cole ‘The Madman’ Stevens – guitar, Cam McLeod – guitar, Danny Deane – vocals, Mike Cillis – bass, and Erik Young – drums.

Snake Eyes Seven recently launched their Facebook page with a new website to follow in the coming days. More details on Medicine Man including soundbytes and other information will be revealed soon.

Kaine - promo band pic - 2014 - #03209

KAINE are pleased to announce that they have been chosen to open for Savage Messiah on the 21st of November at the Portland Arms Cambridge.

The band was given the support slot after being chosen by fans in a poll that was run by the promoter, Millerton Events Cambridge. Kaine won over half the votes despite competing against 11 other bands for the slot.

Band founder Rage Sadler said:

“Many of our fans have requested we play with Savage Messiah for a long time, seeing that we are two revival bands with styles that complement each other well. We are extremely lucky to have been given this rare opportunity to actually do this gig by our fans. Savage Messiah are on a big label and its not very easy to work with one another, so we are very excited about being able to finally do this. We will be playing a number of our older thrash songs at the show which makes this gig even more special for the band. It will also be fun to catch up with Mira (Savage Messiah, bass) who we befriended while he was playing in Monument. This will definitely be a gig not to miss.”

For more information on the show, please visit the event page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/721922324539778/

In further news, the band’s critically acclaimed album The Waystone will be released on vinyl and CD in North American on October 14th 2014 via Static Tension Records.
