KISS And ACC Network Rock 2012 ACC Football

Legendary rockers KISS will rock ACC Network telecasts of Atlantic Coast Conference football, it was announced today by Raycom Sports. Through this partnership of rock royalty and premier college football, KISS' new hit single "Hell Or Hallelujah" will set the tone for the kickoff of each week's syndicated game.

"We are honored to have KISS open our ACC football telecasts," said David Barringer, producer for Raycom Sports. "KISS' music and college football go hand in hand. They are part of the fabric of America and American culture. Their pure, high energy music is going to be a great addition to our games."

KISS leads a star-studded list of performers featured in Raycom football and basketball telecasts over the years, including RASCAL FLATTS, BROOKS & DUNN, JASON ALDEAN, DAUGHTRY, SUGARLAND, ALISON KRAUSS, CHRIS BROWN, LIL' MAMA, T-PAIN, DAVID COOK and RICKY SKAGGS.

KISS will release its 20th studio album, "Monster", on October 16 through Universal Music Enterprises. Described in a press release as a "12-track, straight-ahead rock 'n' roll album," the CD features collaborations among all four members — including co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons and longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer — in an album that shows the band at the top of its game.

"Monster" is the group's first studio album since the band's 2009 smash success, "Sonic Boom", and was also produced by Paul Stanley with Greg Collins at Conway Studios in Hollywood, California, and The Nook in Studio City, California.
