Video footage of KISS performing the song "Detroit Rock City" last night (Saturday, July 18) at Halifax Commons in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada can be viewed below.Read a review of the concert from TheChronicleHerald.ca. KISS is tentatively scheduled to release its new album in early October. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Russian Roulette", "Modern Day Delilah" and "Stand". Lead guitarist Tommy Thayer wrote and sang his first song on the album, while drummer Eric Singer also got his first opportunity to sing a lead vocal on an original song. KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons recently told The Canadian Press that there were no outside writers working on the Paul Stanley-produced disc. He also described the album's sound as "no strings, no keyboards, no synths, no tambourines, no nothing — just meat and potatoes." Simmons confirmed that a deal is in the works with Wal-Mart that will result in an "entire section" of the giant retailer's stores across the country (apparently dubbed "Kiss Korner") being dedicated to KISS. There has been no official announcement of a KISS deal with Wal-Mart for the band's next CD, although artists such as THE EAGLES and AC/DC have both issued recent albums exclusively through the giant retailer. In addition, AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry may have inadvertently let it slip that the band's next studio album will come out exclusively through Wal-Mart.
