KISS: New 'Kissology Vol. 2' Clip Available

Footage of KISS performing the song "Cold Gin" on November 22, 1980 Sydney, Australia — taken from the upcoming "Kissology - The Ultimate Kiss Collection Vol. 2 1978 - 1991" DVD box set — has been posted on YouTube. Watch it below.

VH1 Classic has posted no less than 12 tracks from the November 22, 1980 concert in Sydney, Australia at this location. The entire concert is included on "Kissology - The Ultimate Kiss Collection Vol. 2 1978 - 1991", which will be released on August 14. It is the follow-up to KISS' DVD box set, "Kissology: Volume One, 1974-1977".

Guitarist Tommy Thayer, who took over Ace Frehley's role in the band, told, "It's fantastic that Volume One of 'Kissology' has done huge numbers, but does it surprise me? No, not at all. This is KISS in its early raw form, four guys with the hunger and fire, aspiring to take on the world. All this great footage is finally available and it's exciting."

Featured on Disc One is a 1978 news special on KISS, a 1979 interview with Tom Snyder, and the European theatrical version of the TV movie, "Kiss Meets The Phantom of the Park" (titled "Kiss in Attack of the Phantoms").

Disc Two includes promotional videos, the late Eric Carr — who replaced Peter Criss in 1980 — performing at an Australian concert, and live renditions of material from the very un-KISS-like "(Music From) The Elder" among other item.

Disc Three examines KISS' comeback in June 1983 at one of their last shows in makeup, in Rio de Janeiro, plus their unmasking on MTV and some performance footage from the "Lick It Up" and "Crazy Nights" tours, along with a complete 1990 Detroit show.
