KISS' new album, "Sonic Boom", entered The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 2. This marked the band's highest-charting LP ever.

KISS has notched eight Top 10 albums, according to Billboard.com. Its previous highest-charting set was 1998's "Psycho Circus", which debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 110,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group's other high-charting sets include 1975's "Alive!" (No. 9), 1977's "Love Gun" (No. 4) and 1992's "Revenge" (No. 6).

"Sonic Boom" was released in Europe on October 5 via Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records. The CD was made available in the U.S. and Canada on October 6 exclusively via Wal-Mart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations.

KISS will bring its new "Sonic Boom Over Europe: From the Beginning To the Boom" tour to Europe in summer 2010.

"Sonic Boom Over Europe: From The Beginning To The Boom" will see dates in Ireland, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Demark, Holland, France, Spain, Belgium and, not only will the tour feature KISS's first U.K. arena shows in 11 years, but it will see the band breaking new ground completely with their first-ever shows in Slovakia.

Acclaim for KISS on their current spectacular "KISS Alive 35" North American tour has been universal. Metal Hammer hailed the "Return Of The Kings!" Mojo declared: "A KISS show is as thrilling and bombastic now as it was in 1975."
