Disappointed at Industry, KISS Not Writing New Album


Gene Simmons


KISS's frontman, Gene Simmons claimed that the technology that allows file sharing has killed the music business and that will make KISS not releasing any new material.

Despite mapping out extensive tour for May and June this year, KISS have thrown away the idea of showcasing a new material on stage. Frontman Gene Simmons have confirmed that there will be no new album from the rock band because he was disappointed at today's industry.

"There's no new Kiss material because there's no record industry," Simmons said. "Any band who tries to do new material is trying to climb a slippery mountain. Every day record companies are folding. It'd be nice to have new Kiss songs, but what's the business model? Do you just put songs on the Internet for free? Then what?”

The singer who is also a reality TV actor, also blamed file sharing sites for killing the industry with its illegal download and predicted that the musicians will eventually go out of business. "Every day college kids who probably love music more than anybody are the same people slashing the record industry's throat by file sharing and downloading. It's the saddest thing for new bands," he said.

"Doesn't affect me or Kiss. We can continue to play stadiums and do very well, and we release DVDs. But there isn't a chance for a new band to become the next Beatles or Kiss because there isn't the infrastructure to do it."
