KISS celebrate Hall of Fame induction with 40th Anniversary vinyl reissues

The miracle that most KISS fans have waited on for 15 years came to fruition this month as the legendary band were finally inducted into the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Amid all the turmoil and drama surrounding the long overdue honor, what seemed to be most overlooked is the music. While critics were busy tearing the band down for its massive imagery, they missed the simple and powerful rock and roll KISS gave to its fans. With or without make-up, KISS has built a catalog of enduring rock music that is still played on radio stations across the globe every minute of every day—and fans continue to rock and roll all night and party every day.

In honor of their 40th anniversary these rock and roll giants are celebrating in true KISS fashion. The band plan to make 2014 the biggest and loudest, non-stop rock and roll party of the century. To memorialize their incredible 40-year recording career and their long-overdue induction to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) kicked off the celebration on April 1, 2014 with the first batch of 10 individual KISS remastered albums on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl with 18 more vinyl titles coming through the first half of 2014.

On May 27, fans can look forward to a 2-CD “KISS 40” compilation with one track from every major album release, live selections and an unreleased demo from 1977. And finally, starting this week, the definitive KISS vinyl box set, “Kissteria – The Ultimate Vinyl Road Case”, featuring 34 Kiss LPs - including titles never-before issued on vinyl, six exclusive albums to the box set and a plethora of collectibles only available in “Kissteria” will be available exclusively for D2C pre-order at www.kissteria.kissonline.com
