Kiss to release solo albums box set to celebrate 40th anniversary

The four solo albums released by Kiss members in 1978 are to be reissued in a limited edition box set later this year.

There will be only 300 bundles made available worldwide, with each set containing the albums recorded by original Kiss members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss on 180g coloured vinyl – and it’s being launched to mark the 40th anniversary of their original release.

The Solo Album Collection will arrive on October 15, with pre-orders now being taken exclusively through the band’s website (opens in new tab)

In addition, the box set will contain four 12 x 12-inch posters of the album covers, along with an exclusive turntable slipmat that shows all four of artist Eraldo Carugati’s cover images. 

The bundle will also come with a limited edition t-shirt, a drinks coaster and pin badges.

Kiss will perform live on tonight’s season finale of America’s Got Talent. The hit NBC show will air at 8pm ET.
