KISS Army Worldwide: The Ultimate Fanzine Phenomenon To Coincide With Tour

In celebration of releasing Sonic Boom, their first studio album in 11 years, KISS has pushed up the release of their book KISS Army Worldwide: The Ultimate Fanzine Phenomenon to coincide with their North American tour.

KISS fans everywhere can get an inside look and visual history told through concert photos and fanzines chronicling the group from their beginnings in the 1970s right up to today. The book features previously unpublished photos, fanzine covers and other shared memorabilia from both the fans and the band.

The book also includes commentary from Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, who provide insight on topics such as the rock and roll DIY aspect of fanzines, how these fanzines contributed to the band’s evolution, as well as the band’s appreciation of their faithful fans. There are also interviews with members of the KISS Army from all over the world.
