Kiss are currently putting the finishing touches to their 20th studio album ‘Monster’, which is due for release in January 2012. The tracklisting has yet to be formally confirmed, but songs titled ‘Hell Or Hallelujah’, ‘Born To Be A Sinner’, ‘Out Of This World’, ‘Are You Ready?’ and ‘Wall Of Sound’ are all reportedly set to feature on the album.
