Band enter the studio to start work on their 20th release

Kiss entered the studio on March 15 to begin work on their 20th studio album.

As previously reported, the classic rockers are now recording the follow-up to their 2009 effort ‘Sonic Boom’, the band’s highest-ever charting album.

Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons updated fans through Twitter.com/genesimmons stating: “Went into the studio today for day one of the new album. We’ve got some rockin’ stuff!”

Meanwhile, Kiss guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley has been posting video updates from the band over at Kissonline.com.

“History will be made,” says Stanley in one post. “This album, I’m telling you, everybody agrees, leaves ‘Sonic Boom’ in the dust. So this is awesome, and you’ll be hearing it soon.”

Simmons has also reported to reveal that: “The new record is gonna be the next step to ‘Sonic Boom’. Straight rock songs, no ballads, no keyboards, no nothing, just rock!”
