The veteran heavy metal group Kiss is joining a growing list of classic acts putting out new music through the world's largest retailer. Sonic Boom is due to be released in the US only at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores on October 6. The three-disc package will include a CD of the band's first new music in 11 years, rerecorded versions of famous Kiss hits and a live DVD. Paul Stanley - one of the quartet's two original members, along with Gene Simmons - said the band chose to release the album at Wal-Mart because the store allowed them to make it memorable. "They offered us an opportunity to do something that's very much in line with what we used to do with our classic albums, and that's to give people more than just an album of music," Stanley said in an interview last week. "We've always believed in trying to make an album a special event." He called the new album "bar none our best album in 30 years, if not our best album period." "Everybody worked their tails off to contribute 100 percent of their effort and their ability to make this the great Kiss that not only do the fans deserve, but we deserve," Stanley said.
