The day after their shed show with MÖTLEY CRÜE in Toronto (September 14th), all four dudes in KISS threw a small Friday afternoon get-together for their label, Universal, to celebrate the imminent release of their HEAVY new album, Monster.
In attendance were mostly folks from the label, plus radio personalities from around town as well as a few invitees at the behest of the label. Food, drinks, a chance to get a picture with the guys, autographs, chit-chat... it was a well run soiree, 4:00 to 6:00 at the newly constructed Noble Studios on a dark and rainy day in west-end Toronto.
Apparently the meet-and-greet was a hastily assembled affair, but all went without a plan. There were album flats of the new album cover on hand plus a handful of silver sharpies which were put to use as the band milled about after the talk. A powerful set of studio monitors blasted a selection of new songs plus many catalogue favourites. A few beers all ‘round, some industry gossip... and then in came the guys to a round of applause, to the front of the studio, to two mics and repeated snaps of the official photographers documenting the event.
