Get Posters on the Wall of Your Fave Rock Group KISS

Great song, that “In the Garage”.

Whether you’ve attained the rank of general in their O.G. Army or just know them from appearing on Family Guy, you must have been living under a rock for an awfully long time to not be at least cognizant of KISS.

I mean, they’ve only been at this for 45 years; besides having 30 Gold albums (14 of which are Platinum), as well as the currently-in-progress End of the Road world tour, KISS are almost as famous for maybe being the most marketed band ever. Lunch boxes, pj’s, heck KISS World even has a Demon waffle maker!

One superfan you don’t need to explain any of this to is Brian Steward, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of The Official KISS Poster Book. He’s just released a second edition through his Texas-based company Fantasm Media with collectors like him squarely in mind. There are six, count ’em alternate covers of members in various action shots. The “Kontents” are meant to span KISS’ incredible legacy by including interviews with individuals such as director Adam Rifkin on the 20th anniversary of Detroit Rock City and David Pea on his “Sammy the Serpent” design that’s part of Gene Simmons’ fiendish costume.

To justify its “poster book” name there are also six pullouts suitable for hanging in back-to-school dorms or framing to decorate a KISS-themed man cave. Finally, there are ten full pages of photos snapped by Steward himself from a recent End of the Road stop, which KISS is rumoured to continue on until 2021. You can probably expect a few more poster books from Mr. Steward and Fantasm Media then; get Poster Book #2 with your choice of cover here and FWIW, this is the setlist KISS has been playing since the tour began in January.

Gilles LeBlanc

Gilles LeBlanc literally fell into “alternative rock” wayyy back at Lollapalooza 1992, where he got caught in his first mosh pit watching some band named Pearl Jam. Since then, he’s spent the better part of his life looking for music to match the liberating rush he felt that day, with a particular chest-beating emphasis on stuff coming out of his native Canada. It took him awhile, but Gilles now writes feverishly about all things that rock (and or roll) through his ROCKthusiast alter ego.
