Kiss Reveal ‘Kissteria’ Box Set, ‘Kiss 40′ Collection Details

Kiss have revealed the impressive (and undoubtedly expensive) contents of their new ‘Kissteria’ vinyl box set, as well as the track list for their upcoming ’40′ compilation and the dates their individual vinyl album re-issues will be made available.

One of the selling points of the ’40′ collection is the inclusion of a previously unreleased demo from ’1977′ named ‘Reputation.’ A quick internet search has turned up an early version of the Gene Simmons-sung rocker, which you can check out above. Of course, it’s entirely possible the version on the actual album will be different.

You’ll find the extensive details on all three parts of this massive re-issue campaign — ostensibly in celebration of the group’s 40th anniversary — below. Be sure to study it closely, there will be a test later. The individual vinyl albums will be released in four phases, while the two-CD ’40′ collection hits stores May 27.

There is no set release date or announced price for the ‘Kissteria’ box set yet — but you can sign up to be notified when more details are ready. Considering each of the 30+ records included in the set are being sold individually for over $30 a pop, and the fact that Kiss put a $4,299 over-sized photo book on the market two years ago, we’re thinking this sucker’s gonna hit four figures easy. But hey, our savings account would be very happy if we’re wrong!
