It is expected that the legendary rock band "Kiss" might start working on their new album sometime later in 2016.
Band member Gene Simmons revealed in an interview last year that the band will start work on the new Kiss album some time in 2016.
"It will happen when we have time," Simmons said, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. "I have music in me that needs to come out. I recently wrote a song called 'Your Wish Is My Command.' It feels like a Kiss song and it just needs to be released on a [new] Kiss album."
"First we have to finish a whole slew of shows. That will take at least until the end of this year."
The bassist said that the band members are planning about the new Kiss album and that band mate Paul Stanley will play the role of producer.
"I'm glad about that-I no longer have the energy to come to the studio every day," Simmons said, according to Loudwire. "Paul doesn't have so many other things in his life that demand attention, so he can concentrate fully on the project."
While, Simmons seemed to be highly optimistic about releasing a new Kiss album for 2016, band member Stanley wants to record a new album only when no contracts requires them to do so.
"There has to be a purpose to us doing an album," the Kiss frontman told Classic Rock Magazine.
"There was a time when we did albums because the contracts said so. But I only want to work now when it's justified. Sonic Boom was an album that was very much needed to be done and Monster just felt like, 'Well, we did Sonic Boom - let's see where we go from here.'"
"Having accomplished that, I feel we can move forward without new music. There are enough things going on in KISS that right now it doesn't feel utterly necessary to make a new album."
