FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
June 25, 2013
(Vancouver, BC) - Legendary rock band KISS is celebrating the release of their studio album Monster with a month-long Canadian Tour kicking off in Victoria, BC on July 5th. To coincide with their Canadian Tour dates, KISS and Live Nation Merchandise are teaming up to create KISS ARMY DEPOT Pop-Up Stores across Canada. The stores will be featured in Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton. The first store to open will be the Vancouver location (@ Tom Lee Music - 929 Granville Street) on June 28th and it will remain open until July 7th. On Thursday, July 4th, KISS will hold a press conference at the Vancouver KISS ARMY DEPOT to mark the start of their Canadian Tour (full details below).
Each KISS ARMY DEPOT Pop-Up Store will offer an array of KISS merchandise and music, including exclusive product only available in the Pop-Up Store. A portion of the proceeds from each of the Pop-Up stores will be donated to local charities. In Vancouver, the participating local charity is “Sophie’s Place” . For more information on all Canadian KISS ARMY DEPOT Pop-Up Stores, please see below.
January 2013 marked four decades since the legendary rock band KISS was born. Forty years later, having racked up 28 U.S. gold albums along with 40 million U.S. and 100 million in world sales, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, with longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, return stronger than ever. KISS released their 20th studio album, Monster, in late 2012 through Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The 12-song (plus bonus track), straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll album features collaborations from all four members in an effort that shows KISS at the top of its game!
Be sure to join KISS in Vancouver at the KISS ARMY DEPOT at 929 Granville Street (@Tom Lee Music) on Thursday, July 4th as they mark the kick-off of their Monster Canadian Tour!
