KISSguitarist/vocalistPaul Stanleypreviously stated about the band's new material, "This album, I'm telling you, everybody agrees, leaves 'Sonic Boom'in the dust." In a March 10, 2011 interview with DJJC GreenofAlfa Rock 105.7 FMandMetal Messiah Radio's"Heavy Metal Thunder"program,Gene Simmonsstated about the forthcoming CD, "The new record, which we already started working on, is gonna be the next step to'Sonic Boom'. Very similar — straight rock songs, no ballads, no keyboards, no nothing, just rock. . . A lot of the songs [have been] written by the whole band together, so no outside writers, just the band doing what it did on the first three records — writing the songs ourselves." He added, "We have almost all the songs written. In fact, we have too many songs; we have about 20 to 25 things that look and sound good."
