Lots of things happening in the KISS world this week. Paul Stanley announced that he is doing a one-off show (with Eric Singer) to honor his roots. It is called Paul Stanley’s Soul Station. Keep in mind there will be no KISS songs played and all he is doing is singing, no guitar playing by him either.

There are some new members of the band for this release. Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, QOTSA), Joey Castillo (QOTSA, Danzig), Chuck Dukowski (Black Flag) and David Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, any other supergroup you can think of). You can check out the title track here
Shinedown will be releasing their new album, Threat To Survival, on September 18.

Your PSA this week is about the band Ratt. First you have singer Stephen Pearcy say he will play Ratt songs on his tour, but never with the band. Drummer Bobby Blotzer said fine, the songs are great and so I will tour as the Bobby Blotzer Ratt Experience. Then when you think it’s all said and done, bassist Juan Croucier decided he wanted to to tour but not with the others and now has his version of Ratt, called Ratt’s Juan Croucier. Now they all talk crap about each other, but I guess if you are diehard fan, you may get to see them all separately and just maybe come up with your own Ratt experience. ABut they don’t want a reunion.
Supergroup Act Of Defiance have released a new song called, Legion Of Lies. It’s from their debut album out on August 21. You can listen to it here
