KISS is about to drop a new album, their first since 2009's 'Sonic Boom'. Yesterday the band finally released the cover art for the new album 'Monster' in its entirety.

KISS played with the marketing for the new album a bit by releasing bits and pieces of the album cover at different times via their 'Monster Hunt' Facebook app. Pretty smart move if you ask me, why not make the release as dramatic as possible, it will just create more hype.

The new album is set to hit store shelves October 16th.
