I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'll welcome new music from them, no doubt, but they're catalogue is so good, they don't need to release anymore. But, if that's what the boys wanna do, more power to them. I guess I'll be hearing some new stuff next time I see them.

That is cool, especially the DVD for us West Coasters who won't get an opportunity to see them in the flesh.

 

And in regards to the new material effort, I can't fathom the band releasing anything bad. I for one hope they go WAY back and revisit the S/T Cool Kids era style...

Great news! I had been hoping they would decide on doing a new album. I'd also love to see them do something with the Thundergorund demos. There were some very good songs in that group.

You may just get an updated version of a song or two from the "Thunderground demos".... Steve wrote a bunch of those songs and Donnie didn't wanna release stuff that he didn't have a hand in writting. Some pretty good stuff on that one.

Now that the cat is out of the bag it will be interesting to see if they play any of the songs that will be on the new release when I see them a few times within the next couple months. I know Funny Money has been writting "new songs" for a couple years... I just hope that they don't use those songs for the KIX release.

I think these guys are fully capable of making a great KIX record without Donnie Purnell. What do you think Dave? Donnie pretty much wrote 95% of their songs correct? Donnie and outside writers I mean.

That's why I started its own thread. So far, no HHers have confirmed. But my brothers and I are booked.

Not sure that there is an effort by either side as far as resolving differences.

I think KIX can release something as good or better than most bands from the era that are still putting new stuff out. It might not be a "Midnight Dynamite" (my fav.) but I would bet it will sound like KIX and be a pretty strong release. I'm 100% sure it will sound like KIX.

 

As far as Donnie writting most of the songs goes... not sure that is totally true.. but Donnies name does appears by the songs in the liner notes.

What do you think the odds are that some of the new-album tracks may be polished up versions of stuff from the vaults? Y'know, like some of the songs from the "Thunderground" bootleg?

Answered that question on page one of the thread...... :whistle:

 

I think one or two might come from the "Thuderground Demo". Steve wrote a bunch of those songs so I'd say the chance is pretty good.

^^ Oh yeah. Duh. Missed that. :homer:

 

Anywhoo, I'm so stoked about this news that I just updated my HubPages article about Kix with info about the new live disc and studio album. Have a look y'all. (Yes, I'm shamelessly pimping for page views. Haha)

haven't read the news again, but is this KIX live DVD taken from the M3 festival live show recently ?

 

No .... This Live CD and DVD have been in the works for a couple of years now. The show is from a place called "Ramshead Live" in Baltimore.

I remember being there when they recorded the show... but I can't remember exactly when it was.

    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
    • Live performance  Honestly, I didn't care for this much upon first listen, but with each play I find it ear worming it's way into my skull...  Troy announced he was taking time off from touring last year, so I'm assuming that's still Steve Brown (Wild Mick Brown's brother)  on drums... Drummer Troy Luccketta to take time off the road and to be replaced by Steve Brown at Tesla shows - Sleaze Roxx
