Kiss / Creatures Of The Night 40th Anniversary boxset has 75 unreleased gems

The Kiss cult classic fan favourite album Creatures Of The Night will be released as a 103-track 40th Anniversary boxset on 18 December 2022 via UMe.

Released in 1982, Creatures Of The Night saw the band returning to a harder rock sound. It was the last album “recorded” with Ace Frehley credited as an official member, though he did not play on the album. Frehley’s face was featured on the album cover for contractual and commercial reasons.

Initially uncredited, Vinnie Vincent handled most of the lead guitar as a session player and co-writer before being added as the full-time replacement for Frehley.

The Creatures Of The Night Super Deluxe set has 103 total tracks, with 75 tracks being unreleased.

CD 1 contains a newly remastered version of the album. CDs 2 and 3 feature 34 demos, rarities and outtakes, including unreleased gems such as Deadly Weapon (Penny Lane Demo), Not For The Innocent (Demo) and Betrayed (Outtake).

CDs 4 and 5 highlight 26 incredible soundboard live recordings from the Creatures’ 82/’83 Tour and seven super rare tour sound effects, all recorded and archived by the Creatures Tour sound engineer Harry Witz.

The Blu-ray Audio disc showcases a first-ever Atmos and 5.1 surround mix from the original album multi-tracks plus the high-resolution newly remastered 1982 stereo mix of the original album.
