KISS might no longer be one of the biggest bands in the world, as they were during the ‘80’s, but it seems that they still hold quite a bit of commercial cachet and video game lovers might soon see their logo appearing in some surprising places.
Speaking to IndustryGamers, Gene Simmons, the bass player for KISS, stated, “We’re talking with Sony games now. We are really trying to take it in areas that haven’t been done before and have stayed out of the marketplace because the ideas simply weren’t exciting enough.
“So while the gaming world is waiting for the KISS games that are going to explode, we’re busy taking the brand to places where no band has gone before.”
He added, “We’re talking with Angry Birds, KISS and Angry Birds, which will become a deal. It’s just endless what we can do, but we only do things when it’s right. Just because there are games, and just because there’s this or that out there, unless the deal is right and unless the content is exciting to our fans, we don’t do it.”
The musician did not said exactly how KISS would be integrated into the Rovio developer Angry Birds
, but the members of the band might take the place of the pigs that serve as antagonists.
The deal with Sony might be linked to creating a space for KISS in the Home social space, but there’s also a possibility that the band might create music for an upcoming title from the publisher.
KISS has roared back into action during 2008 and they have just completed the recording process for a new album, called Monster, which is currently set to be launched during the summer of this year, with 15 new songs.
They also have plans to embark on a world tour late in the year, and some cross promotion with Sony and Angry Birds cannot hurt.
