Stanley tells Classic Rock magazine: “There has to be a purpose to us doing an album.
“There was a time when we did albums because the contracts said so. But I only want to work now when it’s justified.”
He continued: “‘Sonic Boom’ was an album that very much needed to be done, and ‘Monster’ just felt like, ‘Well, we did ‘Sonic Boom’ — let’s see where we go from here.’ Having accomplished that, I feel we can move forward without new music. There are enough things going on in KISS that right now it doesn’t feel utterly necessary to make a new album.”
Stanley does leave the door open to the possibility that he will change his mind. “Anything is possible,” he says. “But at the moment I don’t see it on the horizon. I’m not one to ever say ‘never.'”
