KISS recently shared an unreleased demo, “Rock N’ Rolls Royce,” from the 45th anniversary reissues of their fourth studio album, Destroyer.
The Gene Simmons song failed to make the cut of the original Destroyer album that came out in 1976, but a reworked version that came out as “Love ‘Em And Leave ‘Em” eight months later featured on the band’s fifth album, Rock And Roll Over.
The “45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition” of Destroyer, is out as a 4CD + Blu-ray Audio box set that includes a newly-rematsered version of the original album, a disc containing 15 demos (including nine unreleased demos) from Paul Stanley‘s and Simmons’ personal archives, a few studio outakes, and alternate versions/mixes and single edits.
The deluxe version also contains a live performance from the L’Olympia in Paris, France, as well as 2 bonus tracks.
The box set also features a 68-page hardcover book with extensive liner notes by Paul Elliott and Ken Sharp featuring interviews with band members, then-manager Bill Aucoin, and album producer Bob Ezrin, as well as an extensive collection of KISS memorabilia from the era, including a complete recreation of the original KISS Army Kit with the original folder and other memorabilia.
The 2021 reissue series is also available in a Deluxe Edition 2CD package, and a 2LP set on standard double black vinyl and limited edition yellow and red double colored vinyl, as well as digital formats.
