KISS Kicks Off 45th Anniversary of ‘Destroyer’ by Dropping New Version of ‘Beth’


KISS has released an acoustic mix of the band’s well-known song, “Beth,” the first track from the upcoming  KISS – Destroyer 45th Deluxe Editions.

“Beth (Acoustic Mix)” was released in 1976. For the new acoustic mix of “Beth,” the original acoustic guitar track was taken from its analog roots and has now been restored and mixed with the original piano, vocal and synthesizer tracks.

While many bands are celebrating 50th anniversary rereleases, Kiss celebrates the 45th anniversary of  Destroyer, which was originally released in 1976. It sold a million copies in its first year.

Bob Ezrin produces.

UMe will release KISS – Destroyer 45th in the form of a Super Deluxe 4-CD + Blu-ray Audio box set as well as on standard double black vinyl and limited edition yellow and red double colored vinyl, 2-CD set, and digital. Destroyer 45th can be pre-ordered here.  It will be released on Nov. 19.

Additional tracks include “Detroit Rock City,” “Shout It Out Loud” and “God Of Thunder.”
