You Might think you know all about me, but believe or not there's more ...

GENE SIMMONS The Vault promo video >>click here<<

After years of being in the spotlight with KISS, I've decided it's time to share another side with you, a more personal one. With The Vault I've created a 50-year time capsule, a soundtrack to my life, filled with songs I've written, but never have been able to share until now. That's 150 songs that I've kept tucked away, waiting for the right moment, tracks with artists like Bob Dylan, Eddie and Alex Van Halen, Joe Perry and of course, my bandmates from KISS. As an obsessive music fan and collector myself, I've packed The Vault with exclusive mementos created just for The Vault - a new action figure, an "In Gene We Trust" oversized commemorative coin, a deluxe 160-page book with dozens of unseen photos from my personal collection and track-by-tack commentary on every song included - and a one-of-a-kind gift from my very own archive.

With The Vault, I'm inviting you and guest to join me on a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I will personally hand you your very own Vault in your area and we'll take a deeper look at the unheard and unseen side of my legacy.
