KISS secures 125 licensing partners worldwide

‘Our decades of record-breaking merchandising success is rooted in our motivation to give our fans what they want,’ says KISS’ Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.

As KISS gears up for its 2017 European tour, the band has expanded its global licensing programme with additional new partners.

New licensees with worldwide rights include Dynamite Entertainment for comic books and graphic novels, Swyft Media for virtual goods including emojis, stickers, frames, overlays, themes, wallpapers and avatars, Staramba for 3D printed figurines and more.

Elsewhere, Pangea Brands LLC will bring waffle makers, toasters and popcorn makers to North America, alongside S&B Entertainment who will launch branded vending and crane machines.

“We have always believed that to be successful, in life and in music, you’ve got to keep moving forward. No one wins standing still and we have always refused to live within the limitations of others,” said Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, co-founders of KISS.

“Our decades of record-breaking merchandising success is rooted in our motivation to give our fans what they want. Dell and his team at Epic Rights are always on the lookout for what’s new, what’s trending, and how KISS can be a part of it.”
