How big were Kiss in 1978? So big that their label shipped out a million copies of solo albums from all four members on the same day in September 1978. The greasepaint rockers will celebrate the 40th anniversary of that unique rock moment on Oct. 19 when the albums from singer/guitarist Paul Stanley, bassist/singer Gene Simmons, drummer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley will be collected in a lavish box set for the first time.

Casablanca/UMe will release Kiss: The Solo Albums — 40th Anniversary Collection in a limited-edition, 180-gram 4LP box set on Oct. 19; pre-orders are available here. Only 2,500 copies of the vinyl box sets will be available, with Simmons’ featuring red vinyl, Stanley’s purple, Frehley’s blue and Criss’ green, and all four packaged in a deluxe black-matte slipcase with glossy black images of each member’s face surrounded by the band’s iconic logo.
