Kiss have announced the full details, including track listing, for their upcoming new album, Monster.

The band's landmark 20th studio album will be released October 16 and contains 13 tracks, including the lead single, "Hell or Hallelujah," which can be heard below.

"There are no symphony orchestras, boy choirs, keyboards, outside producers or songwriters on this album," said bassist Gene Simmons. "The best thing we did was to turn inwards to ourselves."

The bassist was also quick to praise band members Erin Singer and Tommy Thayer for their hard work on Monster, saying "Tommy and Eric have revitalised this band with a work ethic and the talent to back it up. This is a real band effort. Kiss has become a behemoth. We're going where no bands have gone before."

Monster Track Listing:

Hell Or Hallelujah
Wall Of Sound
Freak
Back To The Stone Age
Shout Mercy
Long Way Down
Eat Your Heart Out
The Devil Is Me
Outta This World
All For The Love Of Rock & Roll
