Pophouse Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the music catalog, brand name and IP of rock legends KISS.

The package includes the famous face paint designs as well as trademarks of the iconic American rock band.

The Swedish entertainment and music investment firm said it acquired the artist share of the master recordings and publishing rights of KISS. The financial terms of the agreement are not being disclosed.

Pophouse said it will create new content and experiences to enrich the KISS catalog for fans.

As part of the partnership, Pophouse will create digital versions of KISS.

The project, already underway, was previewed at the final KISS show in Madison Square Garden, New York, on December 2, when the band closed the night with a rendition of “God Gave Rock And Roll To You.”

Plans for a biopic, an avatar show, and a KISS-themed experience are already in the works, according to Pophouse. The avatar show is planned to launch in 2027.

“We have always been breaking new ground in popular culture, and this partnership will ensure that we continue to do so for years to come,” said Gene Simmons, bassist and co-founder of KISS. “Because what Pophouse is doing, is breaking rules. We already have several plans in development, where the avatar show is one, a biopic another and a KISS themed experience a third. The future could not be more exciting!”.

KISS has sold more than 100 million records worldwide during their 50-year career.
