KISS is set to release another official bootleg from their ‘Off The Soundboard’ series – capturing a rare moment in the band’s long career.

The show is the only known recording of the band performing with short-lived guitarist Mark St. John – recorded Nov. 28th, 1984 in Poughkeepsie, NY during the Animalize tour. Here is the tracklist:

1. “Detroit Rock City”
2. “Cold Gin”
3. “Creatures of the Night”
4. “Fits Like a Glove”
5. “Heaven’s on Fire”
6. Guitar Solo
7. “Under the Gun”
8. “War Machine”
9. Drum Solo
10. “Young and Wasted” (incomplete)
11. Bass Solo
12. “I Love it Loud”
13. “I Still Love You”
14. “Love Gun”
15. “Black Diamond”
16. “Oh! Susanna”
17. “Lick it Up”
18. “Rock and Roll All Nite” (incomplete)

St. John’s tenure with the band lasted less than a year, and health issues kept him from playing live for all but a couple of shows.  He died in 2007 at the age of 51.

The 18-track album will be released April 7th exclusively through the KISS online store.
