Love gun cover

Love Gun is the sixth studio album by the American band KISS. It was certified Platinum on June 30, 1977 (the day the album released).[1]

Love Gun is notable for being the first Kiss album to feature a lead vocal performance from lead guitarist Ace Frehley. This makes Love Gun the first Kiss album to feature lead vocal performances from all four band members. It was also the last studio album to feature the entire original lineup of Kiss on every track, as drummer Peter Criss was replaced by session drummer Anton Fig for much of 1979's Dynasty.[2]

A cardboard "Love Gun" (assembly required) was included inside the album,[3] along with a Kiss merchandise order form.[4]

RIAA: 3x Platinum
