PEZ Candy, Inc. announced that the highly anticipated PEZ KISS gift set has begun to ship to national retailers and will soon be available on retailer shelves.

“Interest in the KISS gift tin has exceeded our expectations and we doubled our original production,” stated Joe Vittoria, CEO of PEZ Candy, Inc. “There have been several imitation KISS PEZ dispensers in the market over the years and we are pleased to launch this authentic set in time for the holiday season.”
“The KISS merchandise juggernaught continues with the PEZ KISS gift set and the Kiss Army will love them,” says Janet Dwoskin, Vice President of Live Nation Merchandise.
KILL DEVIL HILL, the new band featuring legendary drummer Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL) alongside Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) on bass, Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason “Dewey” Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals, recently wrapped up a North American tour in support of their self-titled debut album, which was released earlier this year via Steamhammer/SPV.
The band has created a series of lyric videos for all of the songs from the CD. Over the coming weeks, these clips will be premiered exclusively at RevolverMag.com, the online home of Revolver magazine. Today the first video for the song “Hangman” has been unveiled and can be seen below.
KILL DEVIL HILL will hit the road again in November, playing select headline dates and supporting legendary shock rocker Alice Cooper. This jaunt kicks off November 23 and runs through December 1.
The self-titled debut album from KILL DEVIL HILL sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 9 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Kill Devil Hill” was produced by Warren Riker, who is best known for his work with DOWN, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, SUBLIME and CATHEDRAL. The effort was made available in a standard CD edition, as an iTunes digital download, and double gatefold LP.
According to Appice, KILL DEVIL HILL‘s sound is “like a cross between BLACK SABBATH, ALICE IN CHAINS and a little bit of LED ZEPPELIN thrown in. It’s heavy, but with a lot of cool hooks and melodic overtones, too.”
The members of KILL DEVIL HILL previously stated about their songwriting and recording approach, “We are going old school meets new; no sample drums here!!”
