Swedish old school rockers The Gloria Story holds Kiss as one of their main influences. This year marks Kiss 40th anniversary. It is also the year that Kiss finally got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Gloria Story’s song “Live your Life in Shame” is all about “life as a Kiss-fan”. It’s packed with Kiss-references and is nothing short of homage to one of the greatest rock-groups of all time. The video – filled with flames, girls, action and a lot of KISSING – is released on the same day as Kiss kicks off their 40th anniversary-tour together with Def Leppard. June 23. The “Live your Life in Shame-video” is The Gloria Story’s way of saying: “Thank you Kiss for the music during 40 years of Rock and Roll, and congratulations on the RARHOF induction”.
Note: The Gloria Story didn’t want to use the iconic, trademark KISS-makeup in the video, because it would be a little too obvious. Instead the four different girls appearing in the video wears different colour lipstick – each of them representing the theme-colour from the the original four Kiss solo-albums, and each of them representing the classic “Kiss-song girls” aka Christine, Beth, Shandi and Domino.
“Live your life in Shame” is the third single from THE GLORIA STORY’s album BORN TO LOSE (2013) – available from Sound Pollution Distribution on CD, Digital and Vinyl-LP.
The video is produced by Snowbox Studios, Petter Björnlund
