Paul Stanley has confirmed that KISS are putting together a major new tour for 2019.

In an interview with CNBC’s Squawk Box over the weekend, Paul said the jaunt will open in January and it will be the “biggest tour” and “biggest show” of KISS’s 45-year career.

"A major KISS tour, I would say, starts at the end of January. It hasn't been announced yet," Paul said. "So, don't tell anybody. Breaking news."

Pushed for further details, Paul wouldn’t elucidate further, however he did say it will be "the biggest tour we've done, the biggest show we've done.”

KISS have five shows confirmed for this coming July taking in festivals and arenas in Spain and Portugal.

Back in February, KISS ignited speculation that their next tour could be a swansong tour after the owners of KISS’s property rights, KISS Catalog Ltd., filed an application to 'Word Mark' the phrase ‘The End of the Road’.

The application was publicly listed at The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) where it said that KISS Catalog Ltd. is looking to use the phrase for ‘Entertainment services, namely, live performances by a musical band.’

Paul Stanley, however, brushed off rumours that it spells the end for the band explaining that rather than calling it quits they were simply planning ahead.

"It's not the first trademark that's been filed," Paul said. "I thought it was a terrific name, and I was surprised nobody had used it before. I wanted to make sure that when we used it, and there will be a time that we do, I imagine — I wanted to be sure that we own it and it's ours."

KISS last played the UK in May 2017 when they took in arenas in Glasgow, Birmingham and London.
