KISS co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are teaming up to write a memoir on their iconic band.

Titled after a song off their first album, 'Nothin' to Lose' will tell the story of the group's formation in the early '70s. It Books publisher editor Denise Oswald says, "KISS is one of the most beloved and influential hard rock bands of the last 40 years. What is particularly fascinating about this project is about how the band got off the ground, how they came up with the concept of who they were that so defined them and captured the love and imagination of all of their fans.

"It's also an amazing depiction of New York in the early seventies... you have members of The Ramones, members of Blue Oyster Cult, touring with and playing with Kiss. You really get this incredible portrait of a time." The book will also feature interviews with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.

The memoir is scheduled to hit stores in the summer of 2012 via It Books [Harper Collins].
