KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley confirms the house band from CBS's "Rock Star" will back him on his "Live to Win" solo tour.

The group is made up of Paul Mirkovich on keyboard, Jim McGorman on guitar, Rafael Moreira on lead guitar, Nate Morton on drums and Sasha Krivstov on bass, the Roadrunner Records Web Site reports.

"From the first time I saw them perform, I knew they were the band that could help deliver the songs for my solo tour with lethal force," Stanley said. "Trust me, this is going to be awesome!"

"Live to Win" is scheduled for an Oct. 24 release by New Door Records/Universal Musical Enterprises.

While Stanley wrote the single "Loving You Without You Now" himself, the rest of the album had help from former KISS songwriting partners Desmond Child and Holly Knight.
