KISS Wine and Spirits Coming Soon?

Fans of the band Kiss may be able to enjoy KISS-branded spirits or wine soon. On December 11, Kiss Catalog, Ltd. filed two federal trademark applications for the design marks shown below. I am assuming Kiss Catalog, Ltd. is the legal entity holding the band's intellectual property given the 119 other trademark applications filed by the entity in the past.
These applications do not relate to music, however (the band owns other registrations for music services). These particular applications list "distilled spirits" or "distilled spirits; wines" in Class 33 as the related goods. Kiss Catalog filed both applications on an intent-to-use basis, which means the band is not using these marks in conjunction with distilled spirits or wine yet but does have a bona fide intention to do so in the near future. In other words, a KISS-branded spirit and/or wine may be hitting liquor stores near you soon.
