Original Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley will release “Space Invader“, his first new solo album in five years, via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on June 24. The album will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker“. This album is the first release under Frehley‘s new universal deal on eOne Music.
Frehley has released an official statement surrounding the exciting news: “Life on Earth has been very good to me, and the body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time. Today I see no obstacles before me and my creativity has never been more fine tuned. Growing up in an Alien world has enhanced my senses and allowed me to succeed where others would have failed. The best is yet to come!“
Ace Frehley will participate in the 2014 Revolver Golden Gods awards show by presenting the Dimebag Darrell “Best Guitarist” award alongside labelmate Zakk Wylde. The awards show will take place on April 23 at the Club Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
Says Frehley: “It’s exciting to finally be part of the Golden Gods, awards and an honor to be part of any Dimebag memorial award. He was a friend, and I know everyone misses him, as do I.“
Frehley recently spent time in the studio with drummer Matt Starr and bassist Chris Wyse working on Ace‘s new CD.
Frehley‘s last album, “Anomaly“, was made available as a 2-LP vinyl set featuring two new limited-edition colors on October 1 via Brookvale Records. Only 750 units of each color were manufactured.
Frehley told Billboard.com in a 2009 interview that he intended “Anomaly” to “kind of pick up where I left off with my first solo album” — 1978’s “Ace Frehley“.
“Prior to going into the studio, I listened to that first album, which everybody cites as their favorite Ace record,” Frehley said. “I dissected it and tried to get into the same mind set this time around. I think I recaptured some of the musical textures and attitude and vibe that I had on that first record.“
“Anomaly” was recorded at Schoolhouse Studios in New York and at Ace‘s home studio in Westchester, New York.
