Former KISS Guitarist Ace Frehley Announces New Solo Album ‘Space Invader’
It's a good year to be Ace Frehley! Not only is the legendary KISS guitarist about to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but he also has his first solo album in five years about to hit shelves. Frehley has announced that his latest disc, 'Space Invader,' will be released June 24 via eOne Music.
Fans can look forward to nine original new cuts, plus Ace is taking on the Steve Miller Band classic, 'The Joker.' This will be Frehley's first release as part of his new record deal with eOne.
The rocker stated, "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!”
