Ace Frehley confirms solo album

Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has confirmed the release of his first solo album in five years.

Space Invader will be launched via eOne Music on June 23, featuring bassist Chris Wyse (The Cult) and drummer Matt Starr (Burning Rain).

Frehley says: “Life on Earth has been good to me. 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 success where others would have failed. The best is yet to come.”

The follow-up to 2009′s Anomaly includes nine original tracks plus a cover of Steve Miller’s The Joker.

Kiss, who have been embroiled in controversy since the announcement of their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year, are the cover stars of the latest edition of Classic Rock, on sale now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
