Watch Ace Frehley on a Mission To Mars in new animated video

Ace Frehley has released an animated video for his new single Mission To Mars.

It’s the latest track taken from the former Kiss guitarist’s studio album Spaceman, which launched in October last year through Entertainment One. Ace previously shared Bronx Boy and Rockin’ With The Boys from the record.

The Mission To Mars video was animated by artist Christopher Fequiere and is “full of Kiss fandom easter eggs.”

Along with all the guitar parts on Spaceman, Frehley also played bass on all but two of the tracks – enlisting his old Kiss bandmate Gene Simmons for Without You I’m Nothing and Your Wish Is My Command.

Explaining the collaboration, Ace told Eddie Trunk: “I just shot him an e-mail and said, ‘C’mon, let’s write some songs together for my new record.’ Next thing you know, he’s down here and within three hours we had written two songs together, which was a record for me and him."

Ace will head out for further live dates in support of Spaceman across the US this summer. Find a full list of dates below.
