ACE FREHLEY’S 'Anomaly' To Be Reissued As 'Anomaly Deluxe' On September 8

Artist: 
Friday, September 8, 2017
Categories: 
 
ALL NEW BONUS TRACK "HARD FOR ME" DEBUTED VIA ULTIMATECLASSICROCK.COM
 
FREHLEY WORKING ON NEW STUDIO ALBUM, INCLUDING COLLABORATIONS WITH GENE SIMMONS
 
INTERNATIONAL TOUR DATES HAPPENING NOW
 
Founding KISS guitarist, solo artist, and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ace Frehley has premiered an all new bonus track titled "Hard For Me" today exclusively via ULTIMATECLASSICROCK.COM. The track will appear on a reissue of his 2009 album Anomaly re-released as Anomaly Deluxe coming out on September 8, 2017 via Entertainment One Music.
 
“I think this new edition of the album is great - a special treat for the fans,” says Frehley.  "And, with the bonus tracks, they’ll get a little more insight into how the album came together.”
 
Among the new tracks are two previously unreleased demos: “Hard for Me,” which was later reworked into the album’s “Foxy and Free,” and an early take of “Pain in The Neck,” different in tempo and arrangement from the final version. Also included is the previously digital-only Anomaly bonus track “The Return of Space Bear.”
 
Anomaly Deluxe will also feature enhanced album art, a new live poster, and extensive liner notes by rock writer and Ace Frehley historian, Ron Albanese (including track by track commentary by Frehley). Pre order options can be seen below.
 
In late 2016 the company entered into an extended agreement with Frehley to release two more studio albums.
 
Vice President of Sales and Acquisitions at eOne Ken Gullic says, “We’re absolutely thrilled to have an artist of Ace’s stature on our roster, and to re-release this album on eOne. The Anomaly Deluxe edition completes the trifecta of his comeback trilogy, alongside his first Top 10 album, Space Invader, as well as Origins Vol.1.  Ace will follow this with two more studio albums.”
 
At the time of its release, Anomaly lived up to its name. “There was a lot of pressure on me, because I hadn’t done an album in 20 years,” explains Frehley. “I wasn’t sure it wasn’t going to be well-received. Luckily, it was!” The record debuted at #27 on the U.S. Billboard chart.
 
Between live shows in the United States, Frehley is writing for his next album, and reveals that sessions have included working with Gene Simmons for an expected 2018 release. 
 
“I am writing for my next studio album,” he begins, “Gene came over my house to write - it went fantastic. In a matter of three hours, he and I came up with two new songs for my (next) record. I’m thrilled.” The occasion was momentous for another reason: “it was the first time I have worked with him while I was sober,” he reveals, “and it was a pleasure.”
 
In September Frehley and his band will return to Australia and New Zealand for a series of dates with Alice Cooper. 
 
“I have not been to Australia in a while,” he begins, “Alice and I have been friends since the ’70s, and playing with him is going to be bigger and better.”
 
Speaking of playing, there is a rumor that a certain song will be performed on the tour by Frehley, one that goes back to being a fan favorite Down Under when he first toured there with KISS in 1980. The original “Spaceman” sets the record straight.
 
“I gotta do ‘Talk to Me’ - for Australia, I’ll do it!”

One On One With Mitch Lafon - ACE FREHELY

ACE FREHLEY joins Mitch on episode 204 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

Link to Episode: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-204-ace-frehley-march-2

In the episode's only interview, former KISS guitarist discusses his latest album Origins Vol. 1, working with Paul Stanley, his upcoming 2016 tour plans, the 40th anniversary of KISS' landmark Destroyer album, the 20th anniversary of the pre-reunion MTV Unplugged album, Psycho Circus, the reunion tour and much more.

Quotes from the ACE FREHLEY interview:

Getting Paul Stanley on the album: "It was actually rather easy. I called Paul and he picked up the phone right away. I told him what I was doing and he was very receptive."

"I had originally tried to get Gene on the record, but he never got back to me."

On working with KISS again: "I'm not ruling it out. I always leave the door open. Right now, I'm just very excited about Fire And Water. Paul's really happy with the way it turned out. I'm very happy. So, we're just moving forward in a positive way and whatever happens in the future happens or if it doesn't - it doesn't."

The 1996 KISS - MTV Unplugged album: "It was a little nerve-racking. We weren't sure how the fans were going to receive it, but when we taped the show; the fans just went crazy when me and Peter walked out. It was just one of those moments in time where everything solidified."

"Paul and Gene realized that they had to move forward with me and Peter because the fans wouldn't have it any other way."

The Reunion Tour: "It was a lot of fun in the beginning, but as the years progressed it got a little weird."

"Paul and Gene know how to push my buttons and Peter's buttons."

The supposed reunion album, Psycho Circus: "I felt it would have been a better album if me and Peter had played more on it."

ALL STAR LINE UP OF GUESTS + TRACKLIST ANNOUNCED
OUT APRIL 15, 2016
 
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer ACE FREHLEY has announced Origins Vol. 1, a covers album featuring some of the biggest names in rock and roll, on April 15, 2016 through SPV/Steamhammer in Europe, available as digipak, 2LP and download. Most notably, KISS frontman PAUL STANLEY joins Ace on Free's hit "Fire and Water." This collaboration marks the first time that Ace and Paul appear on the same recording since KISS' 1998 reunion album Psycho Circus.
 
Other guests are none other than Slash trading leads on Thin Lizzy's classic "Emerald," Lita Ford singing and playing lead on The Troggs' staple "Wild Thing," Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 playing guitar on the KISS song "Parasite" and Jimi Hendrix' "Spanish Castle Magic," and Pearl Jam's Mike McCreedy plays guitar on Ace's mainstay "Cold Gin."

Origins Vol. 1 will be the follow up to Space Invader, released in 2014. Space Invader was Frehley's first studio album in five years, and the album charted all over Europe.
 
Space Invader, received high praise from critics. Rolling Stone wrote, "Gene Simmons has claimed Ace Frehley doesn't deserve to wear Kiss' Kabuki clown paint, but the former Spaceman's first solo LP in five years says otherwise," while Associated Press hailed, "The original Kiss lead guitarist has recorded his best solo album since his groundbreaking self-titled album in 1978." Paste Magazine also confirmed, "Space Invader is a good rock album, and it’s an even better guitar record."

The Radio Sun record Roxus song on new Spaceman EP

Aussie melodic rockers have just released an ep/cd titled Spaceman which contains songs that will not be featured on the upcoming second full length album.
 
Vocalist Jason goes on to say that songs like 'Spaceman' and 'Never Knock A Believer' were fun projects, stylistically a bit different for the band but heavy rock nonetheless, yet with the interest they created we thought we'd make them available on hard copy cd".
Guitarist Stevie goes onto say that "the Roxus 'Body Heat' track was recorded as a 'tip of the hat' to a band we all grew up with. Roxus were Australia's best and they should have been bigger".
 
The Radio Sun 4 song ep can be purchased at the following link for $10 US dollars with free shipping world wide: http://theradiosun.com/spaceman-ep-pre-orders-available-now/ The Radio Sun second full length album is currently being mixed by Paul Laine and is scheduled for a mid 2015 release.

Three Sides Of The Coin - ACE FREHLEY Album Review

Artist: 
Thursday, July 31, 2014
Categories: 
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5L9rso2234

Episode 86, July 29, 2014. Ace Frehley's new album Space Invader landed in our inboxes so this week we do a track by track review. Our first impressions of our first listen. We discuss what is outstanding, what misses the mark and rate the album on a scale of 1 to 10. Mark Cicchini this week catches up with his Music from the Elder part one collectibles.

Since launching a year ago Three Sides of the Coin has been viewed or listened to over 500,000 times. In the last year, Three Sides of the Coin has been joined by special guests including former KISS lead guitarist Bruce Kulick, the Black Veil Brides' Andy Biersack, Frank Munoz associate producer for Ace Frehley's Anomaly album, award winning songwriter Adam Mitchell, Ed Kanon (Peter Criss' drum tech), and Kevin Valentine (drummer on KISS' Psycho Circus album). Three Sides of the Coin was recently picked (October 2013) as a 'What's Hot' podcast by Apple's iTunes.

ACE FREHLEY REUNITES WITH KEN KELLY FOR 'SPACE INVADER' COVER ART

ACE FREHLEY REUNITES WITH KEN KELLY FOR 'SPACE INVADER' COVER ART
 

Founding KISS guitarist and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Ace Frehley has tapped long time friend and artist Ken Kelly to create the album cover for his upcoming LP SPACE INVADER, due out July 7th. Kelly, who created the iconic cover art for two of KISS's best selling LPS, Destroyer (1976) and Love Gun (1977), says,  "It was very exciting when I was approached with the idea of doing an album cover for Ace."

 

Ken Kelly is also widely known for his paintings in the sword and sorcery and heroic fantasy sub genres, most notably for the Conan the Barbarian novels. He continues, "I had spoken to Ace on a few occasions about the possibility, so I was delighted when it actually happened."

Ace Frehley himself comments, 'I've been talking with Ken Kelly since 2007 about painting a CD Cover for me and it has finally happened! I couldn't be more excited about the new Space Invader cover and the music behind it is also going to rock your world!'

With nearly 35 years between projects, KISS fans will surely be excited about this long-time duo working together again. Kelly concludes, "I am very pleased with the results and proud to play a part of Ace's continuing successful career!"

 

ACE FREHLEY will release SPACE INVADER, his first new solo album in five years, via SPV/Steamhammer in Europe on July 7th, 2014. The album will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller's 'The Joker.' 

Widely known as the original 'Space Ace" and founding guitarist for 16 cumulative years (over 2 tenures) of the multi platinum selling rock band KISS, Frehley is demonstrably the most popular original member.  In addition to having the best selling solo album career (vintage or current) among the original foursome, Frehley's self titled Ace Frehley, released in 1978, went on to sell over one million copies, producing the only Top 40 single, 'New York Groove,' from any of the legendary KISS solo albums; (peaking at #13).   The massive hit was most recently featured in an episode of cult show Entourage and was also KISS' second best selling download in 2012, besting such KISS Army anthems as 'I Was Made For Lovin' You,' 'Beth' and 'Calling Dr. Love' even after 36 years.
 
Since departing from KISS, Frehley went on to release four more solo albums and one live EP including his most recent effort, Anomaly in 2009, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a welcoming response among critics. "'Anomaly' shows why many rock and metal guitarists list 'Space Ace' as a prime six-string influence," said Rolling Stone.
