Ace Frehley Books ‘Tonight Show’ Appearance
Ace Frehley is making the promotional rounds for his new album ‘Space Invader,’ and on Aug. 12, his travels will take him to New York City, where he’ll sit in with the Roots during an episode of ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’
On Aug. 19, one week after his ‘Tonight Show’ taping, Frehley’s new LP is scheduled to arrive in stores. He’ll celebrate by making an in-store appearance at the Best Buy in NYC’s Union Square, where according to a press release, starting at 6:00PM, “fans will be able to get their own copy of ‘Space Invader’ signed by the space man himself.”
Frehley’s first new solo album in five years, ‘Space Invader’ features nine new originals (including first single ‘Gimme a Feelin’‘) as well as a cover of the Steve Miller Band hit ‘The Joker.’ Promising that the new material is “heavier” than the songs on his last release, 2009’s ‘Anomaly,’ the former Kiss guitarist insists he’s singing and playing better than he has in years.
“I’m writing great songs and I’m singing great, and I’m super excited about this new album,” Frehley enthused in a recent interview. “I played some tracks for a couple of guys I was considering using for mixing, and the first thing out of their mouths was, ‘God, your voice sounds like it did on your 1978 solo record.’ Unlike some other people, whose voices aren’t maybe what they used to be. Not to name names, or anything.”
