2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ACE FREHLEY will release
SPACE INVADER, his first new solo album in five years, via
Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on June 24th, 2014. The album
will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover
of Steve Miller's "The Joker." This album is the first release under
Frehley's new universal deal on eOne Music.

Frehley has released an official statement surrounding the exciting news:

"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!"

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 bestselling 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.

ACE FREHLEY will participate in the 2014 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS
show by presenting the Dimebag Darrell "Best Guitarist" Award
alongside label-mate Zakk Wylde. The awards show will take place on
April 23, 2014 at the CLUB NOKIA Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets are
on sale now!

Frehley adds comment.

"It's exciting to finally be part of the Golden Gods, awards and an
honor to be part of any Dimebag memorial award. He was a friend, and
I know everyone misses him, as do I."
