MUSIC NEWS: ACE FREHLEY TO SIT IN WITH THE ROOTS ON THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 12

2014 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley will perform on  the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon next Tuesday, August 12, 2014, sitting in with The Roots for the show's entirety.

Additionally, a one time only in-store appearance and signing at the Best Buy in Union Square, NYC will take place Tuesday August 19th at 6PM. Fans will be able to get their own copy of Space Invader signed by the space man himself.

ACE FREHLEY will release Space Invader, his first new solo album in five years, via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on August 19th. The album features nine brand new original songs, including the first single, "Gimme a Feelin'," as well as a cover of Steve Miller's classic rock staple "The Joker." Frehley also tapped long time friend and artist Ken Kelly to create the album art for Space Invader. Kelly created the iconic cover art for two of KISS's best selling LPS, Destroyer (1976) and Love Gun (1977).

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 (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. 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.
