ACE FREHLEY has cracked the U.S. top 10 with his latest effort Origins: Vol. 1 charting at #1 on the Billboard Hard Music Chart, #3 on the Billboard Rock chart and #6 on the Billboard Current chart selling 16k units in its first week of release according to Nielsen Soundscan. Origins: Vol.1 and its success serves as the follow up to Space Invader, which debuted at #9 on the Top 200 Chart in 2014, the same year Ace Frehley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with KISS.

 

The space Ace also confirms today, for the first time, that his all new music video for “Fire and Water” will feature his former band mate and  KISS’ co founding frontman Paul Stanley, and  will be released Wednesday, April 27th, coincidentally Frehley’s 65th birthday. A recently revealed teaser can be seen here.

 

The music video holds its place in rock and roll history as the first time in 14 years that Ace Frehley and Paul Stanley shared a stage since KISS’ appearance at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. It’s also the first time Frehley has released a music video since 1989, which was Frehley’s cover of “Do Ya” by ELO and The Move.

 

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer ACE FREHLEY released Origins Vol. 1, a collection of 12 newly recorded classics from Ace’s formative years featuring some of the biggest names in rock and roll on April 15, 2016. This collaboration marks the first time that Ace and Paul appear on the same studio recording since KISS’ 1998 reunion album Psycho Circus.

 

Ace spoke with Rolling Stone about the new record, his guest players and recording with Paul after all these years. Rolling Stone writes: Regarding his reunion with Stanley, Frehley shrugs off any residual tension between the two of them. “We’ve always been friends,” he says. “The press seems to amplify negativity. I guess it makes good copy.”

 

Rolling Stone debuted “White Room,” a few weeks ago, the classic hit originally performed by Cream. 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 alongside Ace as he sings his classic KISS composition “Parasite” for the very first time, as well as Jimi Hendrix’s “Spanish Castle Magic,” and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready also plays guitar with Ace as he finally sings his KISS “Alive!” mainstay “Cold Gin.” “White Room.”

“Twelve covers including three KISS classics and he does a solid, sometimes even tremendous job.” BLABBERMOUTH 8/10
