acefrehley400 Founding KISS guitarist and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ace Frehley has debuted an all new single titled Gimme a Feelin’ exclusively through
Rolling Stone today (May 29th). The new effort serves as the first single from his all new LP Space Invader slated for a summer release via eOne Music.

Gimme a Feelin’ is available for purchase on iTunes and Space Invader is available for pre-order via Amazon.

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.

You can catch Ace Frehley accepting his award at the 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction Ceremony on May 31st at 8pm on HBO.

    The new song is not very good! Have to hear it a few more times but right now I’m not feeling it at all

      Really? Not the catchiest of hooks, but the music is just crushing!

    It reminds me of classic Kiss. Nice riffs and some classic Ace solos. Ace was the first guy that made want to play guitar, it’s nice to still hear he still has it.

    Sounds great! I liked Anomaly a lot and expect this one to be even better. I just wish Ace would stop stealing Tommy Thayer’s riffs from the last two “Kiss” albums 🙂

    • Jimi on

      Ha good one 🙂

      Well I admit Sonic Boom Tommy used some ace riffs but Tommy plays in his own style on Monster…I’m just talking about the music…not makeup or anything. Tommy cowrote 9 of the 12 tracks on Monster. The Ace song is amazing though!

      It would not surprise me to hear some of Ace in Tommy’s leads because Ace was a big influence for him. I think some of us forget that Tommy played the part of Ace in a tribute band before becoming full time in KISS. It seems perfectly natural to me, but some prefer to accuse Tommy of ripping Ace off even though note for note, I have never heard anything that sounds like Ace Frehley’s on Sonic Boom or Monster. For the record, I like Tommy and what he is doing in KISS. However, my all time favorite is Ace–but Ace from the 74 to 82 during his original tenure in KISS.

    Sounds just fine to me! The riff has been done before but Ace and AC/DC are great at recycling riffs. Hard to believe that Ace is the man behind the mic in this song, however. I give it a 3.5/5, if I were anybody official ;P

    If you like old school 70’s vibe RnR…this is your ticket. Pretty typical Ace…it’ll definitely please his diehards.
