Ace Frehley (ex-KISS) recently released a new song titled “Bronx Boy,” and now he has confirmed that his new album will be called “Spaceman.” He told the audience the following about that during the Indianapolis KISS Fan Expo over the weekend: “[The] new album should be out in a couple of months. It’s gonna be called ‘Spaceman’.” He also added that his former bandmate, Gene Simmons suggested the title at one of the “Vault Experience” events:
“I said to the audience, ‘What about calling my new album ‘Forty Years Later’, because it’s been forty years since my first solo record — 1978. And Gene goes, ‘No. You should call it ‘Spaceman’.’ So I figured I’d go with it. That’s a nice sound bite. Someone says, ‘How come it’s called ‘Spaceman’?’ I go, ‘Gene Simmons wanted me [to call it that].'”
Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley joined his former bandmate Gene Simmons once again at Simmons’ Vault Experience Event at Walter Grace Vintage Guitars in Miami, FL. You can see footage of the two performing and having a good time below. If you don’t want to watch the Q&A, skip to about the 41-minute mark to see their performance.
