“On tour w/Monique & Lara…In regard to what happened in Houston TX…Our prayers 🙏 go out to all the families who lost loved ones at the concert!…Seems like it was a “Satanic Ritual” gone very wrong! They’ll Be Hell To Pay!!! For everyone who let those kids die! 😤✝️💟☯️☮️✡️🕎☪️…All people of every faith & religion should band together to stop this from ever happening again in America 🇺🇸…God Bless!!!💖🙏”

Ace Frehley Plans To Begin Recording New Album “After The New Year”

During a recent interview with Talking Metal Live, Ace Frehley (ex-KISS) offered an update on his next studio album. The musician says he is planning to start the recording process for the effort “after the new year.”

Frehley said the following while discussing his new full-fledged recording studio at his house in New Jersey:

“It’s not the first studio I’ve ever built. If you remember, in the ’70s, when I lived in Connecticut, I spent $800,000 building a studio underground next to my home. But studios are nothing new to me, and I design ’em wherever I go; wherever I live, I always have a place to work. But the new place I’m in now has a 3,000-square-foot basement, so I’ve got plenty of room. So I made a large control room and I just was finishing up the drum room today. And after the New Year, I’m gonna start recording my new album, right in the basement. The beauty of it is because of this virus, everybody’s supposed to stay home. Well, I don’t have a problem staying home now, because I work from my house anyway.”

He continued when asked if he has already been writing music for the new record:

“I’ve been writing all along. Plus, I have tracks that I’ve already recorded that I have to revisit and decide whether they have a chance to make it on my new studio record — [if they] have to be rewritten or [they’re] just good the way they are. And I’ve got people sending me song ideas constantly… So, little by little, it’s an ongoing process, and it evolves as it goes.”

“Everyone was telling me, ‘You gotta do a Beatles song, Ace. You didn’t do one on the first record.’ The early Beatles inspired me more than the later records, because they were more raw and more rock and roll. I decided to tackle ‘I’m Down’ and I thought it came out great. John 5 did a great solo on the song, and then we riffed out at the end.”
