Ace Frehley confirms covers LP; adds more shows to upcoming tour (updated dates)


Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has set April 15th as the official street date for his new covers album, Origins Vol. 1, through eOne Music. The 12-track effort will see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer take on hits from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Thin Lizzy with the help from an all star lineup of guests such as Slash, Lita Ford and Paul Stanley (marking their first studio recording together in 18 years). A new track in the form of a cover of Cream‘s “White Room” recently premiered via Rolling Stone, and can be streamed below.

Additionally, Ace Frehley will soon set out on a 3-week-long U.S. tour with two previously announced shows in NYC at B.B. King on April 11 and April 12 [tix on-sale now]. More dates were recently added to the run, including a stop in Huntington, NY at The Paramount on April 13 [tix], and Poughkeepsie, NY at The Chance on April 16 [tix]. An updated list of dates can be viewed at the end of this post.

Ace will be joined on the road by rhythm guitarist/vocalist Richie Scarlet, bassist/vocalist Chris Wyse (ex-The Cult) and drummer Scott Coogan (ex-Brides of Destruction).
