Ace Frehley releases ‘Rockin’ with the Boys’ from upcoming album ‘Spaceman’

Founding KISS guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Ace Frehley has released a new song called “Rockin’ with the Boys.” This is the second song Frehley has released this year, from his forthcoming all-new “Spaceman” album, due Oct. 19 via Entertainment One (eOne).  Frehley released the track “Bronx Boy”  in April. 

“Spaceman,” Frehley’s eighth solo LP, features nine new original tracks, including a cover of Eddie Money’s “I Wanna Go Back,” a ripping power pop makeover of the original.

“No need to worry, I’ll be home soon, ’cause I’m rockin’ with the boys,” Frehley sings on“Rockin’ with the Boys,” which tells the tales of life on the road. Ace said he wrote the original version of the song back in KISS’s heyday in the ’70s. Both “Rockin with the Boys” and “Bronx Boy” are available on all streaming platforms and are iTunes instant grat tracks for fans who preorder the album.

In addition to Ace’s distinctive guitar sound on each track, Ace played bass on all the songs on “Spaceman” except for two.  The listener might recognize the mighty dinosaur growl of a bass tone belonging to Gene Simmons on the album opener, “Without You I’m Nothing,” which Gene also co-wrote,  and “Your Wish is My Command.” Both songs were recorded at Frehley’s home studio in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

“Spaceman” (a title suggested by Simmons,) serves as the first collection of all new Frehley-penned material since 2014’s “Space Invader,” which debuted at number 9 on the Top 200 Chart. The LP scored the highest charting position of any former or current  KISS band member ever and marked Frehley’s first return to the Top 10 since KISS’s 1998 “Psycho Circus” reunion album.
