According to a posting on the KISS fan site KissNews.de, original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley's much-anticipated new album which was originally expected this spring has been delayed until the end of the year.
Fan-filmed video footage of Ace Frehley's March 3, 2008 concert at Metropolis in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be viewed below (courtesy of "Andrebeaulieu"). Photos of the Montreal show are available at MetalUniverse.net.
Ace Frehley was the featured guest on "The Metal File" with Mike Metal on February 29 on CHOM 97.7 FM in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The interview is now available for download at this location.
In a recent interview with DelmarvaNow.com Ace stated about his current solo tour, "Everyone in my new band is starting to lock in together and we all get along great on and off the stage. Things are good. Sobriety helps. It's much easier for me to tour now that I'm not waking up with a hangover every day.
"There's an old saying, 'The more you do, the more you can do.' I just think it's important that I get out there and show everyone that I'm trying to make a comeback."
Regarding why he's not playing new songs on the current tour, he said, "I'm going to wait until after the album comes out because I don't want everything on YouTube. I don't think we'll really be able to add more than three new songs to the set anyway. Everybody wants to hear certain songs from certain records. It's hard figuring out what to drop."
