Four additional musicians have been confirmed for the upcoming tribute album "Kiss My Ankh: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent". Former ADLER'S APPETITE vocalist Sheldon Tarsha, former ALICE COOPER guitarist Ryan Roxie, former ALTARIA bassist Marko Pukkila and current WHITE LION drummer Troy Patrick Farrell have collaborated on a new recording of the VINNIE VINCENT INVASION power ballad "That Time of Year". The original song was the lead single and MTV music video from the second INVASION album "All Systems Go", which featured the recording debut of vocalist Mark Slaughter. A 45-second sample of the new version is now available at the official "Kiss My Ankh" MySpace page. Tarsha, Roxie, Pukkila and Farrell join the previously announced Steve Brown (TRIXTER, STEREO FALLOUT), whose acoustic rendition of the Paul Stanley/Vinnie Vincent composition "A Million To One" recently premiered on Eddie Trunk's nationally syndicated "Friday Night Rocks" radio program.

Though Vinnie Vincent himself has not released any new material in over a decade, "Kiss My Ankh" will pay tribute to the undeniable musical legacy of the former KISS guitarist. Vinnie's compositions are widely regarded as a highlight of the KISS catalog and remain a staple of the live KISS set list. Included on the tribute will be selections from the three KISS albums to which Vinnie contributed, as well as the two albums he released with the VINNIE VINCENT INVASION. Additional artists and track listings will be announced as they are confirmed.

"Kiss My Ankh: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent" is scheduled for a summer 2008 release.
