On June 24, founding Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley will release his first new solo project in five years just over a month after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Appropriately titled ‘Space Invader,’ the project will feature at least nine new songs, as well as a cover of ‘The Joker’ by Steve Miller.

Frehley, who was in Kiss for 16 years over two tenures, notched a hit solo record in 1978′s ‘Ace Frehley’ before ever officially leaving the band. That album, which went to No. 13, also produced the Top 40 hit ‘New York Groove.’ The guitarist has issued four more recordings since splitting with Kiss – with the most recent being 2009′s ‘Anomaly,’ which debuted at No. 27 on the Billboard charts.

“The body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time,” Frehley said. “Today, I see no obstacles before me and my creativity has never been more fine tuned…The best is yet to come!”

Frehley and the rest of the original members of Kiss will be inducted into the Rock Hall on April 10 — though, unfortunately for fans, the group will not perform. Frehley will also serve as a presenter at the 2014 Revolver Golden Gods Awards, to be held on April 23 in Los Angeles.
