Ace Frehley Signs Deal With "Season Of Mist"

Ace Frehley Signs Deal With Season Of Mist

Season Of Mist Records reports:

"The whole Season of Mist staff is immensely proud to announce that we inked a deal with legendary guitarist ACE FREHLEY, of KISS fame!

For the first time in nearly 20 years, Ace has emerged to add a new exclamation point to his celebrated solo career. Scheduled for liftoff on September 15th, the original KISS guitarist's fifth solo album, Anomaly, will be released on his own Bronx Born Records, with Rocket Science (USA) and Season of Mist (Europe) providing full label service platforms.

To commemorate the event, Gibson has created their second Ace Frehley signature Les Paul guitar - the first (in 1997) was one of the best-selling signature models of all time.

One of the most beloved personalities in rock 'n' roll, Ace is the man behind not only KISS' iconic logo, but the all-time stadium classic 'New York Groove'. The record includes several nods to his distinguished career throughout, from the pickup acrobatics of 'Fractured Quantum', through a supercharged cover of SWEET's 1975 classic 'Fox On The Run' to the unmistakable signature solo on 'Outer Space' and wah-wah scourge of 'Genghis Khan' (featuring backup vocals from MEAT LOAF's daughter PEARL ADAY).

It should go without saying, but "this album has some heavy, heavy songs," Ace promises."

Season of Mist is an independent record label and record distributor with subsidiaries in France and the United States. The record label was founded in 1996 by Michael S. Berberian in Marseille, France. From the start releasing Black Metal, Pagan Metal and Death Metal records, the label moved on to releasing albums of Avant-garde Metal, Gothic Metal and Punk bands as well. Season of Mist is widely respected as one of the top labels in the extreme metal scene. The label has two offices, one in Marseille, France and one in Philadelphia, USA.
