Ace Frehley To Reissue Anomaly Ahead of Australian Tour

Ace Frehley will re-release his 2009 album ‘Anomaly’ in September ahead of his Australian tour in October.

Anomaly was Frehley’s fifth solo album. Frehley worked on the album with Marti Frederiksen, who fronted the fictitious band Stillwater in the movie Almost Famous.

The new edition of the album has been expanded. “I think this new edition of the album is great – a special treat for the fans,” says Frehley. “And, with the bonus tracks, they’ll get a little more insight into how the album came together.”

Among the new tracks are two previously unreleased demos: “Hard for Me,” which was later reworked into the album’s “Foxy and Free,” and an early take of “Pain in The Neck,” different in tempo and arrangement from the final version. Also included is the previously digital-only Anomaly bonus track “The Return of Space Bear.”

Anomaly came 21 years after Frehley’s previous album ‘Trouble Walkin’. “There was a lot of pressure on me, because I hadn’t done an album in 20 years,” explains Frehley. “I wasn’t sure it wasn’t going to be well-received. Luckily, it was!”

Gene Simmons will appear on Ace’s next album. “I am writing for my next studio album,” he begins, “Gene came over my house to write – it went fantastic. In a matter of three hours, he and I came up with two new songs for my (next) record. I’m thrilled.” The occasion was momentous for another reason: “it was the first time I have worked with him while I was sober,” he reveals, “and it was a pleasure.”
