Ace Frehley has announced his touring lineup for the upcoming ‘Space Invader’ U.S. tour.

The original KISS guitarist has first brought on rhythm axeman Richie Scarlet, who has previous experience playing with the Spaceman.  Richie played with Ace previously back in ’84 and ’85 and also through ’89 to ’95 and was also known for touring with Sebastian Bach.

Also announced is Chris Wyse, well known for his bass playing with The Cult, who will be handling bass duties for the tour.  Wyse, aside from playing with The Cult, has previously recorded with Ozzy Osbourne and also played on Mick Jagger‘s 2001 solo album. Chris can also be heard on Frehley’s latest album, “Space Invader”, on select tracks.

And finally getting behind the drum kit for the upcoming tour is none other than Scot Coogan. Coogan played with Ace for five years until 2012 when he left to focus on other projects. Coogan has since toured and recorded with the likes of Lynch Mob, Lita Ford, Def Leppard and Poison.

Scot says: “I consider Ace a friend, and I will always be his drummer.”

“When he called me about doing shows, I was honored. We are both excited to have the chance to play together once again.”

“I can’t wait to hit the road again with this new lineup,” says Ace.  “I’ll be performing Ace classics as well as songs off my new CD, ‘Space Invader’, for the enjoyment of the fans. Let there be rock!”

“Space Invader”, the first new solo album from Frehley in five years, sold around 19,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The album dropped back on August 19 via eOne Music.

“Space Invader”, which was produced by Kevin Churko (In This Moment, HELLYEAH), includes 11 brand new original songs and even a cover of The Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker”.
