Ace Frehley scores US Top 10 debut with Space Invader

Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has scored a US Top 10 debut with his latest album, “Space Invader.”

Billboard reports the project enters the Billboard 200 at No. 9 with opening-week sales of 19,000.

“Space Invader” is both the rocker’s first top 10 and his highest-charting album, surpassing the No. 26 peak of his self-titled 1978 debut, released at the height of KISS mania.

Ace's last release, 2009's “Anamoly”, debuted and peaked at No. 27 with a 17,000 sales start.

Frehley recently premiered his cover of the Steve Miller Band’s 1973 classic, “The Joker.” The title track to Miller’s 1973 album of the same name was a No. 1 US hit for the rocker.

“The Joker” is the second track issued from Ace’s project, following the lead single, “Gimme A Feelin’”.
