April 1: Bruce Kulick appears on DJ Peace "Do You Love Me ?" EP
From : blabbermouth.net / Kiss Related Recordings
Mark "Peace" Thomas planned to record a remake of the KISS song "Do You Love Me?" for his debut CD titled "ManSmarts: The Music" (released on October 15, 2013) but he had enough original material to complete the project. "Peace" decided to wait until the summer of 2014 until his DJ work lead him to a chance encounter with a former member of KISS: Bruce Kulick.

Thomas is known for his DJ-MC services for weddings throughout Southern California but 2013 would see "DJ Peace" crossover from playing recordings to recording artist.
DJ PEACE (feat Bruce Kulick) - Do You Love Me ? EP
In September 2013, Mark ran into one of his hard rock heroes and former guitarist for KISS, Bruce Kulick, at Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City, California.
This lead to Mark approaching Bruce about playing on a "DJ Peace" cover of "Do You Love Me?" Bruce agreed and liked the contemporary EDM-infused version of the song.

"Bruce adds that classic KISS sound to the track which is very contemporary sounding," stated producer Jeff McCullough.
He added: "DJ Peace has arranged the song with a ZEP-style guitar riff and added a solo that was never there which really makes the song rock!"

DJ Peace is treating his new recording as a tribute to KISS with a release date of April 10, which is the day the founding members of KISS (Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, Gene Simmons and Peter Criss) will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

March 27: Black Metal band  BLACK ANVIL covers "Under The Rose"
From : blabbermouth.net
New York-based black metal crew BLACK ANVIL will release its third full-length album, "Hail Death", on May 27 via Relapse Records.
BLACK ANVIL bassist/vocalist Paul Delaney, citing KISS' "Destroyer" and METALLICA's "Master Of Puppets" as inspiration. "I wanted it to be a little more rock 'n' roll sounding because I felt the songs were a little bigger and structured. It tells a story from beginning to end and the recording reflects that." As such, the behemoth offering includes a bonus track: a cover of "Under The Rose" from KISS' iconic ninth studio recording, "The Elder".

March 27: New Ace Frehley album "Space Invader"  release date
From : acefrehley.com
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ACE FREHLEY will release SPACE INVADER, his first new solo album in five years, via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on June 24th, 2014. The album will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker.” This album is the first release under Frehley's new universal deal on eOne Music.

Frehley has released an official statement surrounding the exciting news:

“Life on Earth has been very good to me, and the body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time. Today I see no obstacles before me and my creativity has never been more fine tuned. Growing up in an Alien world has enhanced my senses and allowed me to succeed where others would have failed. The best is yet to come!”

Widely known as the original “Space Ace" and founding guitarist for 16 cumulative years (over 2 tenures) of the multi platinum selling rock band KISS, Frehley is demonstrably the most popular original member. In addition to having the best selling solo album career (vintage or current) among the original foursome, Frehley’s self titled Ace Frehley, released in 1978, went on to sell over one million copies, producing the only Top 40 single, “New York Groove,” from any of the legendary KISS solo albums; (peaking at #13). The massive hit was most recently featured in an episode of cult show “Entourage” and was also KISS’ second bestselling download in 2012, besting such KISS Army anthems as “I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” “Beth” and “Calling Dr. Love” even after 36 years.

Since departing from KISS, Frehley went on to release four more solo albums and one live EP including his most recent effort, "Anomaly" in 2009, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a welcoming response among critics. "’Anomaly' shows why many rock and metal guitarists list ‘Space Ace’ as a prime six-string influence," said Rolling Stone.

Ace Frehley recently spent time in the studio with drummer Matt Starr (BURNING RAIN) and bassist Chris Wyse (THE CULT, OWL) working on Ace's new CD.

"I'm really excited about this record, because everybody that's heard the tracks just says they think some of the tracks are even better than Anomaly, and even showing another side of me," Frehley told Rolling Stone in an interview for the magazine's current cover story. "There's two songs I'm going to re-track, but I'm doing mostly overdubs. Most of the hard work is over."

Frehley also said that the album would feature collaborations with his girlfriend Rachael Gordon and told Rolling Stone that an album of covers and remakes would follow 'Space Invader'. "That one will be a real treat for the fans, too," Frehley said. "I want to get some celebrity guests to play on it, some of the covers and stuff, get Slash, Mike McCready, my buddy from Pearl Jam. You know. The list is endless." Then, with a laugh, he added, "I might even get Gene Simmons to play bass on a track."
