Original Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley's new solo album, "Anomaly", sold around 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.

In addition to the standard CD release, unique "Anomaly" packages were made available at Wal-Mart and Best Buy locations. The Wal-Mart version includes an Ace autographed tattoo while the Best Buy edition is printed on silver stock, like the Kiss "Double Platinum" album.

Released on September 15 via Ace's own Bronx Born Records, with Rocket Science providing a full label service platform in the US, "Anomaly" was produced and recorded in Westchester County, New York between 2007 and 2009 and was mixed in Los Angeles.

"Anomaly" official track listing:

01. Foxy & Free 02. Outer Space 03. Pain In The Neck 04. Fox On The Run 05. Genghis Khan 06. Too Many Faces 07. Change The World 08. Space Bear 09. A Little Below The Angels 10. Sister 11. It's A Great Life 12. Fractured Quantum 13. The Return of Space Bear (Dedicated to Tom Snyder) (iTunes exclusive)

Frehley last year spent time on the road fronting a band that featured second guitarist Derrek Hawkins, drummer Scot Coogan (ex-Brides Of Destruction) and bassist Anthony Esposito (ex-Lynch Mob).

    good for ace, surprising the album would chart so well, especially since he's not a household name
    that album cover belongs in that 'worst album art thread' that was here awhile ago, keen to hear this though
