September 2 : Goo Goo Dolls' co-founder collaborates with Buffalo's KISS THIS to cover "Hard Luck Woman"!
From : wnypapers.com (Anne Leighton Media)
Buffalo's KISS THIS! and the Goo Goo Dolls' Robby Takac are collaborating on a new music video, "Hard Luck Woman," and they’ll premiere it at the 18th Annual Music Is Art Festival between 6 and 7 p.m. ET Saturday, Sept. 12. The performance will be on the "Friends of MIA" channel at musicisart.org.

Because of the pandemic, Takac and his "Music Is Art" team are holding Music Is Art online. The virtual festival runs from 6 p.m. until midnight ET at
www.musicisart.org.
There will be multiple channels streaming simultaneously, with various content, allowing the viewer to pick and choose what parts of the festival they desire to watch.

The Music is Art organization is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) founded by Takac in 2003. Music is Art operates in conjunction with its staff, sponsors and volunteers, as well as collaborations with several partner organizations. Every year the festival strives to enrich the Western New York community with access to live music. The hope is to encourage people to find their musical voice, think about how music touches their lives, and, most importantly, think about the fact that music is art.

To commemorate this "first" for MIA, Takac teamed up with crowd favorites KISS THIS!, the East Coast's premiere KISS tribute band, for another "first": a cover of the KISS classic "Hard Luck Woman." KISS THIS! and Takac filmed a video for the song with Promoting Buffalo's Charles Butera. Butera's advertising agency and production company has a decade of video production experience, utilizing state-of-the-art and industry-leading tools. Promoting Buffalo also specializes in graphic design and photography for many local artists and businesses.

KISS THIS! has been a staple of Music Is Art since 2016, as they performed at the festival for the first time that year, opening for the Goo Goo Dolls, in front on thousands of attendees at Delaware Park.

"'Space Truckin' was recorded years ago, and then I just re-recorded some parts and changed it a little," Frehley said in a statement. "We never ended up putting it on a record, so it was just sitting around. It turned out very well. Rob Sabino is a very accomplished studio musician, and we actually grew up in the Bronx together, so we go way back."

It was previously reported that "Origins Vol. 2" would feature guest appearances by Lita Ford (on THE ROLLING STONES' "Jumpin' Jack Flash"), CHEAP TRICK's Robin Zander (on HUMBLE PIE's "30 Days In The Hole", former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick (on Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression", ROB ZOMBIE's John 5 (on BEATLES' "I'm Down" and CREAM's "Politician")

July 23 : ACE FREHLEY teases cover of DEEP PURPLE's 'Space Truckin'' from 'Origins Vol. 2' Album
From : Blabbermouth.net
Ace Frehley has shared a teaser for his cover version of the DEEP PURPLE classic "Space Truckin'". The track will appear on "Origins Vol. 2", the sequel to his 2016 collection of cover songs that inspired the former KISS guitarist, due later in the year via eOne.

Frehley's full version of "Space Truckin'" is expected to make its online debut on Tuesday, July 28.

It was previously reported that "Origins Vol. 2" would feature guest appearances by Lita Ford (on THE ROLLING STONES' "Jumpin' Jack Flash"), CHEAP TRICK's Robin Zander (on HUMBLE PIE's "30 Days In The Hole", former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick (on Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression") and ROB ZOMBIE's John 5 (on BEATLES' "I'm Down" and CREAM's "Politician").

Last year, Frehley told The Weekender that "Origins Vol. 2" will once again feature a LED ZEPPELIN tune, "Good Times Bad Times". He also revealed that he wanted to lay down the vocals for "30 Days In The Hole" himself, but that he "just couldn't cut it, vocally, because [Steve] Marriott's just too good of a goddamn singer. I just couldn't do justice to his vocals," he explained. "But I remembered that I had bumped into Robin Zander years ago at a meet-and-greet and he had mentioned to me that he'd like to sing on one of my upcoming records, so I remembered that and gave him a call. And he killed it as well. He sounds like a young Marriott."

Released in April 2016, "
Origins Vol. 1" debuted at No. 23 on The Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 16,000 equivalent album units.
