July 15 : LION'S SHARE update (feat. guest solo by Bruce Kulick)
From: Blabbermouth
Swedish melodic metal masters LION'S SHARE went to a house in Falun, Sweden (to be able to work closer to singer Patrik Johansson's home) recently, and set up a mobile studio there. Patrik (also in ASTRAL DOORS) sang on five new songs: "Toxication Rave", "Ring of Stupidity", "Trafficking", "Emotional Coma" and "Temple of Time". This means the vocals now have been recorded for 12 out of the planned 14 songs for the upcoming CD. The demo guitars, bass and drums will be replaced with the actual album takes later this fall/winter. 11 tracks are expected to appear on the CD, with three extra songs set aside to be used as bonus tracks. If everything goes according to plan, the band hope to have the album mixed and ready by January 2007 for a possible May/June release. 

As previously reported, former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick has already recorded a guest solo for the song "The Edge of the Razor". The new album will be the group's fifth, with the first four having been released by Century Media and Massacre Records between 1995 and 2001.

July 13 : ACE FREHLEY On Upcoming Circus Of Power DVD
From: Blabbermouth
CIRCUS OF POWER — Alex Mitchell (vocals), Ricky Beck Mahler (guitar), Gary Sunshine (guitar), Ryan Maher (drums), and Marc Frappier (bass) — have reunited and will be playing their first New York City show in over 12 years as part of director Drew Stone's release party for the new film "The Road To Ruin". For this special "20th Anniversary Show", which is scheduled to take place September 27 at Don Hills, they will be performing their classic self-titled debut in its entirety as well as choice selections from their 1990 (RCA) release "Vices" and "Magic & Madness" (Columbia) 1993. 

The show will be filmed for CIRCUS OF POWER's upcoming longform DVD retrospective, "Got Motor? (Swamp Boogie In The Big City)", which is due for release in early 2007 through Renegade distribution. The DVD will include many classic performances of the band as well as the now legendary appearance from the "Morton Downey Jr." show. The show is a time capsule of New York's chaotic rock scene of the late 1980s. Highlights from the show include the band performing their song "White Trash Queen" from their debut album along with KISS guitar player Ace Frehley. The DVD will also contains live performances as an rare acoustic version of "Don't Drag Me Down" from the "Vices" album from Japanese TV.

July 5 : ERIC SINGER: Live ESP CD Due Later In The Year
From: KissOnline.com
KISS drummer Eric Singer recently answered a few questions from fans via the band's official web site. A few excerpts from the question-and-answer session follow:

Q: What have you got on your plate in terms of studio albums? Is ESP an "ongoing band?" I thought it was just a one-off thing? I remember reading a few years back that you had a "glitter band" tribute group you started are they defunct now? Ever thought about releasing a live gig on CD under the ESP or UNION name? 

Eric: "I am currently on tour with ALICE COOPER and will be going to Japan with KISS at the end of July for four shows, which I think should be very cool and a lot of fun! ESP is an ongoing 'project' or fun band, if you will... We do gigs a couple/few times a year when possible or schedules permitting. We did record a 'live' CD in Japan for release later this year and may also release a 'live' DVD as well from another show we did in Sydney, Australia. GLAMNATION was the fun glam band that used to play around the L.A. area in summer of 2000. We did do shows on and off for a few years but everyone has moved on to other things and the band faded out. It was a lot of fun during that time I must admit since I got to play songs from such a great era...

July 3 : a follow-up to Christine Sixteen: A High-School Tribute To Kiss
From: Patrice Beaudette
After our incredible trip to Myrtle Beach for the Kiss CoffeeHouse Grand Opening (read full story at KISSonline) we decided to do another KISS tribute during the next school year instead of Metallica.

I'm proud to announce the follow-up to "Christine Sixteen: A High-School Tribute To Kiss". Since we had so much fun doing the first one, we decided to continue the KISS adventure with a second and final KISS tribute. Many songs had to be let go the first time around so it gives us a chance to finally record them. 

The CD will be pressed, again, at 500 copies and will be available in April 2007. We're NOT taking pre-orders at this time. 

Our web site, www.christine16.net, will go under construction during July and August to reflect the new project. 

Once again, this is a non-profit venture. And look-out for new singers as well as returning ones...

Here's the set list for CHRISTINE SIXTEEN 2: ANOTHER HIGH-SCHOOL TRIBUTE TO KISS:
 
Christine Sixteen at Myrtle Beach for the Kiss CoffeeHouse Grand OpeningBlack Diamond
Hard Luck woman
Dirty Livin'
Charisma
War Machine
Baby Driver
Shock Me
Larger Than Life
Into The Night (Ace Frehley)
Creatures Of The Night
Watchin' You
Got Love For Sale 
Nowhere To Run
100,000 Years
Master And Slave
Jungle

The Metallica project is therefor post-poned for a year...
