VINNIE VINCENT Tribute Album Cover Art Revealed

SplitScreen Entertainment has revealed the cover art for its upcoming tribute album "Kiss My Ankh: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent". The official release date, full track listing and complete artist roster will be unveiled on August 6.

Artists confirmed so far include Steve Brown (TRIXTER, STEREO FALLOUT), whose acoustic rendition of the Paul Stanley/Vinnie Vincent composition "A Million To One" recently premiered on Eddie Trunk's nationally syndicated "Friday Night Rocks" radio program. Also appearing on the tribute are former ADLER'S APPETITE vocalist Sheldon Tarsha, former ALICE COOPER guitarist Ryan Roxie, former ALTARIA bassist Marko Pukkila and current WHITE LION drummer Troy Patrick Farrell, who have collaborated on a new recording of the VINNIE VINCENT INVASION power ballad "That Time of Year". Additional contributors include guitarist Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), guitarist/keyboardist Paul LaPlaca (ZANDELLE, Z02, CHRIS CAFFERY) and drummer Dennis Leeflang (SUN CAGED, EPICA, BUMBLEFOOT), who will offer up a dark interpretation of the foreboding KISS track "Unholy". Also confirmed is a new recording of the VINNIE VINCENT INVASION anthem "Boyz Are Gonna Rock" by Mike Weeks, guitarist on the most recent solo album by original INVASION vocalist Robert Fleischman, along with former NITRO bassist T.J. Racer and drummer Andre LaBelle, who appeared alongside Fleischman on the unreleased third VINNIE VINCENT album "Guitars from Hell".

Though Vinnie Vincent himself has not released any new material in over a decade, "Kiss My Ankh" will pay tribute to the undeniable musical legacy of the former KISS guitarist. Vinnie's compositions are widely regarded as a highlight of the KISS catalog and remain a staple of the live KISS set list. Included on the tribute will be selections from the three KISS albums to which Vinnie contributed, as well as the two albums he released with the VINNIE VINCENT INVASION.
