Frontiers Records has announced the signing of Bruce Kulick for the European release of “BK3,” his third solo album, on January 29, 2010.

Kulick, who first gained notoriety as a member of Meat Loaf's “Bat Out Of Hell” touring band, may be best known for his twelve years (1984-1996) as lead guitarist of KISS, during which time he appeared on nine gold, two platinum and one multi-platinum KISS albums. It is, however, the wealth of experience he has gained in his 13 post-KISS years that shines through on “BK3.”

The album takes listeners for quite a ride over its twelve songs... from the frenetic and anger-fuelled "Fate" (co-written by Kevin Churko, known for his work with Ozzy Osbourne), to the philosophical and uplifting "Life." Never one to mind sharing the spotlight with other talented musicians, Kulick invited several guest artists to appear on “BK3”, including Gene Simmons of KISS on the anthemic "Ain't Gonna Die," Doug Fieger (lead vocalist of The Knack) on the soon-to-be pop classic "Dirty Girl," Tobias Sammett (Edguy, Avantasia) and Eric Singer (KISS) on the fierce "I'm The Animal," Nick Simmons (son of Gene) on "Hand of the King", former Union cohort John Corabi on the moody "No Friend Of Mine" and guitar legend Steve Lukather (Toto) on the exciting instrumental "Between The Lines."

"Many albums lack cohesion with different vocalists, but I know that my guitar playing is the glue on BK3," Kulick says. "There was the clear goal of making absolutely the best record that I could put together. I feel like this is my Revenge."

“BK3” includes the following tracks:
Fate
Ain’t Gonna Die (featuring Gene Simmons)
No Friend of Mine (featuring John Corabi)
Hand of the King (featuring Nick Simmons)
I’ll Survive
Dirty Girl (featuring Doug Fieger)
Final Mile
I'm The Animal (featuring Tobias Sammet and Eric Singer)
And I Know
Between The Lines (featuring Steve Lukather)
Life
Skydome (from the BK CD “Audiodog”) - Exclusive Bonus Track for Europe

Bruce plans to take “BK3” to his fans through as many avenues as possible, including live concerts, appearances at KISS Expos and media.

Wow, this mean the whole KISS family will have released albums within the past year, except Vinny Vincent and Peter Criss.
