Orphaned Land go live and unplugged

Orphaned Land have announced a Europan acoustic tour starting starting in September.

The 25-date journey includes UK stops in London and Manchester in October, and follows a run of full-power festival appearances on the continent.

Frontman Kobi Farhi says: “Anyone who has seen an unplugged Orphaned Land show knows that it’s an unforgettable experience. It’s always nice to strip our songs with different arrangements.

“I’ve waited a long time to take my ‘Jesus white dress’ out of the closet. I guarantee it’s going to be a holy musical experience – something to remember.”

The Israelis will be joined on the shows by the Stimmgewalt male and female choir, with support will be provided by Molllust.

Orphaned Land recently reported they were working on their sixth album – their first without Yossi Sassi, who left last year to concentrate on his solo career. The follow-up to 2013’s All Is One is expected in 2016.
