Yossi Sassi names 3rd album

Yossi Sassi has confirmed his third album will be entitled Roots And Roads – and it’ll be the first to be released under the banner of the Yossi Sassi Band.

The former Orphaned Land man has also promised a number of surprises, as pre-ordering begins to help fund the recording process.

Sassi says: “This release hopefully includes more vocally-driven songs than before, featuring some guest vocalists that you haven’t seen before in my project.

“Overall it really shows a nice evolution from the material I used to compose for Orphaned Land, and my solo work. I think you’ll appreciate it.”

Former Guns N’Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal will contribute once again, while Sassi’s daughter Danielle will make her studio debut on flute.

Roots And Roads is expected at the end of May this year. Further details will be revealed in due course. The pre-order includes a number of purchase options.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
