Orphaned Land Co-Founder Yossi Sassi Quits The Band

(Prog) Orphaned Land guitarist Yossi Sassi has quit the band, he's revealed in a statement. The co-founding member and main composer of the Israeli outfit says he's turning his attention to a new solo album but vows he's not turning his band on his past or his fans.

Sassi reports: "If there's something stronger than our past it is our future, and our dreams, as we evolve and understand what is right for us in the path ahead.

"I always strive to be creative, innovative, compose the next authentic thing, and devoted my life to fuse and mix together the East and West. Books could be written on what I've done for and gone through since founding Orphaned Land. Above all, I'm most proud of my vast compositions, arrangements, production and the musical boundaries explored." More from Sassi.
