Available now from The BuzZ Store, the new Yellowjackets album A Rise In The Road features ten new compositions by the band, and also introduces Felix Pastorius as the band’s new bassist. About the album’s title: “It’s about the challenges that people face in their lives and whatever path they are on: It’s not always smooth sailing, it’s not always a level road,” explains Ferrante, with regards to the project’s meaning. “Certainly, over the 32 years that we’ve been a band, we’ve had things come up, challenges such as musicians that have left the band, business people, relationships that you have built over the years. Things come to an end, and you have to meet the challenge and keep going forward.”
