XANDRIA Announces New Bassist

German symphonic metallers XANDRIA have recruited Steven Wussow (DOMAIN, SHYLOCK, ILLECTRONIC ROCK) as their new bassist.

Wussow (pictured below), 32, will make his live debut with XANDRIA in April and May when the band is scheduled to perform in Russia, Belarus, Argentina and Brazil.

Comments the bassist: "On stage I feel at home and it's the streets where my heart is. Having passed a few lights and crossroads in my search, I am happy to finally have found my partners in crime I was looking for."

Says XANDRIA: "We are thrilled to have found THE candidate we had been chasing for over the past months and we are excited to start our upcoming live and recording endeavors with Steven."

XANDRIA will hit the studio later this year to record the follow-up album to last year's critically acclaimed "Neverworld's End".

"Neverworld's End" was released in North America on March 6, 2012 via Napalm Records.

The band in December 2010 announced the addition of singer Manuela Kraller to the group's ranks.
