Legendary English guitarist John Sykes (Tygers Of Pan Tang, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Blue Murder) will release his first album in 19 years later this year through Golden Robot Records. The as-yet-untitled disc (its previously announced title of Sy-Ops” has now apparently been scrapped) is expected to include such tracks as Dawning Of A Brand New DayBelieve In Yourself, My Guitar and Out Alive.

The 59-year-old completed the material for the album nearly five years ago. “But then my manager died,” he explained. “With him I lost someone I could really trust. So I put the disc on ice.”

Sykes added that his first album since 2000’s Nuclear Cowboy will live up to his fans’ expectations. “People who like what I did on the 1987 [self-titled album] from WHITESNAKEand the two studio records from BLUE MURDER” will be pleased by the new material, he said.

The CD will reportedly features guest appearances by the following musicians:

* Josh Freese (Weezer, A Perfect Circle, Guns N’ Roses, Devo): Drums 
* Tony Franklin (The Firm): Bass 
* Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction): Bass 
* Jamie Muhoberac (The All-American Rejects, Fleetwood Mac The Rolling Stones): Keyboards

John recently played on a Gary Moore tribute album, on the song, Still Got The Blues (For You), which can be heard, here.

    I’m looking forward to hearing John’s playing when Tygers of Pan Tang re release their “Spellbound” album, complete with live tracks later next month. At least I have confidence that album will be released! :o)
