YAKUZA Extends Touring Plans with INTRONAUT

Chicago forward-thinking metal act, YAKUZA, has extended touring plans into December with a string of dates playing alongside the like-minded INTRONAUT. Already teaming up with INTRONAUT for a string of dates with MISERY INDEX and labelmates BURN IN SILENCE, YAKUZA will soldier on for another handful of dates, also meeting up with STRETCH ARM STRONG and VIVISECT along the way.

In other news, YAKUZA frontman Bruce Lamont recently took part in the making of a mix CD for charity. Helping out Chicago’s Rock For Kids, proceeds went to the organization. “The organization asks club owners, musicians, writers, artists, etc. to put together a mix CD and case and they are auctioned off,” Lamont recently told ChuckRoaster.com. “This is the 3rd year I have done it. The disc ended up going for $50. Thats pretty cool.” Lamont included YAKUZA‘s “Monkeytail” from the band’s critically-lauded Samsara record.
