Avant-garde progressive experimental metal band YAKUZA will release its next full-length album via Profound Lore Records. Due in October, the follow-up to "Transmutations" CD will be recorded in July with Sanford Parker this July and "will be approached in a unique kind of way," according to a press release. Mastermind Bruce Lamont explains, "The songs we are working have some breathing room so to speak. I don’t think we will nail down exactly where things will go or how long a said part will be played until we record. With that in mind, I think the course of action will be to record live in the studio with a minimal amount of overdubs to keep the spontaneity things."
YAKUZA is slated to play this year's Maryland Deathfest and is heading to Europe next month with fellow Chicago comrades MINSK.
