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 togther 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.

Stretch Arm Strong are out with the video to their new single 'The Sound Of Names Dropping', from the album 'Free At Last'. You can watch it online at their official website, stretcharmstrong.net.
Right after Stretch Arm Strong finished playing songs off their new record, Free At Last, to a packed invite-only pre CMJ party at New York's SCB, a colorful dreadlocked singer made his way up on stage as SAS drummer John Barry laid down some rather out of character beats. Stretch vocalist, Chris McLane, introduced (though really, at this point none was needed) and handed the mic to George Clinton, of Parliament Funkadelic, who immediately went in on some improvisational funk rhymes.
For almost 10 minutes, bass player Jeremy Jeffers and Barry kept up the rhythm, not too surprisingly well, considering they are one of the best combos out there, while guitarists David Sease and JC Lopez traded off on solos whenever Clinton took a break to beam out at the captivated crowd.
"It was our pleasure to be a part of something so great like that. It was the first time we've ever played a CMJ related event and to have that included with someone as influential as George Clinton is mind-boggling. We all had so much fun. It was an honor and a privilege."
