Yakuza Offers Studio Update and New Video Footage

Chicago's YAKUZA has offered an update from the studio online here, in addition to posting some new video footage on the band's MySpace page featuring the video for "Chicago Typewriter," as well as live footage.

"Alright, got the drums done over at Electrical Audio - the home of Steve Albini in Chicago," frontman Bruce Lamont said. "Now we have moved into Volume Recording / Semaphore Studios for the duration of the recording for Transmutations. Sanford [Parker, producer] (Minsk, Pelican, Rwake) is killin it. Keep you posted."

YAKUZA began demoing new material in the band's hometown at Semifour Studios for 'Transmutations' on Feb. 28 and is scheduled for a late 2007 release through Prosthetic Records. 'Transmutations' will be the follow-up to last year's critcally-acclaimed 'Samsara,' and the band will continue previewing new material live Apr. 8 with Genghis Tron and labelmates Kylesa as well as supporting Goatwhore on Apr. 20. Frontman / saxophonist Lamont will also make appearances on March 15 for a SxSw showcase at room 710 at 8 pm in Austin, TX and will follow that up with a March 16 appearance at the Furniture Records showcase.

YAKUZA on tour:
4/08 Chicago, IL – Beat Kitchen (with Genghis Tron, Kylesa)
4/20 Milwaukee, WI – Vnuk's (with Goatwhore)
