Yakuza Frontman Joins Cephalic Carnage Onstage in Chicago; Photos Available

YAKUZA front man Bruce Lamont recently joined Denver’s Cephalic Carnage Sunday Feb. 24 at Reggie’s Rock Club in his hometown of Chicago to join up and perform two aongs – the first being "Observer To The Obliteration Of Planet Earth" from Cephalic Carnage’s 2002 album "Exploiting Disfunction" and "Global Overhaul Device" from 2007's "Xeonsapien." Lamont guests on the recording of the later, and the recent collaboration marks the first time “Global Overhaul Device” has been played live. Cephalic Carnage is currently on tour with Darkest Hour, Emmure, and Whitechapel. You can check out some photos of the show here.

Meanwhile, YAKUZA hits the road March 9, which includes appearances at South By Southwest, including a showcase alongside Serj Tankian. YAKUZA continues to support the critically-acclaimed "Transmutations," which saw a summer 2007 release through Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to "Samsara," "Transmutations" was recorded with producer and multi-instrumentalist Sanford Parker (Rwake, Pelican, Minsk) in Chicago and has spawned a video for the track “Black Market Liver” which was directed by Sara Jean and is available on YouTube.
