Yakuza Confirms More Tour Dates, Posts New Song, "Congestive Art Failure," Online

Chicago's YAKUZA has confirmed more dates on the band’s upcoming tour down to South By Southwest, featuring a showcase alongside Serj Tankian, and up the West Coast into Canada, culminating in a hometown show in April supporting Disfear. Additionally, the band has posted the track “Congestive Art Failure,” which joins the previously posted new tracks “Egocide” and Praying For Asteroids” on the band’s MySpace page.

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 online on YouTube.
