Yakuza Recording Sixth Studio Album

Yakuza is entering the studio once again to craft a brand new release that will be unveiled later this year. The band has headed to Engine Studios in Chicago to create a 6th studio effort. Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Yob, Rwake) will once again bet at the helm, as he has been for the last few Yakuza releases.

Main man Bruce Lamont comments, "There is one common thread in Yakuza records - we thrive on VARIETY. We try to go to places we've never gone before and create open space - being experimental so to speak, but we still have a love for a good melody. Sanford is a big help bringing the sounds together. Lyrical themes focus on life and death, the light and the dark. Our last record was a reaction, somewhat of a warning call for what has been happening globally and spiritually but not in a religious sense. This album is the aftermath, the balance between the light and the dark. And as dark as it gets, there is always light at the end of the tunnel."

Yakuza is also preparing a brand new visual offering. Director Justin Baron has filmed a documentary on the band's history and unique sound. "Be That As It May: Yakuza's Seismic Consequence" will be released later this year and features appearances by members of Mastodon, Nachtmystium, Triptykon/Celtic Frost's Tom G. Warrior, and many more. Director Justin Baron is in need of funds to finish the project and has launched a Kickstarter campaign in support of the film.
