_ Yakuza is entering the studio to record their next outing that will be released later this year. Beginning the 6th May, the band will enter Engine Studios in Chicago to craft their 6th studio effort. Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Yob, Rwake) will conduct this piece as he has been for the last few Yakuza releases.
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 video. 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 in support of the film. This can be viewed here.
