The Chicago based experimental quartet YAKUZA have just been added to the first half of the OPETH/LACUNA COIL tour that will begin May 1 is Seattle, Washington. Garnering high accolades from the broad spectrum of the rock media for their Century Media debut, "Way of The Dead", YAKUZA can play to crowds as diverse as their influences, as proven by their recent appearances at the March Metal Meltdown and South By Southwest showcase.

The band spent most of this past year sharing stages with the likes of the DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, CANDIRIA, THE POSTMAN SYNDROME, HIGH ON FIRE and KEN VANDERMARK and the OPETH tour is another perfect way for them to reach another whole new audience.
