Bruce Lamont on stage with Yakuza at Gramercy (more)

Cover bands aren't usually my scene, but it's definitely interesting when the "Robert Plant" also does time in a band that I dig. In this case, the cover band is Led Zeppelin 2 and the frontman is Yakuza vocalist Bruce Lamont. Led Zeppelin 2 is currently touring the US and will hit Gramercy Theatre on Friday (1/14). Tickets are still available. Full tour dates are lised below.

In related news, Bruce Lamont is prepping to release his new LP Feral Songs For The Epic Decline via At A Loss Records on January 25th. Much like his work with Yakuza, Bloodiest, and Circle of Animals, it shows the Chicago native putting his patented spin on heavy music, this time in a more ambient/goth direction. Check out "2 Then The 3" available for stream below and download above, and look for the record at the end of January.

All tour dates, the song stream, and some video is below.
