Yamaoka performs live at GungHo's Let it Die E3 concert

The Hellcat Saints join former Silent Hill composer at show in LA.

While the Microsoft Theatre (former Nokia Theatre) will be filled with Nintendo-themed music thanks to the orchestrated Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions concert, at the other side of the same street in LA GungHo Online Entertainment is arranging a very different genre music event, this time filled with rock tunes, as its completely dedicated to the action-horror game Let it Die, from Grasshopper's Goichi Suda and Akira Yamaoka.

On Tuesday June 14, the Conga Room venue in Los Angeles is presenting The Hellcat Saints, the band created by the former Guns N' Roses musician Dave Kushner with a bunch of artists from other bands. At this event they'll be joined by Robin Finck (NIN), Blascko (Ozzy Osbourne's band), Joey Castillo (Queens of the Stone Age), Gilby Clarke (Guns N' Roses) and Franky Perez. Acting as guest artist, Linkin' Park's singer Chester Bennington will contribute with his voice.

The gig opens its door at 7PM local time, and Yamaoka-san himself will kick off the music with his unmistakable guitar sounds, as he's of course responsible for Let it Die's original soundtrack. Guest host is showman and comedian Bill Burr. There's a registration page at the game's official site, which seems to suggest tickets are free after previous approval/invite.

Suda51 and Yamaoka's love for this type of music and punk style is well known and has been illustrated in many games, and Suda-san himself told Gamereactor Let it Die "will have punk spirit".
