Mexican extreme-metal outfit Brujeria have tapped "Orange Is the New Black" star Jessica Pimentel as a guest vocalist for their remaining North American tour dates. The singer and actress will play the first of 11 planned shows with the band tomorrow, November 8th, at the Broadberry in Richmond, Virginia; from there, the expanded band will head west, joined by Cypress Hill/Fear Factory/Biohazard supergroup Powerflo and Texas punks Pinata Protest. (Find a full list of dates below.) Earlier this year, Brujeria returned with Pocho Aztlan, their first LP in sixteen years.
Pimentel is hardly a stranger to the metal world. When she's not stalking the Litchfield yard as Maria Ruiz on "OITNB", the Brooklyn native fronts Alekhine's Gun, a local death-metal outfit that's shared stages with the Ocean, Kittie and others. Earlier this year, Pimentel also contributed guest vocals to Origin's cover of Brujeria's "Revolucion" from the Kansas tech-death crew's Unparalleled Universe LP.
