Twelve Foot Ninja

Twelve Foot Ninja

Twelve Foot Ninja are one of Australia’s hottest, most innovative, and experimental new bands. They have just returned from a 30 date U.S. tour with one of America’s most unique heavy metal live acts, In This Moment, supporting the recent stateside re-release of their critically acclaimed debut album Silent Machine (Volkanik Music).

Earlier this year, the band took home the prestigious “Best New Talent” award at the sixth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards. Cementing a cult-like following on the back of their brand of alternative rock, the band recently wrapped their first North American headlining tour performing throughout the U.S. and Canada, winning over thousands of fans at festivals with their explosive live performances at Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, and Rocklahoma.

The debut single from Silent Machine, “Coming For You,” is currently impacting and reacting at radio now and has surpassed more than 1,000,000 YouTube views. Check out the video now online at: Widely praised by audiences and critics alike for their ability to combine juxtaposing genres seamlessly, “Coming For You” is the perfect embodiment of this.

In conjunction with the album re-release (featuring two acoustic bonus tracks), the band has bundled a special edition of Silent Machine with a 72-page full-color companion comic book containing 12 individual narratives inspired by the 12 songs featured on the Silent Machine. The band collaborated with acclaimed comic artist Keith Draws to produce the comics, which are based on the original Twelve Foot Ninja fable co-written by guitarist Steve ‘Stevic’ Mackay. The story chronicles a sole ninja’s mission to restore balance in a world headed toward a self-inflicted apocalypse. The special edition CD/comic book bundle can now be purchased exclusively at their online store.

Twelve Foot Ninja are often classified as heavy fusion or progressive hard rock but whatever genre you call them, they are known for their seamless genre hopping, soaring melodies over heavy rock, and witty music videos – they take an authentic approach to each style and tie it all together to deliver an inimitable sonic flavor. Stamped with a five-star review by Blunt Magazine, Silent Machine has been described as “reggae, Fate of Nations-era Robert Plant rock, space-rock, djent, Queensrychean hard rock and more, yet they somehow manage to tie it all together without sounding too ADHD…if you loved Faith No More’s King for a Day, you’ll feel right at home in this Silent Machine.

Twelve Foot Ninja is Nik “Kin” Etik on vocals, Steve “Stevic” MacKay on guitar, Damon McKinnon on bass, Shane “Russ” Russell on drums, and Rohan Hayes on guitar.
