One of Australia\’s hottest, most innovative, and experimental new bands Twelve Foot Ninja have announced they will re-release their 12-track debut album Silent Machine in the U.S.on Volkanik Music July 22. Ahead of the release of their debut single \”Coming For You,\” Twelve Foot Ninja recently 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 innovative 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 including Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, and Rocklahoma.
Though formed in 2008 in Melbourne, it\’s been said that Twelve Foot Ninja come from the place where your missing socks go… perhaps their tongue-in-cheek videos gives us an insight into where that place is! Never a band to take itself too seriously (except when it comes to their music), the band draw inspiration everywhere from classic kung-fu flicks to Buena Vista Social Club, Earth Wind & Fire to Korean drumming sensation Kwon Soon Keun, transmitting a mind-altering narrative while also showcasing Twelve Foot Ninja\’s explosive live performance. Do yourself a favor and don\’t blink, because you might miss something!
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.
