Twelve Foot Ninja's Kin Etik and Stevic MacKay tell Loudwire about their next album, the fusion of their sound and more.
Twelve Foot Ninja
With a successful run with Periphery last year, it was evident that Twelve Foot Ninja impressed New York fans. When it came time for their headlining run, fans showed up energized at the Studio at Webster Hall to see them take the stage.
Right after their Golden Gods win for Best New Talent and right before they kicked off their headlining tour in promotion of their latest album ‘Silent Machine,’ two fifths of Twelve Foot Ninja made a stop in New York City. We got the opportunity to hang out with vocalist Nik ‘Kin’ Etik and guitarist Steve ‘Stevic’ McKay on their very unique press day.
Australian fusion band Twelve Foot Ninja have won over North American fans on their first ever U.S. tour with Periphery this year. With their high energy and combination of hard rock, heavy metal fused with reggae and Latin undertones, their sound is something fresh for music fans. Their latest release, ‘Silent Machine,’ is anything but silent. Instead it is forceful and heavy while the melodies have an infectious groove and are sure to give your eardrums a quantum lift.
Experimental metalers Periphery kicked off 2013 by opening up for Deftones and then went on to be a massive part of this year’s Summer Slaughter tour. They rounded out this year as headliners of their 'This Is Personal' tour and ended the trek at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. Stellar support included Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja.
Aussie rockers Twelve Foot Ninja are invading North America and they recently released the U.S. Tour bonus edition of their most recent album, 'Silent Machine.' Now, they're teaming with Loudwire to give listeners a chance to get more familiar with the tracks. Here we present the premiere of the first episode of the band's track-by-track commentary for the 'Silent Machine' record.
