Twelve Foot Ninja, ‘Silent Machine’ Track-By-Track (Episode 1) – Exclusive Premiere
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.
Taking time out from their busy schedule, drummer Shane Russell and guitarist Stevic Mackay head to the kitchen to make some tasty grub while also discussing their equally enticing 'Silent Machine' disc. In this preview, seen above, the musicians run through six of the album's tracks, including the breakout cut 'Coming for You.'
Russell says of the album opener, "It's got everything you want, like a good movie. It's got comedy, a little drama, some violence and some sex." The rockers also hit on 'Kingdom,' 'Shuriken,' 'Deluge,' 'Silent Machine' and 'Luna' during the 11-minute dialogue.
Among the nuggets you'll discover in this commentary include which track was introduced to the band during a trip to Subway, how the musicians feel about working some dubstep into a song, which 'Silent Machine' cut almost ended up being the album title and which song formerly went by the title 'Epic' for obvious reasons.
For those interested in the Twelve Foot Ninja 'Silent Machine' album, the bonus edition currently available at both iTunes and Amazon, as well as the site importCDs. You can also catch Twelve Foot Ninja rocking 'Silent Machine' songs on tour this fall, sharing stages with Periphery, Born of Osiris and Dead Letter Circus. Dates can be seen below:
