Twelve Foot Ninja announce 30 date U.S. tour with In This Moment

Revolver Golden Gods 2014 'Best New Talent', Australia's Twelve Foot Ninja, to tour the US with In This Moment

One of Australia's hottest, most innovative, and experimental new bands Twelve Foot Ninja have announced they will join one of America's most unique heavy metal live acts, In This Moment, on a U.S. tour this fall and winter. Ticketmaster pre-sale begins Thursday, September 11 and public sale begins Friday, September 12.

With 30 dates confirmed, Twelve Foot Ninja will be on the road supporting the recent stateside re-release of their critically acclaimed debut album Silent Machine. 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.

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-colour companion comic book containing 12 individual narratives inspired by the 12 songs featured on the album. 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 flavour. 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.'
