Super stoked to share this video with you, it was somewhat of a struggle to get it out, like a mini birth. not that I’ve ever gave birth but I would imagine it would suck. I won’t bore you with technical details but despite apparent odds it’s here now and I’m pretty happy about it! major props to one of the few bands out there that are writing new songs I actually like!
Released: August 26, 2016

Twelve Foot Ninja is a metal band from Melbourne, Victoria that released its debut album Silent Machine in 2012. The band consists of Kin (vocals), Russ (drums), Stevic (guitar), Damon (bass) and Rohan (guitar). They won Best New Talent at the 2014 Revolver Golden Gods Awards (America’s only hard rock music awards) as well as two listener-voted awards from SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal the year before. The band broke a world record for the most amount crowdfunded for a music video. Their first headline tour of Europe in April 2017 sold out five of the seven UK shows.
Outlier is the band’s second studio album. The album debuted at #1 on the Australian 100% Independent Album chart, #2 on the ARIA Australian Artist Chart, and #6 on the overall ARIA chart. In the US, Outlier debuted at #15 on Billboard’s Alternative Rock chart and #3 on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart.
Originally, guitarist Steve “Stevic” MacKay wanted to call the band ‘Tough Elf Alfalfa’. The name didn’t stick and after a game of ‘would you rather..?’ with a mate, he came up with Twelve Foot Ninja. When Stevic asked drummer Shane “Russ” Russell what he thought of the name, Russ replied: “Yeah, it’s good… if you’re like, 7 years old!”.
