Twelve Foot Ninja Announce New Album, Unveil “Start the Fire” Video
Twelve Foot Ninja, who last week released a new song called “Start the Fire,” have now shared a video for that track as well as announced that their next album, titled Vengeance, will arrive on October 15 via Volkanik Music.
The new album will feature a multimedia element, including a high fantasy novel titled The Wyvern and The Wolf (by Nicholas Snelling) and a graphic novel, also called Vengeance, which is available now via twelvefootninja.com.
Twelve Foot Ninja crept back into our collective consciousness this past May with “Long Way Home,” the band’s first new music since their 2016 album, Outlier. The single arrived with an online video game, Brusnik’s Long Way Home, developed by band leader and guitarist Stevic Mackay himself.
Guitarist Stevic Mackay offers of the new video and album:
“‘Start The Fire’ drew lyrical inspiration from Todd Phillips and Scott Silver’s portrayal of the Joker. When you start treating people according to broad prejudice, they’re left with little reason not to become what they’re supposedly guilty of already being. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
“The video concept revolves around the threat of total annihilation. The strung-up band is being injected with a copper-based enzyme that, when mixed with human blood, can be extracted to power up current collector fuel cells (purposed for reanimating Primordian bio-technology). The band’s performance is a shared, mutual delusion. It’s all pretty straight-forward, really.”
