To understate it in the biggest way possible, 2016 was a big year for Twelve Foot Ninja. Tours across the US at some of the country’s biggest rock festivals and alongside some of the biggest rock and metal bands on earth, they dropped their second full-length record Outlier, (Top 5 Billboard Hard Rock Chart debut and top 10 overall ARIA Chart debut) that scored them an ARIA award nomination, they toured Australia with Disturbed and headlined their own sold-out shows as well AND dropped two of the most hilarious filmclips – ever – for their singles One Hand Killing and Sick, which earned them a combined 1.7 million views on Youtube.

Now, with their 2017 ‘SICK’ Single tour kicking off on Saturday just gone with a Sold-Out performance at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne with Ecca Vandal and Figures, they are today announcing their supports for the rest of the tour, which continues around Australia through February and March – tickets are already selling like the proverbial ninja hotcakes.

Victorian dates on the tour will catch ECCA VANDAL and OSAKA PUNCH, Queenslanders have scored OSAKA PUNCH and HUMALITY on all dates, Western Aussies will see SPARROW and NUCLEUST take the stage, Adelaide crew get locals COLIBRIUM and JAPAM, Canberrans have scored TROLDHAUGEN and NA MAZA, Wollongong and Sydney will see TROLDHAUGEN and HEMINA and Newcastle’s show rounds out the tour with local legends MAJORA.

To understand how Twelve Foot Ninja developed a fervent underground following and garnered international attention, you have to see them live. They have amassed an enviable following of fiercely loyal, yet musically open-minded fans thanks to their two EPs, debut album Silent Machine, and most recently released ARIA-nominated album Outlier.

Twelve Foot Ninja’s Outlier garnered a tonne of praise in 2016, with Music Feeds stating “There’s so many ideas explored over the duration that it’s hard to explain exactly what Twelve Foot Ninja have unleashed with Outlier, as there’s nothing in the world to accurately compare it to. That sentence alone should translate as mission accomplished for the band and must purchase for heavy music fans worldwide. The Twelve Foot Ninja is on the march.” and killyourstereo.com praising it, saying “‘Outlier’ is ten songs that are more than just your average rock and metal tunes. In fact, Twelve Foot Ninja are more than just your average rock and metal band.”

Twelve Foot Ninja’s OUTLIER record is OUT NOW and in stores. Available from twelvefootninja.com, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, JB Hi-Fi and all good stores.
