Alt metal goofballs Twelve Foot Ninja have released a stompy new nu metal song called “Over and Out” with Jinjer‘s skilled vocalist Tatiana Shmayluk. The result is something everyone from Faith No More to Coal Chamber fans could rock with, a melodic and sturdy hard charger about life being worth living. The track is the third preview of their forthcoming album (Vengeance, out Oct. 15 via Volkanik Music).

“The song is an ode to the complicated relationship we have with our own mortality and how death can seem like the arms of a lover beckoning us to an early demise,” explains singer Kin Etik. “The French first coined the phrase ‘l’appel du vide,’ which is the feeling of wondering what it would be like to jump in front of a truck or to jump off a cliff. It translates into English as the ‘call of the void.’ The phenomenon is actually a positive affirmation that by not answering the call you unequivocally choose life.”

On inviting Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmayluk to work with the band on “Over and Out”: “We wanted someone who could represent the lyric ‘the devil in my blood’ – both the darkness and the light. Tatiana embodies what we needed for this track perfectly so asking her to feature on it was a no brainer. Her band Jinjer and Twelve Foot Ninja have played together a number of times and we instantly connected the first time we met in the Ukraine capital Kyiv. We’ve since tom to respect Tatiana as a musician and as a human so we’re stoked she’s agreed to jump on this track.”

“When the TFN guys asked me to feature on one of their new tracks, I immediately said yes without even hearing it!” says Tatiana. “The song and video were a lot of fun and very different from anything I’ve done with Jinjer… it’s a great pleasure to be an honorary member of the Twelve Foot Ninja clan now!”

We are big Twelve Foot Ninja fans around here (that way they wont make burgers out of us). But, seriously…the Australian band and Revolver Mag’s recent Best New Artists Golden Gods winners are a fucking blast (with a bit of a Faith No More thing going on with modern twists). So yeah, a blast a half of rock n roll ninja goodness. We had to send photographer Catharina Christiana to capture these guys givin’ it hard to The Loft in Poughkeepsie, NY as part of their first headlining US tour. And just for fun I threw the “Mother Sky” video into this post past the photos, cuz I mean…those girls. Yeah.

Twelve Foot Ninja make burgers out of internet troll

The more I have thought about it, I think Twelve Foot Ninja‘s “Aint That A Bitch” video (NSFW) is maybe the most ridiculous video I have seen in many years. I literally laughed my ass off watching it and had to glue my buns back on with crazy glue.  Have you ever wanted to get revenge on a stupid internet Troll? I don’t mean the ‘Enter Sandman” guy from the Metalsucks threads (he is hysterical. ‘Exit Liiight!!!!!!!!!)…I mean, the real haters who bring nothing to the table and live to rip down good bands.

Twelve Foot Ninja show us how to do it! Make burgers out of trolls! Now they need to tour with Trollfest and have a battle royale onstage!

Fans helped the Australian group raise over $52,000 to make the video, setting a world record for the most amount crowd-funded for a stand- alone music video! A gory tale of retribution against an internet troll, the wild video also features cameos from long-time friends/tour mates Periphery, as well as a Penthouse Magazine Pet.

This shit is super funny and fans of The Karate Kid, Rocky, low brow humor and great music should check it out HERE.
