Melbourne progressive rock troupe Twelve Foot Ninja have announced a national tour in support of their debut album Silent Machine.
Kicking off in January, the heavy rock quartet will take their Faith No More-meets-Periphery infused alternative rock around the country to launch the record.
TFN have spent years honing their craft and working on their debut record (I remember it was ‘nearly ready’ when I first met them in 2009) – and their hard work has made way for spectacular results.
The band supported Dead Letter Circus and Fair To Midland on an extensive national tour earlier this year and have received strong critical reviews for ‘Silent Machine’ since its November release. The praise extends as far as overseas, where self-confessed TFN fans Periphery have lauded their Australian friends’ release as one of the best of the year.
You can make up your own mind, however, by checking out their tight and energetic live show.
