Twelve Foot Ninja, ‘Silent Machine’ Track-By-Track (Episode 2) – Exclusive Premiere
Are you ready for the Aussie invasion of Twelve Foot Ninja? The band is currently traversing North America in support of their ‘Silent Machine’ album and drummer Shane “Russ” Russell and guitarist Stevic Mackay recently took the time to film a track-by-track commentary about the disc. The second episode, featuring the rockers discussing six cuts, is exclusively premiering here at Noisecreep.
In the latest commentary clip, seen above, the musicians do a little multi-tasking, sharing the stories behind their songs while also making a little breakfast. In this video, you’ll get a rather colorful story on the origins of the track ‘Liberation,’ the rather unique way in which several songs started for the new album, and yes, given that they are in the kitchen the boys get sidetracked talking about bacon and the difference between ketchup and tomato sauce.
It’s definitely a fun watch for the viewer, as Russ and Stevic take you through their thoughts on the songs ‘Mother Sky,’ ‘Vanguard,’ ‘Liberation,’ ‘Rogue,’ ‘Myth of Progress’ and ‘Ain’t That a Bitch.’
