Vancouver's NINJASPY, a trio of blood brothers that have created a metal fusion of hard, heavy, hook-laden music that runs the gamut of reggae, surf and more will be releasing their next full length 'Spüken' due out April 14, 2017. The album is once again produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mudvayne, Gallows) and Ben Kaplan (Biffy Clyro, Atreyu, Haste the Day) to follow their 2013 EP / graphic novel 'No Kata' and 2007 debut 'Pi Nature'. The album was crowd funded and helped the band raise $15,000 to record the new full length, which features a culmination of nearly a decade of songs that have been narrowed down to an epic 10 track experience to demonstrate all their downbeats to breakdowns to their weaving of reggae, hardcore, metal and much more.
Before its official release, NINJASPY have teamed up with Idioteq.com for exclusive full stream premiere of the album at the following link: http://www.idioteq.com/ninjaspy-spuken-record-premiere/
Vocalist / guitarist Joel Parent comments:
"Spüken is the musical equivalent of a magician removing his own entrails. The guts just keep coming, like handkerchiefs from a sleeve, and its painful, colourful and cathartic all at once, in the same way that vomiting after hours of nausea is such a relief. The musical ideas that came together in this project span many years and come from many influences. Hearing them all together is a trip. There were a lot of hard times in the years while this record was being written and most, if not all of these songs are tied together by the search for something greater than oneself. Empowerment by going through ones pain, all this is woven into an album that is another spastic stylistic roller coaster not unlike our previous albums, but with smoother blending. From song to song there is a lot of variance, but within songs we have managed to take contrasting genres and combine them in more nuanced ways, with less hard cuts. This album is colourful, and the palette is dark."
'Spüken' will be available as of April 14th on the band's online store, iTunes, CD Baby and Bandcamp.   Music Video - Speak - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32B6xJBNHYs Idioteq Album Premiere Metal-Reggae Fusion NINJASPY 'Spüken' + Canada Tour
