NINJASPY Announce New Video ‘Speak” + Canada Tour


unnamed (5).jpg
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 storeiTunesCD Baby and Bandcamp.

Festival co-founder Jesse Valstar comments:

“The team members of West Metal Entertainment poured their sweat and blood into making this year’s line up for Armstrong Metalfest the best year yet! A large portion of this year’s line up consists of bands who will be releasing albums in 2017. The fact that so many bands in Canada are able to write and record quality material is a real testament to the thriving metal scene we have. The band submission process is a grueling gauntlet of awesomeness, but personally I love every second I dedicate to the brilliant artists of Canadian Metal! 

I am especially excited to have Revocation on this year’s edition of Armstrong Metalfest. Their style is hella fitting for the festival and I know they will be well received! Also, their album “Great Is Our Sin” is fantastic front to back. I’ll be front row center screaming my heart out for sure!

I am very proud of the work our team has put into year nine of Armstrong Metalfest. Our work is paying off, so far this year we have broken every record for ticket sales we have ever had. As a community we built this festival from the ground up. As the festival grows, so does our community. We are all proud of this big beautiful beast!”

NINJASPY Announce New Album ‘Spüken’ + New Video ‘Speak’


For Fans of Twelve Foot Ninja, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mike Patton, RHCP, Gojira, Devin Townsend Project, Skindred

Reggae Metal Fusion NINJASPY Announce New Album ‘Spüken’ + New Video ‘Speak’

‘Spüken’ produced by Garth Richardson (Kittie, RATM, Mudvayne, The Melvins)

NINJASPY, a trio of blood brothers have been experimenting with metal fusion since 2006. Hard, heavy, hook-laden music that runs the gamut of reggae, surf, metal and more make up the band’s rule-breaking formula for notoriety. All this combined with an explosive and powerfully unhinged live show got NINJASPY off the ground in a hurry. Releasing their 2007 debut ‘Pi Nature’ and their 2013 EP ‘No Kata’ with a graphic novel, the band of brothers have teamed up once again with prolific producers GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mudvayne, Gallows) and Ben Kaplan (Biffy Clyro, Atreyu, Haste the Day) for their next full length ‘Spüken’ due out April 14, 2017.

Years in the making since spring 2014 when NINJASPY launched the “Jump Ya Bones” and crowd funding Campaign, the band was able to raise $15,000 to fund the new full length. They began recording in November 2014, taking their culmination of nearly a decade of songs and narrowing them down to an epic 10 track experience to demonstrate all their downbeats to breakdowns to their weaving of reggae, hardcore, metal and much more.

“These 10 songs span a decade, so there are a lot of different feels happening from song to song that represent what we got into over the years. It’s like we spent 10 years swallowing everything life threw at us, then we threw it all back up again, and are now able to listen to the blended, half-digested version of it.” says vocalist / guitarist Joel Parent.

‘Spüken’ was recorded and mixed sporadically over the next two years at in Vancouver BC and in the spring of 2016 between recording sessions, the band teased fans with a filmed and recorded live acoustic performance of their track ‘Azaria’, a song that is included with full metal instrumentation on the new genre-bending album. It showed the true diversity of the band and their ability to take manic and intense music and make it tender and raw.

The band’s first full single / music video ‘Speak’ can be watched at the following link below and can be downloaded from their online store, iTunes, CD Baby and Bandcamp.

Music Video – Speak –

Show Dates:
March 18 – Vancouver, BC @ Rickshaw Theatre –  (The Dreadnoughts 10 Year Double-Show PunkSTRAVAGANZA)
