New York, New York – Think back to the last time you heard a really great band? I’m talking about a band that totally causes you to loose control! A band that brings about that all too familiar 3 am feeling; pushing the gas pedal in overdrive! (Drum Roll Please) Ladies and Gentlemen, let me be the first to introduce you to Brooklyn’s own: “Shinobi Ninja” The 6 piece band known for high energy, amazing acoustics, and an assorted genre of style brings it non-stop! Consisting of members Baby G, Duke Sims, Maniak Mike, Axis Powers, Terminator Dave, and Alien Lex; this band is on a steady crash course with stardom! The band legendary work ethic and desire push the relentless goal of becoming the biggest band Ever. Period!
Armed with a new single “Subcon“, and a debut album coming in November (Blessup); the band has a lot to cheer about. “New music every Tuesday til infinity” is the model the band lives by! What If Times prove to get no better than this? If so, I’m good where I’m at! “What if Times”, a single released in 2015 to rave reviews, is still by far my favorite of all times! However, It is almost impossible to favor one track…… wait about a week, and surely Shinobi Ninja will drop another classic; and you’re back in love all over again!
Just last week, Shinobi Ninja dropped “Subcon“, the infectious tune with a wicked riffs and super dope lyrics is gaining traction nationwide! Baby G spits fire as usual, giving the track sex appeal while the band rocks out with plenty of bass, in your face! The visual for Subcon (Official 360° Music Video) gives you excellent 360 degree VR video experience. It supports Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear, Google Cardboard and many more VR devices.
Overall, I say this with all sincerity, “Shinobi Ninja just may be the best band I’ve ever heard! The band has the total package and a common goal! I look forward to following these guys all the way to the Grammy’s! Keep Rockin! If you haven’t seen this band perform live, you’re missing out on a treat! ($$$$$ Certified 5 Stackz) ~Renzo
