Australian metallers Twelve Foot Ninja unveil epic new single “Over And Out” featuring guest appearance from Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmayluk. Watch the official music video for the song below.
The song is taken from Twelve Foot Ninja’s upcoming album “Vengeance”, due out October 15 via Volkanik Music.
Band’s lead vocalist Nik “Kin Etik” Barke on collaborating with Tatiana: “We wanted someone who could represent the lyric ‘the devil in my blood’ – both the darkness and the light. Tatiana embodies this perfectly so asking her to feature on it was a no brainer.”
He continues on the lyrics: “The song is an ode to the complicated relationship we have with our own mortality and how death can seem like the arms of a lover beckoning us to an early demise. The French first coined the phrase l’appel du vide which is the feeling of wondering what it would be like to jump in front of a truck or to jump off a cliff. It translates into English as the ‘call of the void’. The phenomenon is actually a positive affirmation that by not answering the call you unequivocally choose life.”
Tatiana comments: “When the Twelve Foot Ninja guys asked me to feature on one of their new tracks, I immediately said yes without even hearing it! The song and video were a lot of fun and very different from anything I’ve done with Jiner … it’s a great pleasure to be an honorary member of the Ninja clan now!”
