Seven years after their first full length record, the three brothers who make up Ninjaspy kick off a tour in Pitt Meadows this week to drum up support for their next opus.

Since releasing its debut ‘Pi Nature, produced by Garth Richardson and Ben Kaplan, in 2007, Ninjaspy took its high-flying, super-entertaining and much-adored cross breed of metal and ska on the road.

The band toured across Canada and Japan in 2010, winning over legions of fans along the way. In 2013, the group  unleashed its musical graphic novel No Kata with the single Skaingkh (The Skank).

The long wait for a new album ends this spring, with Ninjaspy, a staple at Maple Ridge’s Adstock, promising to return to the studio in May with new material.

But before the band puts music to tape, it needs the support of its fans.

“You’ll have many opportunities to throw us a few bones during the IndieGogo campaign beginning April 1,” says Ninjaspy.

The band will be performing new songs on its Jump Ya Bones tour across Western Canada.

Comprised of brothers Adam (drums), Joel (vocals, guitar) and Tim (bass) Parent,  “the triad in blood” from Port Coquitlam see their music as a “swift, surgical amalgamation of a spectrum of styles and the subsequent eradication of narrow-mindedness.”

• NInjaspy play an all-ages gig with Guts and Glory and Nautilus at Pitt Meadows church hall, 12109 Harris Road on Friday, April 4. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or $8 if you share their event page on Facebook.
