Who are you?
We are Ninja Academy, a bass and drums instrumental duo. No, there is no singer and yes, we do dress like ninjas when we play.
Where are you from?
We are from Los Angeles, born and raised.
What do you do?
Indo-Ninja – bass, Outdo-Ninja – drums. We also have some special members: Donkey Punch – martial arts, Gongis Khan – The High Priestess
Why do you do whatever it is you do?
“We started this ninja shit, and this is the motherfucking thanks I get?” We’ve been playing together for many years, in many bands. This group is just a progression and extension of that.
What are you working on?
We’re working on getting our latest album, bra’ka dOm, out there. We released it in September. We want the world to hear it.
We’re also working on some new tunes. But again, we’re still trying to get this album out there. This will be our second West Coast tour and we’ll probably do a South Western regional tour in August.
When will you be here? With who?
We will be in Arcata at the Alibi on Monday, April 17th. We’re touring with our friends, The Mormons. It looks like we’ll also be on KHUM earlier that evening.
The Mormons are a 5-piece, post punk band — they rock hard. Yes, they dress like Mormons. Check them out and be converted.
Yes, we’re on Myspace.
