Band offers perks to fans who donate

Ninjaspy brings cross Canada tour to Kelowna April 16.

Vancouver’s high flying, super entertaining, much adored cross breed of metal and ska, NINJASPY (a band of brothers literally), are proud to launch their new Indiegogo campaign to record their next full length album since releasing their cult followed debut ‘Pi Nature’ in 2007 produced by GGGarth Richardson and Ben Kaplan.

“Today marks the first step towards the making of a new record and we couldn’t be more excited. The campaign is going to bring us closer to our fans in ways we’ve never experienced and frankly it seems appropriate.  There should never be a disconnect between artists and people who love their work”. Comments drummer Adam Parent.

Ninjaspy‘s goal is to raise $10,000 to record, produce and market the album, fans who donate to the campaign are offered the following perks:
