Following their 2016 sophomore album, OUTLIERVENGEANCE is part of a huge creative project spanning various mediums that aims to take the band’s storytelling beyond their music.

Over five years in the making, PROJECT VENGEANCE includes a high fantasy novel titled THE WYVERN AND THE WORLD, written by author Nicholas Snelling, and a graphic novel titled VENGEANCE. 

The story of THE WYVERN AND THE WORLD was conceived by Twelve Foot Ninja guitarist and producer, Stevic MacKay and his partner Fiona Permezel and tells the story of an orphaned samurai boy named Kiyoshi who is adopted by a ninja clan leader.

MacKay also penned the graphic novel accompanying the album, featuring artwork by George Evangelista, which sees the band journey through alternate dimensions on a quest to conquer an evil alien entity.

As if that wasn’t enough, the band have also unveiled the film clip for their latest single, ‘Start The Fire’ as well as announcing a show at The Croxton on Thursday October 21 to launch their forthcoming album.
