INJURED NINJA BIOGRAPHY INJURED NINJA are an Australian avant-garde experimental rock group that formed in Perth, Western Australia in 2007. Its members are Steven Aaron Hughes, Dominic Pearce, Jake Steele and Matthew Bairstow. In 2008, INJURED NINJA performed a mixture of improvised and rehearsed gigs in art galleries and small performance spaces throughout Perth, releasing their debut EP ‘Circuitboard’ in October. The band became quickly notorious for their intense, loud and unpredictable performances. The band toured to Japan in early 2009 performing 11 shows across the country in less than two weeks and later performed their first tour to the east cost of Australia in December that year. In January 2010 the band released a 12” split single with Perth act French Rockets, named ‘IDDQD’ which included a DVD with a video for each band’s songs, directed and produced by members of INJURED NINJA. These band members have since gone on to produce a series of music videos for many high profile Australian acts. The split single won the WAMi (West Australian Music Industry) Award for ‘Most Popular Single’ in May 2010. Their debut album ‘INJURED NINJA vs. Skylazer’ was recorded in Perth in late 2010 with engineer Kieran Kenderessy. Due for release on Perth-based label Heartless Robot Productions in February 2011, it combines intense walls of guitar drone, with dance / break-beat and dub / reggae influences and captures the many facets of the INJURED NINJA live sound. The 11-track album will be packaged with a comic outlining the story of ‘vs. Skylazer’, drawn and designed by frequent INJURED NINJA art collaborator, Peter Long. First single from the debut LP, ‘Golden Top Mountain Journey’ was released as a 7” single in October 2010 to highly positive reviews across the country and has received nationwide airplay. INJURED NINJA will be releasing a split 7” (‘Chrysopoeia’) on boutique Melbourne based label Aniseed Records in early 2011. INJURED NINJA will be touring US in March / April 2011 including an appearance at the 25th SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. DISCOGRAPHY Albums Vs.
