Cosmic Ninja never fail to leave an impression with their high-octane mash up of alternative and electronic sounds. Anthemic sing-alongs, fat metal breakdowns, and full-on rave numbers are all on display in this mélange of energy and enthusiasm.
After the release of their first single “Redefine” in April 2015, the band played their first shows opening for local and touring bands. In October 2015, they played a sold-out concert at the Crofters Right in their hometown of Bristol to celebrate the release of their 2nd single “Eradicate”. Later that year they paid homage to Rage Against the Machine with a homemade live video for the song "Bulls on Parade”.
In 2016 the band had local success with their 3rd single ‘Judgement Day’ which was featured on BBC Introducing in the West and many other local radio shows. During the summer of 2016, they played their first festival shows with appearance at Bug Jam, Hazy Days and Bristol Harbour Festival. Following the success of Judgement Day, they released their next single ‘Hypnosis’ in December, which was picked up by local Glastonbury FM presenter, Ian Liversidge who has championed the band ever since.
In March 2017, Cosmic Ninja performed at the O2 Academy Bristol as part of the A Shot at Discovery competition. After a summer of live performances and song writing, the band recorded their first EP with producer Jayce Lewis (Fear factory, Gary Numan, Brian May) in November 2017 at Northstone Studios in Bridgend, South Wales. Jayce Lewis also performed drums on the tracks.
In February 2018, they performed to a packed out audience at Glastonbury Calling. In June, they released the first single from the EP, “Yeah Right” which instantly became a fan favourite and allowed the band to get further airplays, and build connections outside of Bristol and Somerset. The band played a series of festivals throughout the summer, including the sold out ‘The Godney Gathering’. After a busy summer Cosmic Ninja released the follow up single ‘We Got Up’, which was also picked up by BBC Introducing in the West.
On May 10th 2019, they released their self-titled EP showcasing the final single from the EP ‘Sympathy’ which also featured on BBC Introducing in the West and Fresh On The Net.
Over the summer 2019, the band have brought their explosive party vibes and politically charged tracks to audiences at various festivals including: The Godney Gathering, Bristol Pride Festival, LFest, Warton Music Festival and many more.
The band are currently working on their follow up EP which will be recorded over the winter 2019/20. They will be returning to the live scene in spring 2020.
