Hailing all the way from the land of New Jersey, The Number Twelve Looks Like You have been making mathy, shreddy jams since the early 2000’s. Their 2005 album Nuclear. Sad. Nuclear received near-universal international praise, and this very year marks the 12th anniversary of its release date. So in honor of this timely event, the TNTLLY dudes have been hard at work on a 12-date US tour from December 12th to the 23rd, celebrating everything the album brought to the world. And to help showcase some of the tunes, drummer Michael Kadnar has some exclusive live drum cam footage of their song “Jay Walking Backwards” from this very anniversary tour! If you haven’t had a chance to catch them on this run, or just want to see an insanely talented dude go ham behind the kit, you’re gonna wanna sit back and check this out.
It’s no secret that Michael is a total monster here. Syncing up quick time changes with ease and intensity, the man has it all when it comes to playing these songs. Relentless and complex, he still manages to make it all look so effortless. On a scale of 1 to 10, the guy is a 12.
To get more TNTLLY goodness and to maybe catch ’em on their next anniversary tour, hit up their Facebook and website. You can also check out an exclusive interview they did with Metal Injection at this year’s past NAMM. Stay shreddy.
