Bonded By Blood Expresses Love For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Earache Records has issued the following statement about Bonded By Blood recording a cover of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's theme song:

"The Empire State Building will light the NYC sky with green tonight. No, it's not Earth Day hangover. It's to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. One person who wishes he was here to see this is BONDED BY BLOOD frontman, Jose "Aladdin" Barrales.

"Jose's life was largely impacted by the 4 heroes in a half shell. "I got into TMNT around age 5. At that age looking into a tv screen and watching a bunch of turtles that are kicking ass was a really big deal." After an entire childhood following the 4 mutated sewer dwellers, Jose amassed an impressive collection of Turtles memorabilia throughout the years. "They are still a big part of my life and I keep most of the TMNT toys and comics in a box next to my other collectibles. I still have an original Michelangelo in its package - I'm proud of that one." The Turtles have experienced a major resurgence in popularity over the last few years, but to Jose and the rest of BONDED BY BLOOD, the larger than life stars of cartoons, comics, toys and games were always as big as ever. Their feelings shine through in their fun cover of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song on 2008's FEED THE BEAST.

"Played at every show on the band's Masters of Disaster tour, Jose took particular pride in belting it out at their recent free show in Queens, NY. "When I got up on stage and yelled how much I loved being able to sing the song in the hometown of the Ninja Turtles, I felt a great rush of energy from everyone in the room." Listen to BONDED BY BLOOD's cover of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song in a short entitled Generation: T.M.N.T. In it, director James Rolfe (The Angry Video Game Nerd) and his pals talk about their childhood love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (and their corresponding action figures) from the perspectives of present-day adulthood. Watch the video (which includes BONDED BY BLOOD's cover during the finale) here."
