A band of brothers is using crowd-sourcing to raise money for an upcoming album in conjunction with their Jump Ya Bones tour.

Lead singer and guitarist Joel Parent, drummer Adam Parent and bassist Tim Parent of the Vancouver-based multi-genre band Ninjaspy will play at The Vat in Red Deer on April 26.

The band will feature music from their previous records, displaying eclectic sounds from hard-core metal and ska to reggae and funk.

The show will also feature three bands from Alberta, including Edmonton-based metal band All Else Fails, progressive metal band Illusive Man and Stettler-based metal band Cryptosis.

Aside from their Western Canadian tour, Ninjaspy will use a crowd-funding campaign on indiegogo.com to raise money to jump-start the production of their album.

The money will go towards recording, producing and marketing their album.

The campaign is running from now to May 15. Ninjaspy hasn’t disclosed how much they are hoping to raise or what people will receive for making a pledge towards the project.

The final product will be the band’s fourth studio record and second full-length album.

Advanced tickets to the show can be purchased for $10 at The Vat or 53rd Street Music. Admission is $15 at the door. Doors open at 8 p.m.
