News : Shinobi join Riot! Entertainment family

By on October 22, 2012

Newly established Sydney based alternative rock outfit, SHINOBI have recently signed to Riot! Entertainment. The band have been dubbed as a mishmash of Shihad, Grinspoon, Helmet and the Foo Fighters.

Check out the band’s latest release, ‘Against The Brave’, which was released in August of this year.

Despite playing over 200 NRL first grade games, representing NSW in the State of Origin and playing for Australia, Eric Grothe Jnr’s main love has always been music.  Eric always kept his music and sporting life separate because this is no gimmick! A highly talented singer/songwriter/guitarist Grothe formed the firebrand heavy rock outfit SHINOBI in 2004. Teaming up with Eric are his brother Daniel on bass and life-long mates Darren Stapleton on guitar and Wayne Langfield on drums. It wasn’t until last year after retiring from football did Eric find serious time and really crank up the SHINOBI machine.
