Twiztid have announced they will release ‘Electric Lettuce’ – a mini-album in celebration of all things weed – on their record label Majik Ninja Entertainment on Friday, April 23rd with pre-orders dropping this Friday, April 2nd on MNEStore.com.
The pair have also announced ‘Docu-Stream’ an epic livestream concert event scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 20th, 2021. Tickets go on sale at 12pm EST tomorrow (Wednesday, March 31st) from www.StreamTwiztid.com.
In keeping with Twiztid tradition, the special livestream will take the place of the band’s annual, in-person 4/20 celebrations and will instead provide fans all around the world a chance to come together and celebrate with their Twiztid family for Weed Day.
The ‘Docu-Stream’ will take place on Tuesday, April 20th and will feature two performances from Twiztid – the first will feature face-painted Twiztid performing their classics hits. The second will be unpainted and will feature Twztid and their drummer Drayven as they perform some of their more rock-centric tracks. Throughout the stream, Jamie Madrox and Monoxide will be recounting previously untold stories, giving fans unprecedented access to Twiztid’s 20+ year history. The event will also feature special guests Blaze and ABK.

The Twiztid tale is gritty and fascinating folklore, built on self-determination, fearless creativity, and the elimination of the boundaries between artist and audience. The dedicated supporters who stand with co-conspirators Jamie Madrox and Monoxide are more than fans: they are family. The duo remembers what it meant to be part of the crowd before they leaped the barricades onto the stage themselves, and with unrelenting passion and aggression, they’re taking all of us with them.
There’s a rogue’s gallery of hooks, rhythms, and riffs in the Twiztid bag of tricks. For 25 years, they’ve concocted artistic anarchy rooted in the streetwise storytelling sophistication of hip-hop, trance-inducing hypnotic beats, and the seething bite of hard rock rage. Merging horror movies, comics, and a level of depravity and violence rivaling the grimiest of pulp fiction in the annals of Americana, Twiztid is the reflection of a tightly knit subculture and the sound of unbridled id.
Twiztid spin emotional truth into even the wildest of tales, resulting in something endlessly relatable to the alienated and disenfranchised. The music, multimedia, and merchandise originate from their own Majik Ninja Entertainment, headquartered in their native Detroit.
With over a dozen entries on the Billboard charts, Twiztid built themselves into an institution, without the help of mainstream gatekeepers at MTV, traditional radio, or major press. They’ve brought their adrenaline-soaked, unbound artistic mania on the road, with metalcore acts like Motionless In White and on the Vans Warped Tour, all without forsaking the worldwide family they helped strengthen during their initial decade-plus on Psychopathic Records. Twiztid built the connection they maintain with their fiercely dedicated legion of supporters to last and to evolve. Everything Majik Ninja does harken back to that original impulse shared by Monoxide and Jamie Madrox: to make art that swings a big ax at the boundary between audience and artist.
