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"

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) at
