Thousand Foot Krutch
After nearly a decade as one of Tooth & Nail Records’ top selling artists, TFK once again blazed their own path through uncharted territory to become one hundred percent independent. The recording of The End Is Where We Begin was completely funded through a Kickstarter campaign that shattered all expectations and propelled the album to number one on the Billboard Hard Rock chart.
Thousand Foot Krutch’s music has always been enveloped with heat and energy. The interplay between the pulsing bass, courtesy of Joel Bruyere, and pounding drums of Steve Augustine are the backbone over which Trevor spits out some of the most rapid fire and melodic lyrics in rock and roll. While musically “heavy,” they’ve always veered more towards the funk of Rage Against the Machine while simultaneously incorporating the fast-paced, rhythmic singing of Michael Jackson circa the Bad days.
The End Is Where We Begin was not only the start of a new chapter for the band, but one of those rare albums that delivered exactly what the fans wanted, and something that would be difficult to top. Fast forward two years and over 250 shows, TFK reunited with Aaron Sprinkle (who co-produced 2003’sPhenomenon, 2009’s Welcome To The Masquerade, and The End Is Where We Begin) to once again co-produce alongside front man Trevor McNevan.
